After four weeks of domestic dominance, Marvel's The Avengers
has finally been dethroned by the debuting Men In Black 3
Men In Black 3
opened up this weekend to an estimated $55 million, knocking The Avengers
of the top of the box office charts for the first time. After setting a new record Saturday for shortest time to reach $500 million domestically (23 days) and having the second highest fourth weekend gross of all time, Avengers
pulled in an estimated $37 million dollars this weekend, bringing its total domestic gross up to $513 million. The movie is expected to overtake The Dark Knight
($533 million) by next weekend, becoming the third highest domestic grossing movie of all time. Worldwide, Avengers
sits at $1.29 billion dollars, and is in place to become the third highest grossing movie internationally by defeating Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
($1.32 billion) soon.
However, the chances that The Avengers
will overtake James Cameron's vagina-fueled masterpieces Titanic
are now looking pretty slim, unless, of course, Marvel is willing to take drastic action and generate new interest in the movie, perhaps by making shocking changes to one of the characters' sexuality. Unfortunately, the comic book industry is not known for taking those kinds of risks.
