Everyone knew that The Avengers will be big at the box office. Well, almost everyone. But no one knew it would be this big. It's a monster going towards every single film for the last three weeks and crushing them with ease. Rival studios are going crazy because the Joss Whedon-directed film became a four-quadrant movie and it received a rare A+ CinemaScore. Men In Black 3 might take the #1 spot this weekend, but one thig is for sure: The Avengers will break $500M mark by Monday. Today, the film has officially topped Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, and became fourth highest-grossing film of all time in US.
Above is the updated list of records The Avengers currently holds, and it will probably break a couple of more. It will be interesting to see where will the film stop, but as of now, it has made $1,228,700,000 at the global box office.
