We suspect that it's safe to call Marvel and Joss Whedon's The Avengers movie a hit now. This past weekend, it topped the American box office for the second week running, bringing in a staggering $103.1m in the Us alone. It comfortably edged out the week's big new release, Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, which had to be content with $28.8m.
The Avengers now stands at $373m in the Us, making it the 18th biggest film of all time at the American box office in less than two weeks. Our guess for its final American total is at least $500m, given the fact that the film doesn't have anything in the way of direct competition until Men In Black 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man roll around.
