THE AVENGERS Adds $103 Million To Its Gross From Home Media Sale During First Five Days

This box office juggernaut is not slowing down on home media market either. The Joss Whedon-helmed superhero ensemble The Avengers has made over $100 million on Blu-ray and DVD during its first five days...


Yes, we knew that The Avengers was going to do big business on Blu-ray and DVD. Still, the numbers have arrived, and they are big. The home media market is not what it used to be, though that shouldn't be a problem for Joss Whedon & Marvel's superhero team-up of a lifetime. The Avengers was released on September 25th in US, and during its first five days (Sep. 25 - Sep. 30), the film managed to make around $103 million. Of course, the Blu-ray sale played a major part in this. According to The Numbers, it sold 3,389,726 units which equals to $67.6 million. Plus, it sold 2,086,751 DVD units ($35.4 million).

Quite something, huh? And this is just the first week. Have you picked up your copy yet? Anyway, now that The Avengers have finally assembled, Marvel Studios is gearing up for Iron Man 3, followed by Thor: The Dark World.

Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”--the super hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

Starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, & directed by Joss Whedon from a screenplay by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble on May 4, 2012. The film is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. In addition to "Marvel's The Avengers," Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including "Iron Man 3" on May 3, 2013; and “Thor 2” on November 8, 2013.

i've spent too much on the avengers already,i've got the steelbook copy from hmv & a u.s import copy which was uncut,audio commentary,second screen & a 15 minute arse kissing segment.

not that much better than the uk release,if i actually want to see a feature length making of i probably have to buy the sainsbury edition on wait for the tesseract brief case collection.

@YoDawg - if you think that comment was bad, you should check out the rabid, intense hatred for tdkr and nolan in general. just search for "nolan" or "tdkr" in the search box. vile, poisonous stuff by the truckloads :)
TheAbomination - 10/12/2012, 7:33 PM

-iron man underwater,flying through city then takes of armour in a cool way at stark tower.

-heli-carrier takes off.

-hawkeye takes out some guards loki gets himself an eye.

-loki vs cap,iron man & widow in a quinjet.

-thor lands on quinjet takes loki from the back of it.

I got mine! :)
Tymminator - 10/12/2012, 7:59 PM
Awesome movie. I'm far more pleased with the MCU than I am of the new Marvel NOW direction.
Danbojohnj - 10/12/2012, 8:02 PM
@Squaremaster lol,I thought it was Transformers 3 all over again.And bugger all happened for the first half hour,then Ironman fixed a big fan for another half hour,Hulk smashed for about 5 minutes took all suspense away when he just punched that big snake /dragon thingy and killed it with one blow.
3/5
Dredd was better.
Maximus101 - 10/12/2012, 8:02 PM
I paid $10 for mine lol I didn't want to waste 25-30 bucks for this movie. I really hope you have not seen this movie 15 times, that's a person with no life indeed.

@sagemode you best hope phase two is good cause all you shit talking won't mean much if it is not good lol

phase one was ok, iron man was amazing and the incredible hulk was awesome, the avengers was decent, captain America was terrible and Thor was meh. That's just me though.

At all the Avenger Haters:

nikgrid - 10/12/2012, 8:19 PM
It was ok, better on the second viewing. Haven't bought the Bu-ray yet.
FrozenJoy - 10/12/2012, 8:41 PM
@thewonderer, maxi, and all you Nolanites
The Avengers is THE THIRD HIGHEST GROSSING FILM OF ALL TIME. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.
FrozenJoy - 10/12/2012, 8:43 PM
I bought the 3D blu-ray combo pact, as you can see in my avatar. So far, I've seen it 30 times of home entertainment.
FrozenJoy - 10/12/2012, 8:45 PM
Though, it's not as many times as I've seen it in the theaters, which was 63 times.
LFANCH - 10/12/2012, 8:49 PM
If every dollar Avengers made was a hot lady, they would of had to title it LFANCH. for copyright reasons.

@AvengerFan2012

Do you like Titanic and Avatar?
95 - 10/12/2012, 8:51 PM
Bought it on the first day. Seen it twice a day since. On a 16:9 LED panel, it looks absolutely magnificent. The commentary is brilliant stuff. Put your box office gross betting bias aside, it's a super awesome movie.
FrozenJoy - 10/12/2012, 8:51 PM
Titanic is just ok. Avatar had great graphics.
