Transcript for 'Thor: Ragnarok' rakes in $121M opening weekend
But for now how about a little "Pop news." I would love to, robin Roberts. Good morning to you both and good morning to you. We'll begin with movie news. "Thor" hammered the competition this weekend. Single-handedly turning around the fall movie slump with a whopping $121 million at the box office. Whoa! No kidding. But are we surprised? We all saw it. It's fantastic? It is great. Chris was on the show. The gang was here. They brought in the fourth largest opening of 2017 and helped make "Thor: Ragnarok" only the ninth to cross the $100 million mark in the month of November which is notoriously tough. This is an even bigger feat considering this is the slowest box office in October in a decade and "Thor: Ragnarok" brought in more than $300 million overseas. That doesn't even count toward this. You know, guys, I think it was Michael playing him for Halloween that really -- Strahan -- I do believe. I believe. The hair. Only Michael could do. Yes, robin. Also in "Pop news," not sure if you heard about this. This made me smile. SHAWN diddley combs is no more. He now has a new name and before we let him tell you what it is, the man originally known as puff daddy explains the reason why he decided to once again change his name. Here you go. I decided to change my name again. I just -- I'm just not who I am before. I'm something different. So my new name is love, aka brother love. There you have it. Definitely in on the joke. Definitely. He seems like he's in a great mood. No word on where he was. That's an undisclosed location. We do know when he sent that out it was his birthday. He is celebrating. Hopefully he'll remember he changed his name and sent a shoutout to his mom and dad and says he will not answer, by the way to any of his previous names or monikers, write these down, puff, puff daddy, puffy, SHAWN John. P. Diddy. P. Diddy, just plain diddy, king combs, I forgot about that and for one week in 2011 a beautiful week he was swag. Is it love or brother love? It's brother love to you. Brother love. So brother love we say to you from us here at "Good morning America," happy birthday. Happy birthday. And no more diddy. And then finally in "Pop news" this morning, all right, all right, all right. The people of lawrenceburg, Kentucky, will not go without Thanksgiving dinner this year thanks in part to an Oscar winning actor, I bet you can guess who I'm talking about with a very big heart. Mr. Matthew mcconaughey. 4500 frozen Turkeys passed out over the weekend and one of the people doing it was Matthew. Spending his 48th birthday as well doing community service. Meeting the people of the rural Kentucky town. The Oscar winner is the spokesman for wild Turkey distillery and joined 250 other volunteers. Helping the community get ready for the holiday that is coming way too soon. By the way, yeah. No, he was not passing out wild Turkey. Just the Turkey. I'm flat a camera wasn't on George. Did the little head nod, okay. Thank you there, Lara.
