Meanwhile, the James Franco spoof The Disaster Artist shot up to fourth place by expanding to several hundred theaters. It made $6,4 million this weekend, a total of about $8 million. Thor: Ragnarok rounds out the top five with $6,3 million, a domestic total of over $300 million which combined with over $530 million abroad to put the Norse god in the vicinity of $833 million total cume.
