I would describe how good The Avengers is here, but words can't really do it justice. If you haven't already seen it, do so now. Trust me, you'll have yourself a good time. The buzz around the movie has just been nuts, and the sales numbers are reflecting that: throughout its opening weekend in US markets, Marvel's The Avengers has grossed just over $200 million dollars. That is the largest U.S. opening in history. Source: Time No spell is going to change this, Harry Potter. The Hunger Games, eat your heart out. Batman, these have been your darkest nights, etc., etc. It's also worth noting that the movie itself had a budget of (according to Wikipedia) $220 million. That means the movie has almost tripled that number in 12 days alone. There's a strong performance, and then there's a Hulk strength performance. I'm sure the people behind the movie must be feeling pretty good about themselves. I'm not sure exactly how they'll take this success, but I can offer a good guess.
