Avengers Assemble breaks another Box Office Record

Superhero blockbuster, Marvel Avengers Assemble, has broken another US box office record in its second week of release - and is on course to hit the $1bn (£622m) mark in just 19 days.
 
 
It is the first film to make more than $100m (£62.2m) in its second week of release, and in its opening weekend, the film took $207.4m (£129m) breaking the previous record held by Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 2. Globally, it looks set to top the $1bn mark this weekend, its distributor Disney has said.
 
It has already become the biggest-grossing superhero film of all time after overtaking 2008's The Dark Knight. The release of Christopher Nolan's final Batman film in July, The Dark Knight Rises, is expected to rival the box office figures taken by Marvel Avengers Assemble. James Cameron's Avator is the highest-grossing film of all time, taking an incredible $2.782bn (£1.73bn).
 
 
The Disney-produced Marvel Avengers Assemble has earned $628.9m (£391.3m) internationally since opening on April 26.
 
"We're obviously thrilled," said Robert Iger, Disney's Chairman and CEO.
 
"You can never anticipate this kind of success," echoed Dave Hollis, the company’s executive vice president. "It's a staggering result."
 
Directed by Joss Whedon, Marvel Avengers Assemble features superheroes Black Widow, Ironman, Thor, Captain America and The Hulk, who team up to fight against villain Loki who is determined to destroy the planet.
 
Its success means Tim Burton's new collaboration with Johnny Depp, Dark Shadows, was pushed into second place at the US box office, taking a respectable $28.8m (£17.9m) in its opening weekend. Romantic comedy Think Like A Man dropped into third place while The Hunger Games occupied fourth spot in its eighth week on the big screen. The Hunger Games, starring Jennifer Lawrence, has raked in more than $386.9 (£294.7m) since its opening.
