The Avengers Shattered Box Office Records


The Avengers is not only the most anticipated movie of 2012, but it also broke box office records beating Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

The movie made a whopping $200.3 million in domestic figures making it the largest debut ever.

World wide figures? A cool $641.8 million.

It surpassed lifetime totals for its prequels Captain America: The First Avenger ($364 million), Thor ($449 million), Iron Man ($585 million) and Iron Man 2 ($624 million).

It is the first film ever to reach $200 million in three days at the domestic box office.

Dave Hollis, Disney executive vp of distribution said, “It’s been a fantastic weekend on every single front.”

Disney has clearly redeemed themselves after John Carter bombed in theatres last March. With Disney citing a loss of $220 million for the not-so-epic movie.

The Avengers was a success for both Disney and Marvel Studios.

The film stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (the Hulk), Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Furry), and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye). Directed by Joss Whedon.
