NEW YORK, N.Y. - "Thor: The Dark World" continued its box-office reign with $38.5 million in its second week, holding off "The Best Man Holiday," according to studio estimates Sunday.

Opening nearly 15 years after the original "The Best Man," ''The Best Man Holiday" opened strongly with $30.6 million. The Universal film, which drew an overwhelmingly female and African-American audience, was an unlikely challenger for Disney's "Thor."

But Marvel's Norse god has hammered audiences around the globe. It has now made $479.8 million worldwide, already besting the original "Thor."

The box-office window will soon close for "Thor," though. Opening Friday is "Hunger Games: Catching Fire," which is expected to be one of the year's biggest debuts.
