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.

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.
