‘Avengers’ Inks $200M Weekend

Avengers smash! Box-office records, that is. The Marvel film featuring superheroes Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Hawkeye—or, as any fanboy would say, “Oh, my God, this is pure awesomeness”—earned a record-setting whopping $200.3 million in its opening weekend. The record had been held by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which opened with $169.2 million. The Kevin Hart romantic comedy Think Like a Man was dethroned—and grossed only $8 million.
