NEW YORK (November 17, 2013) “Thor: The Dark World" held the top spot at the box office for a second week with $38.5 million, holding off "The Best Man Holiday," according to studio estimates Sunday.
Opening nearly 15 years after the original "The Best Man," ''The Best Man Holiday" opened strongly with $30.6 million.
The Universal film, which drew an overwhelmingly female and African-American audience, was an unlikely challenger for Disney's "Thor,” but Marvel's Norse god has hammered audiences around the globe.
It has now made $479.8 million worldwide, already besting the original "Thor."
The box-office window will soon close for "Thor," though.
"Hunger Games: Catching Fire," which is expected to be one of the year's biggest debuts, opens Friday.
