Thor: The Dark World
In its second weekend, "Thor: The Dark World" held onto the top spot with $38.4 million. Domestically, the movie is nearing the $150 million mark with a running total of $147 million. Internationally, it's already crossed the $450 million mark, with a running total of $479.8 million, and has surpassed the entire theatrical run of its predecessor, "Thor," which made $449.3 million. In spite of possible bad word-of-mouth once people actually saw it (our own review called it "the most deeply flawed Marvel movie since 'Iron Man 2' "), 'Thor 2' suffered only a 55% drop in its second weekend (compared to the 58% drop "Iron Man 3" felt from opening to second weekend).

2013 is a year that has largely been defined by unnecessary, after-the-fact sequels that virtually no one asked for and even fewer have shown up to (sorry, "Riddick," we know your heart was in the right place). Maybe the most baffling of these sequels, however, is "The Best Man Holiday," a sequel to 1999's "The Best Man," a movie that people barely remember, let alone cry out for a follow-up from. Still, like some kind of viral outbreak or a coyote in your back yard, "The Best Man Holiday" is here, whether you want it or not, and you just have to deal with it.
