Marvel's The Avengers picked up another $20 million in box office revenue this weekend and became the third highest grossing movie of all time.
According to estimates, The Avengers has made $1.35 billion dollars worldwide, beating Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 for the number three spot on the worldwide chart, and $552 million domestically, beating out the Dark Knight for the number three spot on that chart. On both charts, The Avengers trails Titanic and Avatar respectively, and while Avatar has just a $200 million lead domestically, The Avengers would need to double its current total gross to take the top spot worldwide. As it stands, the movie is unlikely to move past the number three spot for now, which is pretty damn good, as long as you don't consider how bad the top two movies are.
The Amazing Spider-Man will be the next big comic movie to hit theaters on July 3rd, and to respond preemptively: no, commenters on this article, this reporter does not give a shit about Prometheus.
