The Avengers Global Box Office Haul: Record-Breaking!

by at . Comments

Take cover, Katniss Everdeen and the cast of Think Like a Man, The Avengers is coming for you.

While this Marvel blockbuster doesn't open until May 4 in the United States, it's international box office haul from this weekend portends a record-shattering few days ahead in America, as The Avengers raked in $178 million worldwide from Wednesday to Sunday.

For some perspective:

  • That's more than Battleship grossed in in its first two weeks abroad, and nearly what The Hunger Games has earned in over a month.
  • That figure alone would make The Avengers the third highest-grossing film of 2012 domestically.
  • It garnered the most from Great Britain, $24.7 million
  • It hasn't even opened yet in such huge markets as China, Japan or Russia.

Or the U.S., of course. Are you excited for The Avengers?
