Last week, Marvel’s The Avengers raked in quite a few box office records, and this week will be no different. Having grossed over $370 million domestically and $1 billion worldwide, The Avengers hold the records for best second weekend, fastest movie to reach $300 million and $350 million, and highest eight-day, nine-day, and ten-day grosses. The avengers did fall 50% from last week though. But with these numbers, who cares?
While Marvel is celebrating, Warner Brother and Tim Burton aren’t. Dark Shadows made a disappointing $29.6 million on a production budget of $150 million. But on the bright side, Dark Shadows will have three new nationwide releases this week.
