The Avengers was number one at the box office for a third weekend in a row, beating out the domestic opening of Battleship!
The Avengers is still going strong, taking in $55 million domestically and $56 million outside the US this weekend to bring its worldwide total box office to $1.18 billion dollars. After three weeks open in the U.S., Marvel's The Avengers is now the fourth highest grossing movie of all time worldwide, with only Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Titanic, and Avatar ahead of it.
Comic fans, it is your responsibility to keep the Avengers going. Go and see it again, and again, and again, or live with the fact that a kids movie, a chick flick, and a furry fetish film have all beat the best the comic book world has to offer.
Battleship, a movie based on a stupid board game, had a fairly abysmal debut, taking in only $25 million domestically, though the movie, which has been open overseas for five weeks, has made a total of $215 million dollars worldwide, proving once and for all that Americans are smarter than the rest of the world.*
The numbers are industry estimates, with final numbers to be released Monday morning.
*This is actually not true, Americans made this movie, so the shame is ours.
