The event: ”Help Haiti Home,” staged by Sean Penn & Friends and presented at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills by Giorgio Armani to benefit the J/P Haitian Relief Organization. Anderson Cooper served as host and ceremonies ended with a surprise performance by U2. The scene: Held on Golden Globes weekend, the affair Saturday brought out a generous helping of A-listers, some of whom bid generously enough at the live auction to bring the gala's proceeds to a whopping $6 million.

The numbers were thrown around soon after “Thor: The Dark World” premiered: fourth-best opening of the year, ninth-best November opening ever, etc. On one level, the $86.1 million for the Chris Hemsworth thunderousness isn't exactly surprising: Superhero sequels make bank. It's more surprising these days when a film in this vein doesn't work. And the opening was lower than the $90 million-$100 million some expected (and a planet away from the $170 million-plus of "Iron Man 3" earlier this year)

With its god of thunder "Thor" lighting up the box office this weekend, Marvel has struck again at the multiplex. The 3-D sequel "Thor: The Dark World" debuted with a healthy $86 million, according to an estimate from Marvel distributor Walt Disney Studios. That's the fourth-highest opening of the year, but well behind another Marvel property, "Iron Man 3," whose $174-million debut is still the biggest of 2013. Heading into the weekend, prerelease audience surveys suggested the comic book adaptation would debut with a minimum of $90 million -- and given strong early interest, even a $100-million launch didn't appear impossible.

It may be November, but it's a summer-ready superhero who reigns at the box office this weekend. To the surprise of no one, "Thor: The Dark World" earned big numbers on its opening night, taking in more than $31 million, according to estimates. The 3-D sequel, which again stars Chris Hemsworth as the god of thunder, earned less-than-enthusiastic reviews from the critics apart from Hemsworth's costar Tom Hiddleston, who again portrays Thor's stepbrother Loki. Nevertheless, audiences came out in droves to the latest film from the Marvel universe, and now the only question seems to be whether the film can finish its opening weekend over the $100-million mark, a figure that remains a possibility.

If anyone ever asks you what "Thor: The Dark World" has in common with "Blondie Goes Latin" and "Bomba and the Jungle Girl," here's the answer: It's the eighth movie in its franchise. The Marvel Cinematic Universe, as "Thor's" particular franchise is known, encompasses the new adventures of Iron Man, the Hulk, Captain America and so on, worth billions around the world. (Rumor has it the next all-star "Avengers" movie will be two hours of actors in costume, counting their money.) So how's this "Thor" sequel?
