Superhero movie “The Avengers” has shattered several records.
The film made $200.3 million in its opening weekend in the U.S. alone. It opened in 4,300 theaters, and had actually only been projected to make $172.5 million for its opening weekend.
“The Avengers” have now surpassed the previous record of best opening weekend, which was set in July 2011 by “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,” which brought in $168 million.
The movie also now has the second-highest one-day domestic total, making $80.5 million on Friday only.
Also, including international ticket sales since opening on April 25, the film has made $641.8 million in only 12 days.
Prior to “The Avengers” release, “The Hunger Games” had been 2012’s box-office champ, as the film had made $155 million in the U.S. on its first weekend.
Other likely blockbuster hits coming out soon include “Men in Black III,” Pixar’s “Brave”, “The Amazing Spider-Man,” and the highly anticipated “The Dark Knight Rises.”
