My Rating: 9/10
Synopsis: THE AVENGERS ASSEMBLED (for the first time)! ‘Nuff said.
All has been said already about this film. Don’t have to sell it. It already eclipsed the billion dollar mark in a short span of time. It broke many records ranking number one on: Opening Week (North America and in other regions of the world), Opening Weekends -May, Opening Weekends – Summer, Top 3-, 4-, 5-, 6-, 7-, 8-, 9-, 10-day Grosses, Second Weekends, Fastest to $350 million, and shattered many more records. To appreciate fully the magnitude of success that is The Avengers, it must be stated that it has beaten the opening week of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (Box-office Mojo). The Avengers is the first film ever to reach $200 million in three days in North America alone – an extremely difficult feat to follow.
