Avengers take in $200.3 MILLION in opening weekend
Avengers is now positioned to reach $1 billion in global grosses in a much-needed win for Disney, which posted a $200 million loss after John Carter cratered at the box office earlier this year. It’s also a validation of Marvel’s strategy to build a franchise by turning out single titles — Iron Man, Thor and Captain America — and then bring the characters together. Avengers also could reboot The Hulk film franchise.
Among other records, Avengers is the first film in history to cross $200 million in only three days of play at the domestic box office. It also scored the biggest Saturday gross of all time in earning $69.7 million.
I had other things planned for the weekend, so I didn’t even attempt to see it, but I feel like I’m the only one that didn’t. If you did see it, what did you think?
