Thor Tops Weekend Box Office, Fast Five Still Impressive

Thor had a strong weekend taking the top box office spot ending May 8 with a total domestic haul of $66 million.

Also still showing life was week two contender Fast Five which managed to pull in another $35 million, bringing the movies international haul to more than $200 million.

Third place for the weekend went to Jumping the Broom with $13.5 million, followed by Something Borrowed with $13.4 million.

The animated feature Rio also remained strong, taking in $9.5 million after 4-weeks in wide releasing, bringing the movies total haul to $116.2 million and giving Rio the fifth best grossing spot after a month in theaters.

Box office takes should start to take off in the coming weeks as the Spring/Summer Blockbuster season begins and students are no longer stuck in classes all day.

I personally saw Fast Five and Thor this weekend and in my opinion they both deserved big box office draws.
