Wow...would you look at how the #TheAvengers stacked up? #Disney #Marvel

This is some amazing news! The highly anticipated debut of MARVEL’S The Avengers set an all-time domestic record of $200.3 MILLION locally in the US and $641.8 MILLION globally. *Jaw drops* Have you heard about the local NYC event at the Tribecca Film Festival? That sounded like the event to be at!

It is definitely a cause for celebration though because they were also the fastest movie to reach $200 million domestically, in just 3 days. Even the debut day became the second highest single day take of all time at $80.5 million.

Want more facts? It was such a big hit that it's broken records far and wide:
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
Israel, Poland, and Japan are the only places where the Avengers hasn't opened yet.

Coming up from Disney will be the sequel to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger will be released April 4, 2014, Thor November 15, 2013, and the Iron Man series May 3, 2013. So many superhero films coming up, I can't wait. *Sigh* If only I didn't have to fly out this week for personal matters or I'd be first in line at the theaters to catch this one. Have you watched it yet? Tell me what you think.

Although, Marvel’s The Avengers is the first Marvel Studios film to be marketed and distributed by The Walt Disney Studios, I sure hope it won't be the first and last because from what I've heard, they really did a great job smashing it out of the ball park!
