The Walt Disney Studios announced that Marvel’s The Avengers posted an estimated $200.3 million in its domestic debut May 4-6, shattering previous records and positioning the film as the highest-grossing domestic debut of all time. The film’s cumulative global box office gross is an estimated $641.8 million over 12 days in release. My family and I are a part of these figures because we were sitting in line May 4 at 2 pm EST to get our seats at the show. I have been waiting not so patiently for this film to come out and was going to be one of the first to see it.
Marvel’s The Avengers was AMAZING, but we can talk more about that later.. In just three days, Marvel’s the Avengers is the fastest movie to reach $200 million domestically. The domestic debut kicked off Friday, May 4 and marks the second highest single day take of all time at $80.5 million. Saturday’s box office gross of $69.7 million is the highest Saturday take of all time. Moviegoers gave Marvel’s The Avengers a rare and perfect A+ CinemaScore. Marvel’s The Avengers began opening internationally April 25 and crossed the $600 million mark globally May 6 after just 12 days in release.
My Avengers Movie Review
Three thumbs up (borrow a friends or use a toe)! This movie was excellent. From the non-stop action, funny one liners from the Hulk and the cinematography only Marvel and Disney can provide. My kids (2 and 4) sat still through most of it, but their favorite movies are Iron Man and The Avengers old cartoons. They were prepped for the action and so was most of the audience. Kids were donning outfits portraying their favorite characters. During the movie, you could hear various kids shout out their favorite character and even one tiny argument over who was more powerful until the Hulk showed up! Then that pretty much answered that argument. It was pretty awesome to see the beginning of The Avengers and what happened after each of the individual films. I do not want to give you any spoilers, but I can tell you wholeheartedly this is the first movie I have seen in a long time I would return to see again in the theater with their rising prices. The film’s success comes a month after Marvel and Disney announced that a sequel to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger will be released April 4, 2014. A sequel to last summer’s Thor is scheduled for release November 15, 2013, and the third installment of the hit Iron Man series, which has earned over $1.2 billion worldwide, will arrive in theaters May 3, 2013.
