Well it turns out that Avengers will be one of the biggest movies of all time. Right now it is completely exceeding every expectation for the movie and shattering box office records while it is at it. I do have to say that it is completely deserving and that Marvels next movies have a lot to live up to. At this point I do not think that the Dark Knight Rises will be victor in the box office battle but I am still looking forward to that movie more than any other one this summer.

That figure crushes the second weekend box office record, which was formerly held by Avatar with its $75.6 million sophomore frame.
Incredibly, The Avengers‘ 50 percent drop is the smallest second-weekend decline of any film that achieved one of the Top 10 opening weekends of all time.
