'Thor' tops 'Daddy's Home 2,' 'Orient Express' at box office

The Marvel superhero blockbuster "Thor: Ragnarok" continued to rule at the North American box office over the weekend, spoiling the debuts of a holiday-themed comedy and a retelling of a classic murder mystery, according to final figures released Monday. The tally, which almost doubles that of the weekend's #2 film, brings the cumulative "Ragnarok" total to $211.6 million.

A reminder that it's that time of year already, the Christmas comedy stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg as Brad and Dusty - who join forces to give their kids the ideal holiday, but have their efforts challenged when their own fathers show up.

Paramount's "Daddy's Home 2", which adds John Lithgow and Mel Gibson to the Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg formula, took second place with $30 million.

Down two places, "A Bad Moms Christmas" grabs #4 with $11.5 million (cume now $39.9 million).

"Thor: Ragnarok" has now grossed $650 million worldwide, which puts it in the 10th place for the highest grossing film of the year.
