Move over every other movie that used to hold a box office opening weekend record because The Avengers just HULK SMASHED the hell out of the competition.  In just the US this film made $200.3 million dollars this past weekend.  When you combine the domestic take with the International ticket sales The Avengers has already grossed $641.8 million dollars in just 12 flipping days!  That total is greater than the gross of every individual Marvel movie that came before The Avengers (Captain America: The First Avenger ($364 million), Thor($449 million), Iron Man ($585 million) and Iron Man 2 ($624 million) * $ figures come from Escapist).

Just to show you how dominant its domestic opening take is, the movie it knocked from the #1 spot, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, grossed $169.2 million during its first weekend, which is $31 million less than The Avengers.  That is the definition of pwnage!  James Cameron may finally have some competition at the top of the all time highest grossing movie list!  You’ve really been needing to see this movie if you haven’t already done so…
