The superhero adventure, which stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston, helped push Walt Disney Studios beyond its previous yearly international box office record of $2.302 billion, with just under two weeks left to go in the calendar year.
Director Alan Taylor's Marvel Phase Two sequel was the top movie at the box office in key territories such as France, the UK, Korea, Germany, Spain, Taiwan, Australia, Russia, Mexico, and Brazil. It hasn't opened in Argentina, Italy, China, and Japan yet, but the film is on track to beat Thor's international take of $268.2 million in 2011.
Thor: The Dark World opens in North American theaters November 8. How do you think the Asgardian warrior will fare at the box office this weekend?
