Superheroes continue to defeat their foes at the box office.

Disney's Thor: The Dark World, earning $86.1 million, dominated the weekend box office as it opened domestically at No. 1, according to studio estimates Sunday. Overall, it has grossed $327 million worldwide.

In limited theaters Thursday evening, Thor: The Dark World brought in $7.1 million overnight.
