MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS Set For A Shock Weekend Record Of $200.3M Domestically
We've been bringing you the latest box office figures for Marvel's The Avengers ever since it opened internationally on April 25th. The past few days have seen predictions for its opening weekend in the US rise from $150 million to a now guaranteed record shattering $200 million! Read on for details.
Deadline confirms that Disney and Marvel Studios made a record $69.7M at the North American box office yesterday after earning an impressive $80.5M on Friday. While official figures aren't set to be released until a little later today, Joss Whedon's superhero ensemble is currently on track to add upwards of $49M to that total, making a final sum of $200M a guarantee (we'll be sure to update you when those figures come through later today or tomorrow). Basically, The Avengers has managed to do what Voldermort failed to acheieve across eight films; they have crushed Harry Potter, smashing the previous record held by The Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($169M) with ease. Sources also indicate that the worldwide total now stands at $640+M and other analysts (see below) are confirming a domestic gross of $200.3M in total.
