Thor: Love and Thunder took a $15.7 million opening day haul from its first batch of overseas markets yesterday, opening across 17 territories including Germany, Italy, Australia, and South Korea. Disney estimates the opening day results across those markets fall 39% ahead of Thor: Ragnarok and 24% below Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Disney reports that several key markets are reporting a market share above 50% and as high as 86% for the film. Preview figures, which are not included in the $15.7 million figure cited by the studio, also indicate a strong overseas opening weekend. Mexico is leading all territories in preview grosses with $1.9 million, followed by $1.4 million in Brazil and contributing to a total of $5.4 million in preview grosses for the entire Latin America region. The preview grosses alone were enough to make Thor: Love and Thunder as the top grossing film in Latin America on Wednesday, including in Brazil and Mexico. The 3D format is enjoying significant success across Latin America, with a 50% market share to date in Argentina and 41% market share in Brazil.

Thor: Love and Thunder will expand to additional overseas markets through the weekend. The film will enjoy its official opening day in the UK, Brazil, Mexico, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Portugal, UAE, India, New Zealand, Singapore, Vietnam, Argentina, and the rest of Latin America on Thursday. The only major markets that will not debut by this weekend are China, France, and Russia.
