Avengers Crossed The $ 1Bn Mark Worldwide..Posted: May 14, 2012
In what was being expected for some time right now, the Disney-distributed Marvel-produced superhero combo film The Avengersbreached the highly coveted $1 billion mark worldwide, becoming only the 12th film in Hollywood history to do so. In the process, the film has also surged past The Dark Knight. And all this in quite a short span of time.
Now how high the film can go, is a matter of time. Considering the pace it is going at, even $1.5 billion will not be impossible. The film has set a new record for the highest second weekend in the US, notching $103 million and thrashing the previous record held by Avatar. That itself speaks volumes.
With this development, the chances of the other supposed toppers of the year, The Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey have got sudden spanners in their works. Suffice it to say, this year’s line-up is like nothing you have ever seen in decades. Sit back, buckle up and enjoy the blockbuster ride.
