BOX OFFICE: The Avengers Take First in Style



The Avengers proved that with great superheros, great PR and story you can indeed put diverse iconic characters on screen and score gold! They became the first movie to take in over 200 million in only three days! It's already made over 400 million world wide which means it's headed for at least a billion or more by next week probably. That may even out do Avatar. And that's just the beginning of the summer blockbuster. Batman and Spiderman are still to come.
