The Avengers breaking records internationally!

Disney’s “The Avengers” has broken some big, big, big records here in Australia – where it commenced yesterday. Check out the press release from Disney!


26 April 2012 (Sydney, AUSTRALIA): Marvel’s The Avengers has smashed the Australian box office on its opening day of release with a record breaking AUD$6 million (USD$6.2million). The stunning opening makes The Avengers the biggest Marvel Studios opening day ever – 233% ahead of Iron Man 2 (AUD$1.8 million) and represents the number one Disney Studios opening day, ahead of The Chronicles of Narnia Lion, Witch and Wardrobe (AUD$3.5 million).

The one day figure easily surpasses the combined individual opening days box office of each Marvel superhero film Australian opening (Iron Man 2 – $1.813 million, Thor – $1.3 million, Captain America – $0.86 million and The Incredible Hulk – $0.37 million for a total of $4.357 million).

The opening puts the film at the number two position of all time openings behind Harry Potter Deathly Part 2 (AUD$7 million).

“The most anticipated blockbuster for the year Marvel’s The Avengers has really lit up the box office with this stunning opening – Disney and Marvel’s biggest yet in Australia. The Avengers is testament to fabulous storytelling combined with a blockbuster cast and world-renowned director – this superhero epic is a must-see for all Australian fans and film lovers!,” said John Cracknell, senior vice president & managing director The Walt Disney Company, Australia.

With the weekend coming up, those numbers are only going to increase even more!
