This Just In 'Avengers' Is A Hit, Breaks Records With $200M Debut

If like me you failed to see The Avengers over the weekend apparently you might be in the minority.

According to the film's distributor Disney and their weekend estimates "The Avengers" might well be the first movie ever to haul in $200 million in a single weekend. The number could still dip below $200 million by Monday when the actually numbers will be released, but Disney spent the weekend revising its forecasts upward.  Which means the movie could very well have done better than their estimates.

Disney has said the new Marvel Comics superhero movie had an amazing opening weekend with a gross of $80.5 million on Friday alone. If the numbers hold true the film will end the weekend smashing the domestic revenue record with a $200.3 million debut. Making it by in large the biggest opening ever, shooting past the previous record of $169.2 million for the debut of last year's "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" finale.

In all the film has grossed a worldwide haul of nearly $641.8 million in barely a week and a half, more than all of its Marvel superhero forerunners "Iron Man," "Iron Man 2," "Thor" and "Captain America" combined during their entire runs.

 I don't know about you but from the reviews I've seen and read I'm ready to go take a peek!
