Thor: Ragnarok smashed the box office this weekend, setting new records in multiple markets, but perhaps no figure speaks to the volume of Thor: Ragnarok's success as much as its opening weekend in China.

Thor: Ragnarok opened to $55.6 million in China, setting a new November record in the market. It is also more than Thor: The Dark World's lifetime gross in China. The second Thor movie made $55.34 million in the Chinese market.

Thor is burning up the box office around the globe. The film opened to $121 million domestically and has already earned $306 million internationally, bringing its worldwide box office total to $427 million.

China isn't the only territory where Thor: Ragnarok opened big. The film debuted in Mexico with $10.8 million, in Germany with $5.5 million and set another November record in India with $5.2 million.

In Russia, Thor: Ragnarok opened to $3.7 million in limited release and will open wide in the market on Monday.

Thor: Ragnarok is also continuing to perform well in the markets that it opened in last week, dropping an average of just 40 percent. Thor: Ragnarok earned another $27.2 million in the United Kingdom, $25.8 million in South Korea, $19.3 million in Brazil, and $14.9 million in France.

Domestically, Thor: Ragnarok is still only Marvel Studios' second-largest opening of the year, but the film's box office success has made the Marvel Cinematic Universe the first franchise ever to cross $5 billion at the North American box office.
