The movie has become the fastest to reach the $200 million mark domestically in three days.

"The Avengers," which received an A+ CinemaScore, will cross the $600 million global box office today after just 12 days of release! The film added another $151.5 million this weekend internationally and has reached $441.5 million overseas from 52 territories. The movie's estimated global total after today is $641.8 million!

The global box office for "The Avengers" has already surpassed the global box office totals of Captain America: The First Avengers ($364 million), Thor ($449 million), Iron Man ($585 million) and Iron Man 2 ($624 million).

"The Avengers" has also surpassed the international box office totals of Captain America: The First Avenger ($192 million), Iron Man ($266.7 million), Thor ($268.3 million) and Iron Man 2 ($311.5 million). The film had the biggest opening weekend of all time in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, Central America, Peru, Bolivia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines. In Russia, the film earned $17.9 million.

I'd go see it with you if there was not a state between us.


Too bad my daughter is just a tad too young otherwise I'd take the whole family. :(

Now that I think about it, I should have invited Victorian Squid up for the weekend. I think we would have had a blast seeing it together.

That would have been fun! :-D

This weekend would have been unpossible, though, because I've been house and pet-sitting. I am considering going this afternoon after all, but chances are I'll wait a little longer and maybe see it during the week if I get the chance.

If I didn't have an paper to write I'd be watching again it right now. :x
This is the first movie in a loooong time that I wanted to see a second time in the theaters.

Maybe if I finish this paper (and another project due Wed) by tomorrow I'll go on Tues.

Yep, not going today because people want to see it in IMAX and I just want to see it in 2D really. All the talk of The Avengers and not much talk about whether it's worth it to see it in IMAX format or not. I guess most people want the full 3D experience?

3D was the best I've seen. I've not seen much in 3D, though because I've had a few bad experiences with it.

Thanks for the report, I saw two movies only in 3D and I didn't think it enhanced either of them and in fact made some of the images muddy. But one was definitely just a conversion job (Star Wars). Both those times were at the behest of the people I saw them with, and I didn't really feel like I got much out of the 3D angle. This time, I figure I could see it both ways if I want to but I may as well see it in 2D first because I am inclined to. Also I don't know the full group of people going to see it in 3D later today, so I don't really feel like I have to go to make any one person happy.
