The Avengers Juggernaught Passes $1 Billion

<br />Yes. Before its second weekend has even finished The Avengers has passed a billion dollars in world­wide ticket sales and an equally impres­sive $373 million in domestic.

That puts it according to BoxOf​fice​Mojo​.com at #3 for Marvel brand movies (behind only Spider-man and Spider-man 2 which are likely to fall by Monday at this rate).

The Dark Knight's $533 million is already within sight. And it's already ranked 11th for World­wide all time grossing movies.

Not only can we expect a sequel but a whole slew more Marvel movies and I'd say this along has justi­fied Disney's purchase of Marvel a few years ago. Can you imagine the merchan­dise this thing must be pushing?

  1. We're going to try for a Wednesday matinée, ourselves.

    Disney really has to be beside them­selves. They've been strug­gling with boys' merch for a while (Cars brings in buck­et­loads, but nothing else is nearly that strong), so this addresses a weak­ness in their market domi­nance quite nicely.

  2. I've seen it twice. my oldest son saw it twice. And, my youngest saw it once. I have several friends who have seen it twice. and, one friend who is plan­ning to it a third time at an IMAX theater. ridiculous!
