Jigsaw Carves Out $16 Million Opening While Thor: Ragnarok Earns $107 Million Overseas

The box office numbers are in for the weekend, and both Jigsaw and Suburbicon bombed. Jigsaw didn't bomb quite as hard as Suburbicon, taking in $16.2 million dollars according to a press release from ComScore and topping the domestic charts. It was, however, the second lowest opening of the Saw franchise and below expectations. Suburbicon, a comedy directed by George Clooney, made just $2.8 million.

The dismal performance may just be the calm before the storm, however. And no, we're not talking about Donald Trump leading the country to nuclear war with North Korea, although if we're being honest, that's always an option. What we mean is that Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters in the U.S. next weekend.

Positive word of mouth have Thor tracking for a more than $100 million opening, and that will be adding to an international total of $107 million racked up this weekend. And on November 17, just as Thor is beginning to wind down, Justice League, also tracking for more than $100 million, will hit theaters. And that's not even mentioning Star Wars: The Last Jedi, out in December.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
