THE AVENGERS Passes $260M Overseas; May Have A $160M Opening In North America
The critically acclaimed blockbuster from Joss Whedon and Marvel Studios continues to exceed expectations at the box office and is now on track to hit closer to $600M in total by Sunday rather than the previously predicted $500M!
Just yesterday, we brought you the news that Marvel's The Avengers was expected to reach an impressive worldwide gross of $500 million by Sunday. Well, the latest analysis from Deadline instead estimates a sum closer to $585M after the film is released in North America this Friday (where it's predicted to have a massive $160M opening) as well as in Russia and China. While some slightly more conservative estimates have those figures as being a little lower, the superhero ensemble made a jaw dropping $42.3M overseas yesterday, bringing its total through Tuesday to $260.5M. This impressive figures are sure to have been boosted at least a little through repeat viewing as the film really is something very special indeed.
