    Re: 'The Avengers'

    According to Deadline Hollywood, the early international release of 'The Avengers' has posted some impressive box office numbers:

    On Wednesday the film took in approx. $6 million (in US $) in Australia, $1.2 million in Taiwan, $3 million in France and $700,000 in New Zealand, their biggest opening day ever.

    That's the second-highest opening day ever in Australia, the 'Harry Potter' finale was first with $7 million. It is the highest opening day ever for a Marvel film and the highest ever opening day for a Disney film.


    The PG-13 release opens domestically on May 4th and is currently tracking to open at over $150 million, 'Iron Man 2' had a $128 million opening weekend.

    'The Avengers' break records overseas,
    already earns $36 million

    Joss Whedon's The Avengers continues to wreak havoc at the foreign box office, earning $36 million in its first two days and breaking records in a number of territories.


    From Disney and Marvel Studios, Avengers scored the third best Thursday opening ever in the U.K. ($4.1 million) after posting the second highest opening day of all time in Australia on Wednesday.

    Moreover, the superhero extravaganza is showing strength across the globe. In Argentina, the pic grossed $600,000 on Thursday, the third best opening of all time. And Avengers debuted to $2.3 million Korea, the third biggest opening of all time for non-local title.

    Avengers is rolling out overseas a week ahead of its May 4 domestic bow. The tentpole is expected to kick-off summer in spectacular fashion with a $150 million-plus opening in North America.

    Re: 'The Avengers'


    Still more countries are reporting grosses. The superhero super-blockbuster doesn't come out in the U.S. until May 4th but already it's scooping up 60+% of all pre-sold movie tickets online and more than all the previous Marvel films combined. My sources report $73.1M international box office in its first 3 days of release in 41 territories.

    Marvel's The Avengers from Disney now is playing in approximately 70% of its foreign run (with big ticket nations like Russia, China and Japan still to open). Performance to date in key territories include: Australia $11.1M, UK $9.4M, France $6.8M, Italy $5.8M, Mexico $4.7M, Korea $4.5M, Taiwan $3.6M, Germany $3.4M, Philippines $3.4M, Brazil $2.8M, Hong Kong $1.8M, and Spain $1.7M.

    Throughout the smaller Latin American territories opening Thursday, the Friday opening was the best ever Disney and Marvel opening day. Mexico represented the second highest opening day of all time. Brazil was the third highest opening day of all time. In the UK, the 2 days to date have exceeded the opening weekends of previous Marvel films Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America. Taiwan was the second highest Friday of all time. Hong Kong was the highest non-holiday Friday result of all time. India opened on Friday to the third biggest opening day for all Hollywood titles ever and highest ever for a Disney and Marvel opening day. Malaysia opened Friday to the #1 biggest opening day of all-time. Vietnam opened Friday to the 2nd biggest opening day of all time. And Iceland opened Friday to the #1 biggest opening day of all-time.

    'The Avengers'
    Conquers Overseas;
    Sets Opening Records in
    Latin America and Asia


    Marvel/Disney release bags nearly
    $25 million in the U.K.
    Although it’s still late spring, the summer tentpole season opened offshore with a blast on the weekend as Marvel’s The Avengers opened in 39 territories on the foreign theatrical circuit, grossing a jaw droppingly robust $178.4 million.

    Playing in about 70 % of the international marketplace, the $220-million-dollar, action-packed mélange of comic book heroes – the first Marvel release marketed and distributed by Walt Disney -- set all time opening records in Mexico ($15.9 million), Brazil ($11.3 million), Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, Central American and Bolivia.

    Also, opening launch records were set in Hong Kong ($4.6 million), Taiwan ($7.7 million), Malaysia, and the Philippines. Opening day records were set in New Zealand and in Iceland.

    Costarring Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo, (The Hulk), Tom Huddleston (villain Loki) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), The Avengers score especially well in key English-speaking markets -- the U.K. ($24.7 million at some 530 situations) and Australia ($19.7 million at some 260 sites, the second biggest market opening ever).

    Continental European territories provided these opening numbers: France ($12.7 million), Italy ($10.4 million), Spain ($7.3 million) and Germany ($6.7 million). Korea generated $12.9 million while the Philippines came up with $6.5 million.

    Disney opened The Avengers foreign a week before its U.S. and Canada bow to leverage May Day and other national holidays in Europe. For various piracy-related issues, a Russia bow was set later for May 2. China opens May 5 in accordance with government dictates, and Japan premiers Aug. 17 permitting a market-specific promotional campaign to take root.

    The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, is far and away 2012’s biggest hit on the foreign circuit so far, eclipsing Titanic 3D, which grossed $98.9 million a fortnight ago.

    Re: 'The Avengers'

    - Deadline Hollywood 5/2:

    "...Marvel's The Avengers from Disney could close in on $160M when it opens in North America this weekend and $425M when it opens in Russia and China for a possible total near $585M through Sunday.

    Even very conservative estimates put the worldwide total at $450M through Sunday when the Joss Whedon's actioner will be open in every movie territory except Japan.

    Yesterday alone The Avengers made $42.3M overseas from 41 territories, bringing the total through Tuesday to $260.5M."

    Re: 'The Avengers'

    Kicking off the summer box office in style, Disney and Marvel Studios' The Avengers is expected to gross $65 million to $67 million on Friday, surpassing all previous Marvel titles and among the top opening days ever.


    It's still too early to project a weekend number, but the 3D tentpole should open between $150 million and $155 million, making it one of the top domestic debuts of all time.

    Friday's gross will include $18.7 million in Thursday midnight runs, a record for a superhero title and the eighth-best of all time.

    Just got back and enjoyed it as well. What happened to this being the first Marvel film to open with a Castle before the film? Only one brief mention of Disney after the credits.

    'The Avengers' is a Paramount Pictures film, via a previous deal, thus the mountain and not a castle in opening titles.

    Having already pumped up its box-office market share thanks to its relationship with Marvel Studios, Paramount was guaranteed at least another $115 million Monday when it closed a deal with Disney to transfer worldwide marketing and distribution rights to Marvel’s “The Avengers” and “Iron Man 3” to the Burbank studio.

    Disney purchased Marvel Entertainment for $4.24 billion last year, but Marvel’s current cycle of movies had been contracted for release through Paramount via a distribution deal in place when Disney entered the picture.

    Disney is looking at even stronger North American box office for Marvel’s The Avengers in Digital 3D, RealD and IMAX 3D than even rival studios thought. The gross number now is thought to be $70 million on opening day Friday (including $18.1M midnights) and $160+M through Sunday.

    “Freakin’ phenomenal,” one studio mogul phoned me tonight. ”It has a real shot at the weekend record,” another movie boss emailed me. Warner Bros’ Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 (also a 3D movie) holds both the Friday opening record of $91M and the first weekend record of $169M.

    The AMC theater chain is selling so many Avengers tickets today that its entire credit card processing system is delayed so moviegoers can’t charge their concession snacks right away. This, after AMC announced it made $4M from Joss Whedon’s superhero actioner overnight.

    'Avengers' Scores $80.5 Million, Second Biggest Friday Opening
    of All Time

    UPDATED: The record-smashing tentpole now has a shot at debuting to $170 million, the biggest opening of all time in North America; the pic has earned $334.3 million internationally for a whopping global total of $414.8 million.

    Racing past all projections, Disney and Marvel Studios' The Avengers grossed $80.5 million on Friday, the second biggest single day of all time at the domestic box office.
    Joss Whedon's 3D superhero extravaganza also earned a glowing A+ CinemaScore from moviegoers. Throughout Friday, Avengers was on pace to gross $65 million to $70 million for the day, but numbers shot up because of a late night surge in traffic.

    Last summer, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 earned $91.1 million on its first day, the biggest day in history. It also scored the top weekend opening of all time in grossing $169.2 million. Box office observers believe Avengers could best that number and hit $170 million.

    Avengers is all but assured of scoring the biggest opening for a superhero pic, beating the $158.1 million debut of The Dark Knight (the second biggest opening of all time domestically). Dark Knight -- which didn't have the advantage of the extra upcharge for a 3D ticket -- earned $67.3 million on its first Friday.

    Friday's gross for Avengers included $18.7 million in Thursday midnight runs, a record for a superhero title and the eighth-best of all time.

    The tentpole, which unites key Marvel superhero characters, has already $334.3 million internationally -- eclipsing the total lifetime grosses for Iron Man ($267 million), Thor ($268 million), Captain America: The First Avenger ($192 million) and Iron Man 2 ($311.5 million) - whose characters also are in Avengers. It should eclipse Iron Man 2 ($311.5 million) by Saturday at the latest.

    Including Friday's domestic tally of $80.5 million, the pic has now taken in $414.8 million worldwide.

    Re: 'The Avengers'

    'Avengers' Opens to
    Record Shattering
    $200.3 Million

    The Disney and Marvel Studios tentpole makes history in nabbing the biggest opening of all time in North America; globally "Avengers" has earned a massive $641.8 million in 12 days.
    Joss Whedon's The Avengers has set a new bar in opening to a walloping $200.3 million at the domestic box office, the largest debut ever and kicking of summer 2012 in high style.

    The Avengers -- marking a major victory for Disney and Marvel Studios -- easily dethroned Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which opened to $169.2 million last summer, then the largest number in history.

    Overseas, where Avengers opened a week ago, the tentpole has earned $441.5 million for a stunning worldwide total of $641.8 million -- already surpassing the lifetime totals of Captain America: The First Avenger ($364 million), Thor ($449 million), Iron Man ($585 million) and Iron Man 2 ($624 million).

    The 3D tentpole is now positioned to reach $1 billion in global grosses.

    Among other records, Avengers is the first film in history to cross $200 million in only three days of play at the domestic box office. It also scored the biggest Saturday gross of all time in earning $69.7 million.

    "It's been a fantastic weekend on every single front," Disney executive vice president of distribution Dave Hollis said.
    Hollis said the slim 13 percent drop from Friday to Saturday reflects great word of mouth, as well as the fact that all segments of the audience are turning out, including families. Roughly 52 percent saw it in 3D.

    The tentpole played evenly in terms of age, with 50 percent of the audience under the the age of 25 and 50 percent over. Couples made up 55 percent, families 24 percent and teens 21 percent. Males represented 60 percent of the audience.

    Epix, the new cable channel that last weekend kicked off with a Marvel Superhero weekend featuring 'Captain America The First Avenger', 'Thor' and 'Iron Man 2' has secured first-run cable TV rights to air 'The Avengers' and 'The Hunger Games'.

    Both films were produced by the co-owners of Epix, Viacom and Lionsgate respectively.
