The Reel Deal:
The North American box office wasn't the big story this weekend --it was the opening of "Thor: The Dark World" overseas. That movie opened in 36 countries and pulled in nearly $110 million dollars.
   That's big bucks outside the US, and ahead of the first "Thor" movie as well. So with the blockbuster opening this coming weekend here in North America, it looks to be a big one for Marvel Studios and Disney.
