    For Wednesday's box office The Avengers pulled in another $13,612,910 for a total of $257,627,807!
    It set a new record for fastest to $250 million (6 days). Up next for it's next record to break is The Dark Knight's fastest to $300 million done in 10 days.

    Regarding Box Office Guru's guess for $98 million this weekend, that's probably about spot on. Most movies in their second weekend fall anywhere from 40%, 50%, and even 60% depending on how popular/well recieved the movie is. $98 million is more than a 50% drop ($207 million opening) so I can see The Avengers possibly pulling in another $100 million or slightly less this weekend.

    We'll probably get 15 or less of those, TBH with you. Still, Yeah... Avengers (and any movie just as good, if not just good enough), you get those ******* legs right now and put this Michael Bay-esque noise in its place, ok?!

    $44.5M for on Saturday The Avengers according to Nikki.

The Dark Knight Rises, IMO, will definitely have to rise up to the challenge in July to both top $200 million in a single weekend, and also outpace The Avengers' opening. Opening in July should help The Dark Knight Rises though.
    You think The Mouse is pleased?

    Btw, does Disney get all the revenue this time, or does Paramount still get a percentage of the box office? I mean the Paramount logo is on the posters and appears during the opening of the film.

    Dark Shadows is failing hard.
    Here's the deal, I'm the best there is. I wake up in the morning and I urinate excellence. And nobody can hang with my stuff. I'm just a big hairy American winning machine.

    I'm very humble, too.
