With $417 million in only 15 days, the box office juggernaut will remain in the #1 seat with a staggering $56.8 million, ranking as the second-highest third weekend gross.
Internationally, The Avengers raked an estimated $13.9 million on Friday placing its non-north american haul at $682.6 million and globally at $1.099 billion--6th highest grossing film of all-time. By Sunday, the superhero ensemble should become the 4th highest-grossing film of all-time globally.
Battleship, is expected to open to an underwhelming $27.6 million, due to a below par midnight gross and an estimated $9.5 million on Friday. With an opening of $27.6 million, Battleship will be lucky to earn more than $100 million as its final domestic revenue. Although domestic numbers aren't too good, Battleship has a solid international cume of $220 million covering a outlandish production budget of $209 million(not inclusive of marketing costs). Universal will suffer a slight blow, but not as bad as that which Disney experienced with John Carter. Luckily, The Avengers was there to save the day.
