“Thor” Swings His Hammer to a Mighty Marvel $29 Million Preview Thursday


“Thor,” what it it good for?

Answer: $29 million opening in Thursday previews.

The mighty Marvel strikes again. This may be a $130 million weekend.

Yes, the audiences are back in theaters.

And even though “Love and Thunder,” the fourth installment, may not be ‘as good’ as previous chapters, the fans love it and that’s all that matters.

In other but not less important box office news, “Elvis” crossed the $80 million line last night and should comfortably cross $90 million by Sunday night. Suspicious minds thought this would never happen.
