‘The Avengers’ Banks $200M Opening Weekend

Well they said this was going to be THEE blockbuster of the summer!

Hollywood’s superhero summer has arrived with a vengeance. The Marvel Comics mash-up “The Avengers” launched the summer movie season with a $200.3 million opening weekend domestically, by far the biggest debut ever. If distributor Disney’s revenue estimate Sunday holds when the final weekend count is released Monday, “The Avengers” would be the first movie ever to haul in $200 million in a single weekend.

A $200 million total for every movie in release is considered a great weekend for the business as a whole, so “The Avengers” redefines the standards for a blockbuster debut. “The Avengers” shot past the previous record of $169.2 million for the debut of last year’s “Harry Potter” finale. With $441.5 million overseas since last week, “The Avengers” worldwide total climbed to $641.8 million.

“The Avengers” dominated the US box office this weekend, with the second highest-grossing movie, “The Lucky One,” only earning $5.5 million.

Damn, what happened to “Think Like a Man”???
