The November release date adds an interesting wrinkle to the box office prospects of Thor: The Dark World
. I think it'll make more than the first movie, but $300 million domestic is likely out of reach. Only two November releases - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
- have made over $300 million domestic to date. This year will probably see a third film join that club, but I think it'll be The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
rather than Thor: TDW
. My guess is that Thor: TDW
will go over $200 million, but not over $250 million.
