Based on initial prerelease tracking, box-office observers were expecting Thor 2 – returning Chris Hemsworth in the title role — to gross a healthy $75 million in its domestic launch, easily exceeding the $65.7 million opening of the original Thorin May 2011.
But with the film’s mammoth showing overseas – it’s earned $133.4 million in less than a week — and the rising interest in North America, tracking now suggests Thor 2 will open notably higher. Thor 2’s performance also will be boosted by a last-minute decision to carry the film in roughly 305 Imax locations in the U.S. and Canada (it wills share space with Ender’s Game).
Thor 2 1st Day Collection in India is Rs. 7 Crores (approx.)

Total Overseas Collection of Thor 2 is $ 200 Million (approx.)
Thor 2 will be playing in 3,841 North American theaters as of 8 p.m. Thursday, including more than 3,100 3D venues. Overseas, the movie should continue to rack up substantial grosses this weekend, including in China, where it opens Friday. Don’t be surprised if Thor 2’s global gross is well north of $300 million by Sunday. As a way of comparison, the first Thor took in a total of
$449.3 million globally.
