Stratospheric Weekend for Superheroes

Well, y’all did it.

Marvel’s The Avengers had the biggest opening weekend. Ever. In the history of the world.

According to Deadline.com, the opening weekend looks to finally tally in at $207.1 million domestically.

Since the movie opened first overseas, that brings a total global take to near $650 million. It’s on track to be a billion dollar movie.

The previous record was Warner Bros’ 3D Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 at $169M.

I guess we love our men in tights.

Here’s our Avengers review.
