Weekend Box Office – ‘The Avengers’ Breaks More Records

Posted: May 13, 2012 in Movies

Week number two for The Avengers, another cool $100+ million weekend.  No big deal.  As a matter of fact, The Avengers had such a strong second weekend that it set the record for most money made by a film in its second weekend.  Once again, no big deal.  The film has also garnered so much money that it’s set to break the $1 billion mark globally.  Need I say more?  To say that The Avengers is the biggest movie of all time would be a vast understatement.

The number two film this past weekend was Johnny Depp’s and Tim Burton’s collaboration Dark Shadows that brought in a measly $28M and can now be classified as a box office flop.  Considering the film cost $150M to make it’s not a reasonable stretch to say that the film won’t approach that at the theaters.  Oh well.  Maybe this will stop the countless films that the duo does together that are terrible to begin with.  The number three film at the box office this weekend was Think Like A Man which continues to defy the odds and stay in the top 5 despite not being very good.  The movie made $6.3M this weekend.  Number four at the box office is this year’s other huge money maker The Hunger Games, which maintained its strong outing with another $4+M.  The film has now made nearly $387M since March.  To compare, The Avengers has made $373M domestically in two weeks.  Whoa.  The number five film this past weekend was Zac Efron’s romance film The Lucky One, with $4M.
