Box Office Mojo reports that Men in Black 3 added an impressive $78.6M this weekend to bring its international gross to $274.6M. After earning another $29.3M domestically ($112.3M in total) the worldwide total for the threequel currently sits at $386.9M. Snow White and the Huntsman has debuted to an estimated $39.3M in 45 markets and $56.255M domestically. That makes a total of $95.555M; a good start for the darker take on the well-known fairy tale. It has yet to open in Australia, France, Italy, Japan and Russia. Meanwhile, Prometheus held off stiff competition from both of these films, opening up at #1 in 14 of the 15 countries it was released in for an estimated weekend gross of $35M. After we reported its strong opening in the UK yesterday, it has now been confirmed that it had an overall debut of $9.99M. Finally, Marvel's The Avengers added £12.4M to its current overseas gross and has now become only the fifth movie ever to earn more than $800 million overseas. It also has the #3 spot on the list of all-time highest grossing movies and should pass $1.4 billion before opening in Japan this August. Domestically, the superhero ensemble made $20.3M domestically (taking its total to $552.7M).

It's a shame the avengers couldn't take the #1 spot. Still the movie was amazing, and it made much more than marvel studios ever excpected. Kevin Feige (however you spell it) said in an interview he was just hoping it exceeded Iron Man II's opening weekend. :D

I can't wait for the avengers II.

CaptainObvious - 6/3/2012, 4:26 PM
It's only a matter of time until somebody posts Prometheus spoilers here.
marvel72 - 6/3/2012, 4:26 PM
not bothered that the avengers isn't number one anymore,its been there done that.

its the highest grossing comic book movie & the third highest grossing film of all time.

its broken loads of records,lets just see how much more money it can make now.
CoolantTech - 6/3/2012, 4:27 PM
congrats to Avengers, a little suprised about MIB though, it made more than expected, and Prometheus might beat everything except Avengers.. I hope it does at least
P862010 - 6/3/2012, 4:35 PM
@Grif how did swath do poorly

it was tracking for a 40 million opening and now it opened close to 60 million
sonofsamadams - 6/3/2012, 4:35 PM
@Thewonderer

Totally agree with you man

Whenever I see people on this sight goin nuts over the Avengers not being # 1 it makes me wanna gouge out my own eyes. Its stupid.

The general audience has already seen the Avengers; they've moved on. I guess some CBM fans wont
Darkhawk8 - 6/3/2012, 4:40 PM
i just want to Avengers to make 600 million. its a nice number.. lol
@sonofsamadams lol don't exaggerate. if people love a movie and are willing to watch it over over then so be it.
Sanderman - 6/3/2012, 4:46 PM
Damn why does Japan get it so late?
BooYah - 6/3/2012, 5:03 PM
I need to get my ass to a theatre to see MIB 3.
DoomXfactor - 6/3/2012, 5:06 PM
@Darkhawk8- Well said man.

@sonofsamadam- People haven't moved on from Avengers. Get used to it. Make sure your Avatar pic is of you when you gouge out your eyes

MAKE MONEY MONEY MAKE MONEY MONEY

I've got a friend over in Japan that's going nuts to see The Avengers still :D

I really wanted to see the midnight show of Prometheus, but I've been home dying of allergies and asthma for like three weeks now. Missing my movies and exercise dammit!!

I'd like to catch MiB III, I think I'm the only person that liked both 1 and 2 equally.

The only way The Avengers will pass Titanic for the #2 spot,is if they re-release it at the theatres next year before Iron Man 3 comes out.Avatar & Titanic were both re-released in theatres,which helped them make even more money.So I think that's what Marvel should do for The Avengers,and it will get people hyped up even more for Iron Man 3 & Thor 2.I know I was hyped after watching it,because I said to myself...I want another Hulk movie now!!!
pro346 - 6/3/2012, 5:31 PM
In 10 years time when the avengers is rereleased I can't see it making much money.....as good as it is its just not going to be a future classic.
DoomXfactor - 6/3/2012, 5:34 PM
@pro346- ahahahaha! that's a good joke man
marvel72 - 6/3/2012, 5:34 PM
@ thewonderer

you've seen the avengers five times in 31 days of release,maybe thats why you're sick of it,you've watched it too much.

i've seen it once at the cinema & once on download probably won't watch it again until the blu-ray release.
BlueDemon - 6/3/2012, 5:35 PM
pro346-
Avengers has a lot of iconic scenes. It will be a classic
DoomXfactor - 6/3/2012, 5:37 PM
@pro346- It's already a classic
pro346 - 6/3/2012, 5:38 PM
In 20 years time are people going to be talking about the first avengers movie....I don't think so.
Darkhawk8 - 6/3/2012, 5:43 PM
@pro346 just because YOU don't think it will be that doesn't mean it will happen. What do you justify as a classic? just out of curiosity.
pro346 - 6/3/2012, 5:43 PM
I'm not saying its a bad movie, I thought it was great.
DoomXfactor - 6/3/2012, 5:44 PM
@pro346- You have a point nostradamus
Darkhawk8 - 6/3/2012, 5:48 PM
@thewonderer You are talking about two totally different generations. Young teens that are growing up now dont care about indy and Back to the future. This new generation of CBM's will be what those movies are to you.
DoomXfactor - 6/3/2012, 5:48 PM
@thewonderer and pro346-
It's one of the first Superhero team up movies. It's making record breaking money. The entire movie is full of memorable scenes
pro346 - 6/3/2012, 5:49 PM
Classics: Indiana Jones,alien/aliens, t1/t2,star wars originals,2001,lotr, the matrix just because the avengers made big $$$ doesn't make it a classic all them movies I named have something unique about them.
pro346 - 6/3/2012, 5:50 PM
@doomxfactor x men doesn't count huh?
BlueDemon - 6/3/2012, 5:50 PM
@thewonderer& pro346
NOLANITES!!!
pro346 - 6/3/2012, 5:53 PM
@tinieblas nolanite you must be joking....I don't care about that sort of thing
PiscinaMuerta - 6/3/2012, 5:54 PM
@pro346 The X-Men don't each have their own individual franchises.
DoomXfactor - 6/3/2012, 5:56 PM
@pro346- LOL i guess X-men counts. Avengers will be bunched up with those movies. You'll see nostradamus
Coloso - 6/3/2012, 5:56 PM
@thewonderer you've watched it five times and it now doesn't hold up? Lol, nice try...

Let's not kid ourselves, you never wanted this film to do good and grudgingly give it's due with a 'but' attached.

And as for @pro346 its a classic already, deal with it. In 20 years people will be talking about how it blazed the trail for superhero teamups and how JLA was possible because of Avengers. Marvel made history with its shared universe blueprint, Hollywood has taken notice.
Darkhawk8 - 6/3/2012, 5:56 PM
@pro346 i will give you SOME Indy flicks, T2, Star Wars and the Matrix. So there was nothing unique about Avengers? Some of the most historic marvel characters come together after having solo movies and make a film we have been waiting for?
pro346 - 6/3/2012, 5:57 PM
If people are judging movies on how much they make at the box office avatar and titanic must be better films.....so avatar must be twice as good as avengers haha.
BlueDemon - 6/3/2012, 5:59 PM
@pro346- Intruder just burned you
GodzillaKart - 6/3/2012, 6:01 PM
@TheWonderer: Dude, I was with you until your last comment. Avengers and Marvel's comic book cinematic universe IS close to on par with Star Wars and IJ, and has far exceeded Nolan's Bat movies. BB was OK, but doesn't hold up. TDK was awesome, and the buzz for TDKR is kinda weak. Time will tell if it lives up to its predecessor.
pro346 - 6/3/2012, 6:02 PM
@tinieblas what?
