MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide; Tops THE DARK KNIGHT
It may have broken more records in North America this weekend (details on that can be found HERE) but it has just been revealed that Joss Whedon's superhero ensemble has now made OVER $1 billion worldwide!
Almost every day over the past week has seen analyst after analyst predict that Marvel's The Avengers would hit $1 billion by close of business on Sunday. Of course, the far more realistic and conservative estimates had it pegged at making around $950 million, instead crossing the landmark figure by tomorrow or Tuesday. Well, as you can see from the Tweets below (courtesy of one of the most trusted sites when it comes to box office reports) the film has now hit $1,002,100,000 in less than three weeks of release. That puts it at #11 on the list of all-time highest grossing movies, past The Dark Knight and well on its way to a much higher spot.
