The Walt Disney Studios announced today that Marvel’s The Avengers posted an estimated $200.3 million in its domestic debut May 4-6, shattering previous records and positioning the film as the highest-grossing domestic debut of all time. The film’s cumulative global box office gross is an estimated $641.8 million over 12 days in release.

In just three days, Marvel’s the Avengers is the fastest movie to reach $200 million domestically. The domestic debut kicked off Friday, May 4 and marks the second highest single day take of all time at $80.5 million. Saturday’s box office gross of $69.7 million is the highest Saturday take of all time. Moviegoers gave Marvel’s The Avengers a rare and perfect A+ CinemaScore.

Marvel’s The Avengers began opening internationally April 25 and crossed the $600 million mark globally May 6 after just 12 days in release.

International box office highlights include:

- Opened May 3 in Russia with $17.9 million, the biggest Marvel opening weekend ever
- Opened May 5 in China with $17.4 million
- Biggest opening weekend of all time in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, Central America, Bolivia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, and Philippines

Marvel’s The Avengers has now opened in all major markets except Israel, Poland, and Japan.

The film’s success comes a month after Marvel and Disney announced that a sequel to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger will be released April 4, 2014. A sequel to last summer’s Thor is scheduled for release November 15, 2013, and the third installment of the hit Iron Man series, which has earned over $1.2 billion worldwide, will arrive in theaters May 3, 2013.

Marvel’s The Avengers is the first Marvel Studios film to be marketed and distributed by The Walt Disney Studios.

Yay!

It'll be interesting to see how The Dark Knight Rises does. Pretty high standard set for this summer.

There is a poll at www.deadline.com asking if you think "The Avengers" will beat "The Dark Knight" opening weekend box office, most said no. I thought it would do about $160 million this weekend and that would have been great. I wouldn't be shocked if Joss gets a green light to finally make "Wonder Woman".

Something I'm told we should take note of in terms of it's initial success - a big part of the reason the numbers are so big that is. Opening weekend is more about that than "how well Joss made it." That will come second weekend from word of mouth I would think. And also, something else to consider: shazzaaaam! Congrats to all involved - couldn't happen to a nicer human (JW).

The estimates on box office mojo had Dark Knight Rises crushing Avengers. I don't know if that's domestic, international or total. I also don't know if they're predicting a big opening weekend or just a long theatrical run.

Either way Avengers did crazy well. Obviously a successful venture. Wouldn't be surprised to hear a deal being made with Joss to do a sequel.

Just think Haken it could reach $1B before school's out this summer. Hell it may do it this coming weekend. The film had everything going for it, but in particular, a solid script (there were some minor cringeworthy moments mainly spoken by Nick Fury, Samuel L. Jackson) but all in all worth every penny.
