The Avengers reaches $400M domestic in record time; Nearing $1.1B worldwide

Marvel’s The Avengers remained in first place yesterday with $6.208M, crossing the $400M mark ($402.021M) in a record-setting 14 days. The previous record holder for fastest to $400M was 2008’s “The Dark Knight Rises” which reached that mark in 18 days. With only so-so competition this weekend, The Avengers will repeat as box office champion with an expected $55-60M 3-day gross.

Overseas, The Avengers added an estimated $10.6M to bring its foreign tally to $668.7M and its worldwide tally to $1.071B.

After opening to $4.175M on Wednesday (including an estimated $600,000 from Tuesday midnights), The Dictator dipped 31% on Thursday for a second place $2.867M ($7.041M cume). The Dictator could do about $15-20M this weekend.

Opening today were Battleship and What To Expect When You’re Expecting. Battleship is already past $200M in foreign markets, but the film won’t put a dent in The Avenger’s firm hold on first place this weekend. The Universal blockbuster — with a reported $209M budget — will probably gross somewhere in the neighborhood of $30-35M this weekend. A weak $440,000 midnights number certainly didn’t help its cause. Meanwhile, the comedy What to Expect When You’re Expecting could do about $15M.
