'Thor: Ragnarok' Is Singapore’s No.1 Movie of 2017

Superheroes and sequels dominated the Top 10… what a surprise.

According to data released by Cinematograph Film Exhibitors Association, Thor: Ragnarok was the No.1 movie at the Singapore box-office with a mighty haul of $8.1 million. And clinging to dear life at the bottom of the Top 100 is Unlocked, a spy thriller starring Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom. If you’ve never heard of that movie, don’t worry, not many folks have. But enough people turned up (probably by mistake — kidding… maybe) and paid $198,400 to watch it.

We won't bored you with the all the movies’ earnings, but will highlight  a few keys ones. Jack Neo’s Ah Boys To Men 4 is the top local and Asian movie with $5.05 million, while Jackie Chan’s Kung Fu Yoga is the second best-selling Asian flick with $3.65 million. Elsewhere, Despicable Me 3 took home $5.23 million, making it the highest-grossing animated feature. Not even Pixar’s Coco and Cars 3 were a match against the Minions’ cuteness.

For the record, Star Wars: The Last Jedi ruled the US box-office last year with US$612.1 million, followed by Beauty and the Beast (US$504 mil), Wonder Woman (U$412.5 mil), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (US$389.8 mil), Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (US$341.6 mil),  Spider-Man: Homecoming (US$334.2 mil), IT (US$327.4 mil), Thor: Ragnarok (US$313.7 mil), Despicable Me 3 (US$264.6 mil), and Justice League (US$228.1 mil).

So what other movies did Singaporeans flock to last year? You’ll be surprised that some of your favourite movies aren’t here. (Shoot, where’s The Big Sick?)
