Avengers Breaks Box Office Records
The Avengers has hulk smashed the US box office domestic revenue record with a $200.3 million (£124.2 million) debut. If distributor Disney’s estimates prove to be accurate when the final official weekend numbers are released, Avengers would be the first film to ever take more than $200million in a single weekend.
Marvel’s long waited superhero film has now officially gone well beyond the previous record of just short of $170million set by the debut of the final instalment of the Harry Potter Franchise last year.
Internationally Avengers added a further $151.5 million over the past weekend, help to raise its worldwide total since opening barely a week and half ago to an almost unimaginable $641.8 million.
