By Odins Beard, Thor Readies For Box Office Competition

During its fourth weekend in the box office, Thor suffered modest declines earning another $12 million during the Memorial Day holiday, good enough for 5th place. The current domestic total of $162 million continues to increase toward a hopeful $180-190 million. Thor's worldwide total of $411 million is already impressive when compared to the Incredible Hulks total worldwide take of just $268 million - though I am guessing Hulk sold more "Hulk Hands" than Thor has sold rubber hammers. This Friday, fellow Marvel heroes in X-Men: First Class may inflict some damage on Thor's box office legs as they two films cater to similar audiences. It remains to be seen which of the two films will end up with the bigger opening weekend total. Tune in next week once the dust settles to fins out.
