Even with the availability of the movie online (as some of my friends watched it before it premiered here in the US), Marvel’s The Avengers still broke the record of biggest-opening movie ever. It beat Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 which held the record from July of last year.
The top 5 biggest-opening movies on record are:
1. Marvel’s The Avengers at $200 million
2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2 at $169 million
3. The Dark Knight at $158 million
4. The Hunger Games at $152 million
5. Spider-Man 3 at $151 million
