And we thought $17.1 million in just one day is impressive!
The Avengers opened to just that when it premiered overseas on Wednesday, and as of today, it officially shares the number three biggest moneymaker of 2012 with The Lorax and 21 Jump Street, having grossed $178.4 MILLION!
But keep in mind, unlike those other two flicks - it hasn't opened in the United States yet!
Furthermore, it's made more than Battleship has grossed internationally in TWO WEEKS, and it quickly approaching the international total of what The Hunger Games has made so far!
Oh man. That is INSANE!
And just think about what it's going to make when it premieres in China, Japan, Russia, and HERE!
We may have our first big summer blockbuster, folks!
