Thor Hammers The Competition!

Thor brought down the hammer on this week's box office competition, bringing in an estimated debut of $66 million.

According to Box Office MojoThor's mighty box office opening of $66 million puts the Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman flick at the top of the box office this week! Thor also starred Anthony Hopkins, which puts two Oscar winners at the forefront of a superhero film -- that's a total recipe for success!

Who isn't excited we're still talking about Rio? The animated film took the fifth spot with $8.2 million. That puts Rio's gross total at $114.9 million.

Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon's film Water for Elephants came in at number six with $5.6 million, while Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family ranked number seven with $3.9 million.
