Thor: The Dark World” brought down the hammer this weekend, thundering to No. 1 at the U.S. box office with a estimated $86 million. Disney’s Marvel superhero sequel rode the wave of momentum from last year’s “The Avengers” – as “Iron Man 3” did earlier this year – to the year’s fourth-biggest opening. It didn’t match the U.S. debuts of those two Marvel films, the biggest-ever at $207 million and $174 million respectively, but the $170 million 3D epic blew past the first weekend of the pre-“Avengers” original “Thor.” Also read: ‘August: Osage County’ Review: Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts Go at It. »
