Two big sequels debut in November 2017.

"Thor: Ragnarok" features a Thor/Hulk crossover, as well as the pantheon of Asgard. As part of the Marvel Universe, it is getting heavy cross promotion on Disney owned properties. It has the advantage of debuting two weeks before Justice League.

Time Warner/DC hopes "Justice League" will do for them what "The Avengers" did for Disney/Marvel, establish a benchmark for DC character movies and spawn billion dollar sequels. It is getting heavy promotion on Time Warner media outlets, including their 10 DC related TV shows, and has momentum from the surprising summer success of "Wonder Woman".

The question for the poll is: At the end of December, which film that debuted in November will have the biggest box office?

I voted for Justice League.

But honestly, I have no idea.

It's all gonna come down to how well received Justice League is. If it's another turd like Batman v. Superman, then Thor will end up beating it. But since Joss Whedon is finishing up Justice League in place of Zack Snyder, I'm guessing people will like it more...

Thor 3 has already screened for critics and word of mouth is positive, as it usually is for Marvel movies.

My guess is JL as well, simply for the "All Star" line-up. However, the TV cross-over seems really thick for the DC properties, with some of their "premium" characters already on regular TV shows. I don't know if this will serve them well in the long run.

I have been impressed with how long Marvel has been able to hold off on the production of cheap knock-off sequels promoted as quality goods. There is tremendous pressure from the bean counters to cut costs and just get anything with the brand out there to generate short term profits. So far, it has only turned into a few animated series.

The last two DC movies made a lot more money than the last two Thor movies. That is unlikely to change this fall.

Is Justice League a bunch of lawyers or a bunch of light saber wielding mutants who try to right wrongs?
Its its mutant turtles with a high sense of right and wrong I don't think it makes any difference which show makes more money, none of it will be deserved.

Thor Ragnarok cam out with a $122m domestic opening weekend. The previous two movies started with $86 million and $66 domestic

Worldwide Ragnarok took in $427 million in three days, almost exceeding the $449 million the original Thor earned in it's entire run in 2011.

So now we have the overnight success for a director as Taika Waititi from New Zealand follows up his three tiny films with a world wide blockbuster that seems certain to be a billion dollar movie.



Worldwide revenue:
Thor: Ragnarok BV $427.0 million
What We Do in the Shadows U/P $6.3 million
Hunt for the Wilderpeople Orch. $5.2 million
Eagle Vs. Shark Mira. $1.3 million

I enjoyed "Hunt for the Wilderpeople".

Thor: Ragnarok was great. Highly entertaining, and funny like the two Guardians of the Galaxy movies have been.

It may end up beating Justice League.

Justice League screened for critics last week, but they're prohibited from publishing their reviews so I have no idea if the early word is positive or negative.

Warner Bros. isn't letting critics publish their Justice League reviews until Wednesday 11/15. The movie opens 11/16 at 6pm.

That is not a good sign.

That's good to know. I can hardly wait three or four years until it's on basic cable :)

$129,228,886 Spider Man Homecoming on day 4
$130,992,650 Thor: Ragnarok on day 4
$132,164,898 "It" on day 4

You haven't seen Spider Man or "It" either, so in three or four years you should have some good movies to watch
