Subj: The Last Box Office Milestones...
Posted: Sun May 27, 2012 at 02:45:06 pm EDT (Viewed 42 times)

This weekend Avengers blew past the $500 million mark domestically. It did so a full 9 days faster than the previous record holder Avatar (and an amazing 22 DAYS faster than Dark Knight). But sadly this means the movie's run up the box office chart is just about over.

Within the next week it will take the #3 spot on both the domestic and worldwide charts (from Dark Knight in the U.S. and the Last Harry Potter movie worldwide).

Beyond that it faces two movies (Avatar and Titanic) that both benefited from re-releases which counted towards their totals (which is crazy in Titanic's case since the re-release took place 15 years later).

Not fair but that's how things are counted. So Avengers will likely have to settle for #3. I don't know about the rest of you but for this Avengers fan it was an awesome ride watching it get there.

(For the record the film will still probably pull in another $100 million domestically and a few hundred million worldwide but that won't be enough to make the difference)
