The Avengers Rakes in $18.7 Million at Midnight

by at . Comments

Sorry, Thor. You are no match for Katniss Everdeen.

The Avengers - which is receiving glowing reviews from critics around the country - opened at midnight last night and brought in $18.7 million from those showings. Impressive? Yes, it's the eighth best midnight tally of all-time.

Record-breaking? No, it fell about a million short of The Hunger Games and the haul was a considerable amount lower than the midnight box office champion: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 somehow garnered $43.5 million!

Have you seen The Avengers yet? Grade it if so:
