I am so dam happy that marvel has kicked all sorts of butt and shown to the other studios this is how you make a film folks want to see. As for dvd/bbluray can't wait to see how those figures turn up.

And now avengers takes 4th spot in all time box office:
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/Wolvie09/news/?a=60450
Box Office: Marvel's THE AVENGERS Tops STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE As #4 Film Of All Time In US

Going in the fourth weekend with $476M, the Joss Whedon-directed superhero epic has now passed Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace and became the #4 highest-grossing film of all time domestically... WolvieCBM - 5/25/2012

Everyone knew that The Avengers will be big at the box office. Well, almost everyone. But no one knew it would be this big. It's a monster going towards every single film for the last three weeks and crushing them with ease. Rival studios are going crazy because the Joss Whedon-directed film became a four-quadrant movie and it received a rare A+ CinemaScore. Men In Black 3 might take the #1 spot this weekend, but one thig is for sure: The Avengers will break $500M mark by Monday. Today, the film has officially topped Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, and became fourth highest-grossing film of all time in US.

Above is the updated list of records The Avengers currently holds, and it will probably break a couple of more. It will be interesting to see where will the film stop, but as of now, it has made $1,228,700,000 at the global box office.

The Avengers Takes another record fastest to $500 Million dollars:
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/JoshWildingNewsAndReviews/news/?a=60513
@ERCboxoffice (Exhibitor Relations) reports that Marvel's The Avengers has become the quickest film to reach $500 million in North America. The previous record was held by James Cameron's 3D epic, Avatar, which hit the $500 million mark in 32 days. The Avengers did it in just 23. This four day holiday, it is expected to make $47.1 million, taking its current total up to $523 million. Overseas, it currently sits at $781 million, making a worldwide gross of $1.295 billion. That puts The Avengers well on track to take Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2's #3 spot on the all-time list of highest grossing movies.

'Avengers' Accounts for Over Half of May 2012 Grosses

by Ray Subers
The Avengers
June 1, 2012

May 2012 got off to a rollicking start when The Avengers opened to a record-breaking $207.4 million, though business quickly stalled from there. In fact, The Avengers wound up accounting for 52 percent of domestic earnings in May, which is easily a new record for highest monthly share ahead of 2002's Spider-Man (37.4 percent). Because the rest of the releases were middling at best, the $1.024 billion overall tally ranks second all-time in May behind last year's $1.038 billion.

The Avengers was really the only major success story in May. The blockbuster not only set an opening weekend record, but also had the best second weekend ($103.05 million) and second-highest third ($55.6 million) and fourth ($36.7 million) weekends as well. Through four weeks in theaters, the movie has amassed an incredible $532.5 million at the domestic box office, which is by-far the highest four-week tally ever ahead of The Dark Knight's $454.7 million. In fact, on the first day of June The Avengers is set to pass The Dark Knight's $533.3 million total to become the third-highest-grossing movie ever, and it should finish its run around $600 million.

The best of the rest was MIB 3, which earned $83 million through just seven days in theaters. That's a fine figure, but it's still off from Men in Black II ($99 million) and the first Men in Black ($98.4 million) at the same point (and that's with a decade of ticket price inflation and the addition of 3D).

Dark Shadows placed third with $67 million, which is decent for a gothic horror comedy but not very good for a Tim Burton/Johnny Depp collaboration. It is higher than Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street's entire run ($52.9 million), but the movie is going to wind up at a tiny fraction of Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

While Dark Shadows was unimpressive, the award for biggest disaster easily goes to Battleship. The board game adaptation earned just $50.3 million through its first two weeks, which is less than star Taylor Kitsch's other 2012 bomb, John Carter, made through the same point ($57.3 million). Battleship could wind up around $70 million, and it's buoyed a bit by decent international grosses, but it's still a huge debacle given its $209 million budget and usually crowd-pleasing alien invasion story.

The Dictator rounded out the Top Five with $46.1 million. That's way behind Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat and a bit off from Bruno, though it could get close to Bruno's $60.05 million total by the end of its run.

The other two major releases from May weren't very successful, either. What to Expect When You're Expecting has only grossed $26.3 million, which pales in comparison to most pregnancy comedies. Oren Peli-produced horror flick Chernobyl Diaries scared up a meager $11.4 million through its first week, which is lower than practically all Summer horror movies.

Aside from The Avengers, the month's other bright spot came from the specialty market. Following three solid weeks in limited release, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel expanded nationwide over Memorial Day and has so far earned $20.9 million. Assuming it holds up well at its current locations, it should finish around $40 million.

Moonrise Kingdom was the other specialty stand-out: Wes Anderson's latest scored the best per-theater average ever for a live action movie ($130,749) when it opened at four theaters over Memorial Day weekend. Considering Anderson's general appeal and Focus Features' expertise with handling such movies, Moonrise should be in for a very healthy box office run.

Year-to-date box office is at $4.34 billion, which is up over 10 percent from the same period last year. It's only running a bit ahead of 2010, though that was a very front-loaded year, and 2012 remains well-positioned to set a new yearly box office record.

Great article on its continue success.

Its now official avengers has past tdk and taken 3rd spot on all time list:
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/Wolvie09/news/?a=60857
BOX OFFICE: Marvel's THE AVENGERS Becomes Third Highest-Grossing Film Ever

It's official! The Joss Whedon-directed superhero epic The Avengers is now third highest-grossing film of all time worldwide,just behind Avatar and Titanic... WolvieCBM - 6/2/2012

Well, this is rather a huge accomplishment for Marvel Studios: The Avengers is now officially the third highest-grossing movie ever domestically (The Dark Knight previously held that spot), with James Cameron's Avatar and Titanic being #1 and #2. And this is where the film will stay, as it probably won't manage to pass Titanic's gross (with the re-release). According to Box Office, the Joss Whedon-directed film managed to add another $5.6 million on Friday, which means the total gross is now $538.116 million. And it also passed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 for a #3 spot at the global box office.

AVENGERS update: Int'l - $793M, Domestic - $538M, Worldwide - $1.331B. Now #3 all-time passing HP7p2's $1.328B.

— Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) June 2, 2012

When it comes to other films at the box office this weekend, Snow White and the Huntsman made $20.3 million on Friday and it's set for a very solid $55.8M opening weekend.

To me, this is the crucial part of the whole deal, right here. Anything else the Apologists and Nolanites want to put on the other side of this argument is utterly fucking meaningless. Half. Half of May's box office dollars related to Avengers. Think about that for a minute. May is the beginning of the summer film season. It's one thing to completely dominate other months. But to kick everyone's ass in MAY? You have to have something going for you. Something more than just flashy effects or the current It Boy director or whatever. It's got to be something that people care about and are invested in. No amount of hype can EVER account for this type of business.

Anyone who thinks that TDKRises will even come close has my deepest sympathies.

non_amos wrote:Nolanites, do you still want me to put the hammer down?! Laughing
I'm starting to think we should start posting on Nolanite and Apologist forums and build their hopes up as much as we can to prepare them for the inevitable fall. Will TDKRises fail? I don't see that happening. But I for damn sure also don't see it doing anywhere close to the kind of numbers we've seen from Avengers. But they have a different opinion and part of me would love to stoke their opinion and inflate their expectations to sky high proportions so that they'll be that much more disappointed when the final numbers start coming in.

It'll be great...

Because we can never get enough Avengers box office updates:

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=3456&p=.htm

MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS dropped 45 percent to an estimated $20.3 million, which is the fourth-highest fifth weekend ever behind Avatar, Titanic and The Sixth Sense. On Friday, the superhero team-up passed The Dark Knight ($533.3 million) to move up to third place on the all-time domestic chart, and on Sunday it passed $550 million in a record 31 days (it took Avatar 38 days). To date, The Avengers has earned $552.7 million, and it's still on pace for around a $600 million total.


And:

http://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/170899-mib3-prometheus-and-avengers-box-office-update

Marvel's The Avengers continued to perform well its fifth weekend in theaters, adding $20.3 million domestically for a total of $552.7 million. Internationally, the blockbuster has reached $802.5 million for a massive worldwide total of $1.355 billion. On Friday, the film passed The Dark Knight ($553.3 million) for the third spot on the all-time domestic box office list and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 ($1.328 billion) for the third spot on the all-time worldwide list. Made for $220 million, the film trails James Cameron's Titanic ($658.5 million domestically, $2.185 billion) and Avatar ($760.5 million, $2.782 billion) on both lists.

CA-CHING!!!!!$$$$$

Over 800 million foreign & over 1.3 billion combined international! On track for at least 600 million domestic! And here's the good part. It's already surpassed THE DARK KNIGHT for whatever record you can even think of! Opening weekend, second weekend, I mean, it's even setting records for FIFTH WEEKEND for crying out loud! It's made more than TDK domestically, internationally, 5th weekend, piggy bank, you name it!

And if THE DARK KNIGHT didn't stand a snowball's chance, then what chance do the Nolanites think this will stand?!



But nice try anyway Nolanites. It'll just make the victory that much sweeter! lol!

The other part of the deal?

This is repeat business.

Sure, you can't underestimate the amazing word of mouth Avengers has gotten. But sorry, there's just no way the numbers would be what they are without people seeing the film multiple times. And what would you like to bet that in many cases they're bringing someone new along... who will in turn see it again, bring someone new and perpetuate the whole enterprise?

If it were possible to analyze how many credit card numbers have purchased how many tickets on how many different dates, I truly believe the numbers would be staggering.

To your issue though, how will TDKRises stack up against the Avengers machine? Me, I say put a fork in it; it's done. Unless something breaks that really gets the public ginned up for TDKRises, I just can't picture it doing what Avengers has done.

Is Marvel going to best 'Titanic', 'Avatard' and 'The Dark Knight' at it's own game?

http://www.movies.com/movie-news/39avengers39-director39s-cut-coming-to-theaters-plus-more-marvel-on-tv/8332?wssac=164&wssaffid=news&wss=mdcmkttwitter

Is an 'Avengers' Director's Cut Coming to Theaters?


Marvel’s The Avengers is currently sitting as the third highest grossing film of all-time, and is quite a ways away from overtaking the number 1 and 2 spots currently held by Avatar and Titanic. In fact, it would take a Herculean (or maybe even super-powered…) effort for the film to rise above its present rank – but sources indicate Marvel and Disney might be interested in taking a run at James Cameron’s box office juggernauts.

To that end, rumors indicate Disney and Marvel are mulling over the option of releasing a “director’s cut” of The Avengers later this summer with the hopes that some newly restored footage might ignite a second wind of ticket sales and propel the film to the top of the box office heap.

While this is purely speculation at this point – Marvel and Disney have remained mum on the topic – there is a very real possibility this could happen. Joss Whedon’s original cut of the film was reportedly just over three hours in length, meaning a restored version of the title would be adding roughly 35 minutes of previously unseen content. That seems like enough new material to get fans to pony up for more action.

While it remains to be seen if that restored footage will be enough to overtake Cameron’s films, there’s no arguing that a director’s cut will certainly pad the bottom line – anything else is just an added feather in the companies’ caps. Regardless, expect that extra footage to arrive on the DVD/Blu-ray this fall. [via SuperHeroAuthority]

Either way, I want to check out that director's cut. Guess it makes sense that Whedon (an unproven commodity at best at the time) wouldn't have final cut.

That said... look, I reserve the right to be wrong here but I can't picture even a director's cut giving Avengers the juice it needs to outgross Avatar and Titanic. The movie's doing insane business even now (Week #5 and it's done $28 million) but I can't picture even a 3D IMAX super-duper ultra mega special director's cut with DBOX motion code giving the movie the extra $200'ish million push it'd need to bring Avatar to it knees. But maybe I'm wrong. Maybe it would. But I'd be amazed.

Keep in mind, I'm the same guy who predicted Singerman would hit something like $250 or $270 million domestic based strictly on the name of the character (goodness knows the movie had nothing else going for it). Look how wrong I ended up being about THAT.

I do want to see director's cut. And wasn't expecting to see it this soon. I thought it just be from deleted scenes on dvd/bluray and just see the scenes. But it will be cool to see it in theaters. I probably would go see it again. As for taking avatar/titanic spots would be sweet thing to see happen.

Titanic 3D (PG-13)

194 minutesDrama | Romance | 3D Movie - Apr 04, 2012

Opening Weekend: $17,285,453 | Total Domestic Gross: $57,884,114 | Worldwide Gross: $344,391,403

If they wait until right before the DVD hits, I think it's possible to bump itself up to #2.

Now probable? Maybe not so much...

THE AVENGERS has been in release 50 days as of yesterday so I just thought I'd check Box Office Mojo to see the latest figures. Get this! It made a little over 2 million bucks yesterday alone, Day 50! Up 94.9% from the previous day! And here's the summary in general:

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?page=main&id=avengers11.htm


Total Lifetime Grosses
Domestic: $593,303,000 41.6%
+ Foreign: $833,100,000 58.4%
= Worldwide: $1,426,403,000
Domestic Summary
Opening Weekend: $207,438,708
(#1 rank, 4,349 theaters, $47,698 average)
% of Total Gross: 35.0%
> View All 7 Weekends
Widest Release: 4,349 theaters
In Release: 50 days / 7.1 weeks

Looks like it's gonna bust 600 million domestic wide open in days, possibly even this weekend?! And the foreign & total international figures keep climbing too huh? I guess any time now one of us is gonna have to post the next milestone. Smile

Yeah, here's what I'd like to see happen. I know that Avengers won't beat TDKR on it's opening weekend. It's simply been out too long. However, what I'd love to see is for Avengers to have a temporary resurgence, that even though it's been out for as long as it has & made gazillions of dollars, that it would still have a favorable showing even then, maybe even a considerable spike in business for remaining theaters.

Yeah, that'd be cool! Cool

Yup by tues it will be 600mill domestically. And counting on how many more weeks it stays out before first run is over we could maybe get another 10-20mill domestically and/or internationally.

You know, it's VERY possible that 'The Dark Knight Rises' is going to suffer from something. Something that won't keep it from making a lot of money, but WILL keep it from doing as well as the Bros. Warner expect:

Superhero burn-out.

We've had 'The Avengers' come and solidify itself as the #1 movie of the year. This I know beyond a shadow of a doubt. But then we have 'The Amazing Spider-Man' coming out less than 3 weeks prior as well. And with the reviews comparing it to 'Twilight', take that as you will, I can see it doing pretty well at the box office too.

With the tone of the trailers, and the fact that so many parents regretted taking their kids to see 'TDK', I can possibly see it coming in at #3 when all is said and done.

I don't know that wide audiences necessarily think of these things as "superhero movies" so much as "action movies" (or whatever TDKRises ends up being). We fans sure do but The Unwashed Masses... eh, dunno. Frankly, if four (five?) X-Men movies, two Fantastic Four movies, two Iron Man movies, one Singerman, two (to this point) Batman movies, fucking CATWOMAN (the Halle Berry thing), three (to this point) Spider-Man movies, Green Lantern, two Hulks, a Cap and Thor didn't do it... why would TDKRises be the straw that broke the camel's back?

If TDK was as beloved as the box office returns would suggest, surely it's not out of order to expect, I dunno, at least $350/$375 million for TDKRises in the US?

They DO know them as superhero movies. Remember, this ISN'T Batman's first go-round, nor is it Spider-Man's.

They know.

You are missing my point entirely.

It's not about superhero movies in general. It's about THREE block-buster superhero films IN THE SAME YEAR. Can you point to any other year where three came out in a span of 4 months and they ALL do extraordinarily well, especially after the first made $1.4 billion dollars? Hell, 'The Dark Knight' had NO other comic book films go against it the entire year!

Superhero burnout. For this year.

If TDK was as beloved as the box office returns would suggest, surely it's not out of order to expect, I dunno, at least $350/$375 million for TDKRises in the US?

I predict a worldwide gross of about $650-700 million. Good? Yes. What WB expects after 'TDK'?

Not hardly.

Ah. Then yes, I missed your point. And I have to acknowledge you do have one. Can't say as I'd considered this angle but if WB isn't concerned about this, they should be. Then again, why worry? It's too late to stop The Machine now so whatever's going to happen is going to happen.

If Wikipedia is to be believed, TDKRises has a budget of $250 million. Now, let's cut the shit, after TDK I'd say Nolan has earned it. But at the same rate, mo' money means higher expectations. This may not end well.

'The Avengers' Hits $600 Million

by Ray Subers
June 26, 2012

Sometime today, The Avengers will become the third movie ever to earn over $600 million at the domestic box office. It is reaching that milestone on its 54th day in theaters, which is a week longer than it took Avatar (47 days). Including its foreign gross, the movie's worldwide total now sits at an incredible $1.44 billion.

The Avengers started its remarkable box office run with a record-shattering $207.4 million opening weekend. In a somewhat surprising turn of events, the movie's appeal reached well beyond the fanboy crowd, and it has held incredibly well in its eight weeks in theaters. Its debut currently accounts for 34.6 percent of its gross, which is a lower share than predecessors The Incredible Hulk (41.1 percent), Iron Man 2 (41 percent), Captain America: The First Avenger (36.8 percent) and Thor (36.3 percent).

The movie now holds 28 records on Box Office Mojo including opening weekend, opening theater average ($47,698) second weekend ($103.05 million), 10-day gross ($373.1 million), and fastest to $500 million (23 days). It currently accounts for over 32 percent of the total grosses for Summer 2012, and it has earned more than the next four movies combined (MIB 3, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, Snow White and the Huntsman and Prometheus).

The Avengers continues to earn plenty of money, and this past weekend it eased 19 percent to $7.2 million. Based on its trajectory, it could wind up as high as $630 million, though that assumes its able to continue generating interest after The Amazing Spider-Man opens next Tuesday.

On Wednesday, The Avengers will pass the original run of Titanic ($600.8 million), though it won't eclipse Titanic's combined $658.7 million (including April's 3D re-release) unless it gets a major re-release at some point.
