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

The Lorax had a good run while it lasted.
But there's a new prom king on campus and his name is 21 Jump Street.
The movie, based on the awesome '80s TV show starring Johnny Depp, edged out the animated film The Lorax as the number one movie this weekend, making $35 million.
The Lorax was getting pretty comfortable at the number one spot for the past two weeks, but dreamy Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill had what it took to take the gold.
As for the rest of the weekend's box office, John Carter had a huge drop, taking in an additional $13.5 million, making the total film's gross so far to $53.2 million.
BTW, the movie cost $250 million to make.
Wanna see who else came out on top?

The Lorax is still the reigning champ at the movies!
The Dr. Seuss book-turned-flick earned $39.1 million in the last few days, topping John Carter's haul of $30.6 million. This is a huge blow to John Carter, which had a whopping $250 million budget and needed to open to at least $50 million.
Talk about a shot to the ego! Hope the sequel hasn't been signed off on just yet!
Party flick Project X dropped to third, but still raked in an impressive $11.6 million. Elizabeth Olsen's Silent House and the war film Act of Valor tied for fourth with $7.0 million a piece.
Does The Lorax have the momentum to make it three weeks in a row?! We're thinking yes … but only because we want to see Zac Efron promoting it more, more, more!

Because we all need a little sexy pick-me-up now and again!
The best part of Zac Efron being in The Lorax is even though you don't see a second of him in the film, he's been all over the place promoting the flick. Every day, all day long, people send us pictures from all the promo events he's been going to around the world.
And not once have we complained! Why the hell would we! LOOK AT HIM!!!
Zefron was his always remarkably handsome and charming self at the

We hope so!
GCB premiered on ABC last night with 7.6 million total viewers and a 2.2 rating in the adults 18-49 demo.
The Kristin Chenoweth-starring show definitely could have had a stronger debut, but we're thinking it will pick up! Audiences were probably too busy checking out The Lorax to give this new series their full and undivided attention!
On a more positive note,

The Lorax is box office gold!
Forty years after the Dr. Seuss book was written, the 3D film version of the story broke box office records this weekend, making it the biggest movie of 2012 so far!
Sure, it's just the beginning of March and yeah, obviously we have The Hunger Games to look forward to later this month, but as for now, animated movies win!
It pulled in $70.7 in its first couple of days, almost double than expected. It's also the biggest animated movie opening in two years.
With Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Betty White, and Danny DeVito voicing the film, the movie appeals to not just kids, but teens and adults too.
Did U check out The Lorax this weekend??
