051412: Weekend Box Office Results

Superheroes Continue Their Reign

Does it come as any surprise that The Avengers grabbed the number one spot at the box office again? I’d have to say no since only one new movie debuted over the weekend. For the second week in a row the superhero flick not only grabbed the top spot again but it crushed it pulling in an estimated $103.2 million. On Saturday, The Avengers eclipsed the $300 million mark in overall ticket revenue after just nine days of release. That is a new record.

In the “also showing” category – the Johnny Depp-Tim Burton movie Dark Shadows debuted in second place.
