Known as the god of thunder, Chris Hemsworth's Thor stayed true to its name and stormed to the top of the Australian box office in its debut weekend.

The Aussie actor reprised his Marvel superhero role in the sequel Thor: The Dark World, which generated $7.209 million at the Australian box office on the weekend, according to the Motion Picture Distributors Association of Australia.

Captain Phillips fell one place into a distant second with $1.468 million, while Gravity and About Time also dropped a spot to third and fourth respectively.

Lee Daniels' The Butler, which has been receiving Oscar buzz of late, opened in fifth place, while another new entry, Bollywood superhero film Krrish 3, claimed the No.8 spot.

Hugh Jackman's thriller Prisoners fell two spots to sixth, as did Mark Wahlberg's action flick 2 Guns, which dropped from fifth to seventh spot.

Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2, the only PG offering in the Top 10, fell three places to ninth, while Hemsworth bookended the box office, with another of his films, the Formula One movie Rush, coming in at No.10.
