Press Release

Marvel’s The Avengers is expected to cross the $600 million domestic box office threshold today, becoming one of only three films in history ever to reach this milestone. The Super Hero film’s global total is now an estimated $1,438.3 million, and it stands as the #3 film of all time globally and domestically.

Marvel’s The Avengers opened in North America May 4 with a staggering $207.4 million – the biggest domestic debut of all time – and has been shattering domestic box office records ever since including the industry’s all-time second weekend record with $103 million; fastest film to reach $200 million (3 days), $300 million (9 days), $400 million (14 days), and $500 million (23 days); and highest Saturday ($69.5 million) and Sunday ($57 million) totals. It is the #4 film of all time internationally with $838.9 million.

Among only 12 films that have grossed $1 billion at the global box office, Marvel’s The Avengers is one of five billion-dollar Disney releases, which also include Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Alice in Wonderland, Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 3, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

  1. I’m glad to see this! I really enjoyed The Avengers, and more money to the studios means that more movies can be made. I’m also excited to see how well The Dark Knight Rises does. Anybody who says “comic book movies are dead” is, at this point, blind.

  2. I’ll be completely honest here, I’ve seen Avengers twice already (technically paid for it three times as it was the second film shown at the drive-in I went to this weekend, but didn’t watch it as the people in my car were tired and wanted to go home after Brave… I was a bit frustrated), and I’d totally go watch it again if it was released in a director’s cut or something.
