0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Were you one of the lucky ones who got to see Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Loki this weekend?  If so, you were part of a blockbuster weekend!  The Walt Disney Studios announced today that Marvel’s The Avengers posted an estimated $200.3 million in its domestic debut May 4-6, shattering previous records and positioning the film as the highest-grossing domestic debut of all time. The film’s cumulative global box office gross is an estimated $641.8 million over 12 days in release.  Not too shabby for some comic book characters.

In just three days, Marvel’s the Avengers is the fastest movie to reach $200 million domestically. The domestic debut kicked off Friday, May 4 and marks the second highest single day take of all time at $80.5 million. Saturday’s box office gross of $69.7 million is the highest Saturday take of all time. Moviegoers gave Marvel’s The Avengers a rare and perfect A+ CinemaScore.

The film’s success comes a month after Marvel and Disney announced that a sequel to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger will be released April 4, 2014. A sequel to last summer’s Thor is scheduled for release November 15, 2013, and the third installment of the hit Iron Man series, which has earned over $1.2 billion worldwide, will arrive in theaters May 3, 2013.  Less than a year for some more Robert Downey, Jr.  I can’t wait. :)

    • Haha! Hey, at least you’re honest!! :)

      • Yea, sometimes too honest. But seriously, I never have any desire to see anything that’s popular at the box office. I’m not a big action or thriller person. And I certainly don’t think I’m superior or anything. Hell, I wish I wanted to see those movies so I didn’t feel so different. lol I like my quirky, funny indie films. Yea, I’m weird. Hey, we like what we like. :)
