Disney’s The Avengers drops jaws with massive $200 million opening

“Hulk smash…box office!” Everyone expected for The Avengers to be big, but no one had any idea just how big. According to THR, Disney’s The Avengers absolutely shattered box office records this weekend, earning the biggest opening weekend of all time with a whopping take of $200 million. To put into perspective just how big this is, the previous record holder, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 opened to $169 million last summer, which is more than $30 million less than what The Avengers pulled off in the last three days. It also eclipses Disney’s biggest opening of all time, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, by almost $70 million. The Avengers has also been a huge success with critics and audiences alike, with a “Freshness” rating of 94% at RottenTomatoes.com and an A+ CinemaScore.
