See Thor and Captain America looking up? They’re trying to see the top of the staggering pile of money they’ve accumulated. Marvel’s The Avengers was already a worldwide box office phenomenon and now that it’s stateside, it’s breaking even more records. Via the Wall Street Journal, several outlets are reporting that the film has shattered the domestic opening weekend box office record with an unbelievable $200.3 Million!
The final numbers will be available tomorrow, but even if this estimate is slightly inflated, The Avengers will undoubtedly eclipse Harry Potter‘s record from a year ago at $169 million.
