Previous Post

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)

You are right, it probably will end up third, but that makes me ecstatic!
Highest grossing superhero flick! We did it guys....well maybe not US, but
it feels good. BTW the film now is #1 in 37 categories. To agree with you
it was a blast seeing it get there so fast. Box office mojo is predicting
it to pass THE DARK KNIGHT by this coming Friday. Do y'all know what makes
this soooo amazing?

As I said in an earlier post, TDK had an extremely long time in the theaters. Turns out it was longer than I thought y'all! It stayed in the
theaters(obviously by then in a lot fewer)for a total of 231 days. So, it
boils down to this....if bom.com is right THE AVENGERS will gross in 28
days what TDK did in 231.

The next question is how long will it be third... a lot of Batman fans are sure TDKR is going to knock off THE AVENGERS. Do y'all agree? I sincerely hope it doesn't! I relished my watching the box office progress and seeing it knock off all of TDK's fastest to records one by
one and now as you said Avatar's fastest to $500 mil has been grabbed

For completists here are the #1's THE AVENGERS owns: Top movie in last
365 days,opening weeks, Single Day Saturday gross, single day Sunday
gross,Theater averages(wide releases)all-time, Theater averages wide opening weekends, summer starts, opening weekends,opening weekends-may,

Quite a list huh?

take care y'all and have a nice and safe memorial day.
