Not even Johnny Depp could detract from the cashcow that has become The Avengers!
While his new movie Dark Shadows was predicted to put a dent in the box office of Joss Whedon's record-breaking superhero extravaganza, Tim Burton's horror remake debuted to about $29 million this weekend, while the latter grossed around $103.2 million from Friday to Sunday alone!
And THAT, friends, means that it is the FIRST film EVER to reach nine digits in its second domestic weekend, as well as make over $1 BILLION worldwide!
Yes. You're reading correctly: A BILLION!
And according to fans and critics alike, very well-deserved!
Can't wait to see what other records you guys will crush from here on out! It could only be the beginning!
