To say that The Avengers kicked box office’s a$$ this weekend would be an understatement because the movie did so well it broke a bunch of records. The Marvel Comics movie grossed $200.3 million domestically. That makes it the highest debut for any movie in the US and it doesn’t stop there. It was also the fastest movie to make $200 million, it took only three days to reach that goal. While on Friday, it was only able to say it was the second highest money maker on a Friday, but on Saturday it took that day’s title with $69.7.
Is anyone shocked that the movie that brought Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Loki and Black Widow together did so well? I think the only movie that could top it would be if DC Comics did a movie with Spider-Man, Batman, Wonder Woman, Robin, Cat Woman and Superman together for a flick.
Now that The Avengers had a good weekend, will it be able to top James Cameron’s Avatar and Titanic for the biggest grossing movie ever in the US? I am hoping it does, so let’s all go see it again so that it can take that title.
BTW Joss Whedon is having a very good year between this movie and Cabin in the Woods. Maybe now Hollywood will let him do whatever he wants. Do I hear Buffy, Angel or Firefly in his future???
