Whatever floats your boat, Australia!
Fast Five and Thor have already opened in Australia, and very surprisingly audiences flocked to the fifth Fast film EVEN more than Thor!
By day two of release, Thor had made $1.5 million US, whereas Fast Five made $2.02 million US! Ouch!
Here are some reasons why this is kind of painful/unfortunate/embarrassing for Thor:
- Thor was released in 3D, yet the higher ticket prices still couldn't pull the film ahead of Fast Five
- The lead actor in Thor, Chris Hemsworth, is Australian
- Fast Five is #5 in its franchise, whereas Thor is a fresh, original, brand new film/franchise
Guess we'll see where America's priorities lie when the films are released over the next few weeks.
What would U prefer to see? Fast Five or Thor?
