Weekend Report, November 11, 2013

Young Ender Wiggin was forced to step aside for a superhero who is all grown up. Thor: The Dark World hammered its way to $86.1M for its opening weekend, proving that the Avengers brand is alive and well (not that there was much doubt). After Thor, there was nearly a three-way tie for second, with Ender's Game coming in fifth. While this is the season for prestige releases, Thor reminds us that there are still some major  2013blockbusters yet to come (cue that little Hunger Games whistle).
