MONDAY UPDATE: Avengers brought in even more than estimated. $207.4 Million!
While sitting in the theater waiting for the movie to start, my Mom leaned over to me and asked why they would make a movie with all these characters in it. I pointed out the sold out theater. She understood. And after leaving we walked out of the theater and saw the lines wrapped around the building. And I wondered just how big this movie would get.
$200.3 Million big.
The Avengers passed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 to become the biggest opening weekend movie of all time. And combining what it has made overseas, the total take for The Avengers in just its 12 full days of release (its been playing overseas for a couple weeks) is $641.8 Million.
With people seeing this multiple times, the question is just how much more will it make? Will it hold #1 next weekend when Dark Shadows comes out? Will it slow down? Or continue to dominate? I know I plan to see it again sometime this week.
