Box Office Top 20: 'Thor: Ragnarok' repeats at No. 1

By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Thor: Ragnarok" topped the box office again in its second weekend, adding $57.1 million from North American theaters. The superhero sequel, the third in the franchise, has grossed $212.1 million domestically to date.

It beat out newcomers like the comedy sequel "Daddy's Home 2," which opened in second with a solid $29.7 million, and Kenneth Branagh's lush adaptation of Agatha Christie's "Murder on the Orient Express," which debuted in third with $28.7 million.

In fourth place was "A Bad Moms Christmas" with $11.5 million that bumps up its domestic total to $39.8 million, and in fifth was the horror pic "Jigsaw," in its third week in theaters, which took in $3.4 million.

Among smaller releases, the coming-of-age pic "Lady Bird" cracked the top 10 in its expansion to only 37 theaters. The Greta Gerwig-directed film earned $1.2 million.
