The Avengers Hauls In $178.4million Over Weekend!

Is anyone surprised that The Avengers broke records this weekend? S.H.I.E.L.D’s baby brought in over $178million as of close of business Sunday. This is even more impressive when you consider the film hasn’t been released worldwide yet.

Aussies got it lucky with Nick Fury and co. kabooming onto our screens on Wednesday. However monster movie markets like the USA, China, Russia and Japan are still waiting, with their release dates spanning from next week through to August (poor Japan!).

The UK were the weekend’s biggest spenders, forking out $24.7million on movie tickets so far.

With rave reviews around the world (check out our review; Phil knows his Marvel!) The Avengers looks set to rake in aloooot more.
