Avengers Beats Avatar’s 2 Week BO records, Sequel in the Works


Avengers Beats Avatar’s 2 Week BO records, Sequel in the Works

Disney/Marvel’s Superhero movie juggernaut The Avengers has just brought in an estimated $100.4 million on its second week stateside, making its total box office take $373.2 million. In comparison, the previous second week highest earner, James Cameron’s Avatar, only made $75 million in its 2nd week at the box office.

The Avengers is also expected to cross the $1 billion threshold at the global box office on May 13, its 19th day in release, making it the first ever Marvel Studios film (and fifth Walt Disney Studios release) to ever reach said important milestone. Currently, there are only 12 films in history to ever gross $1 billion, with four of them coming from Disney (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).

Of course, being the savvy studios that they are, Marvel and Disney will not let all of this success and momentum go to waste, as it is announced last week that a sequel is already in development.

The following two tabs change content below.

Neil Raymundo

A cowardly and treacherous Toonbarn blogger who can transform into a McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle. Secretly wants to replace Toonbarn Rob as leader of the Decepticons.
