Thor Hammers Down the Box Office Again

Kersmash!!! Thor easily held on to the top spot this weekend with a moderate 50% drop from last. The Hangover-for-women comedy, Bridesmaids, debuted in second place with just above $24 million, more than most analysts predicted, probably due to it's positive word of mouth (90% on rottentomatoes).

As for that other movie that opened in wide release this weekend, Priest, it managed to conjure up about $15 million... which might make it a flop considering it's rumored budget is around $60 million (but we'll see in the weeks to come).
