Breaking records each day, The Avengers also boasts a powerful A+ Cinema Score and 96% on Flixer ratings. Not only is the word of mouth good among fans, but also among critics who are lauding Mark Ruffalo's depictive acting techniques. Standing as the 32nd highest-grossing film of all time in only 17 days with $803.3 million, the ensemble movie will most certainly pass the $1 billion dollar threshold. Currently, The Avengers accounts for 84% of daily sales portending a really good hold-up for this week.
Expect the Avengers to shatter everything again with a second-weekend gross of $105.8 million, a drop of 49.1%.
The Dark Shadows will suffer The Avengers' "smashing" power, and open to a decent $32 million.
