The Avengers is the first Hollywood film to garner more than 100 million-dollar in its second weekend of release. The film had already set a record in the US by collecting 207.4 million-dollar in the opening weekend. According to distributor Disney, The Avengers seem all set to top the 1 billion dollars mark this weekend in the global market.
The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon takes you on a roller coaster ride filled with out-of-the-world action sequences, mind boggling special effects and entertainment to the hilt.
Speaking about the wonderful response that his film The Avengers received, Whedon posted a public letter on his website which read, “Topping a box office record is super-dope.” He further went on to write, “People have told me that this matters, that my life is about to change. I am sure that is true. And change is good - change is exciting. What doesn't change is that I've had the smartest, most loyal, most passionate, most articulate group of - I'm not even gonna say fans. I'm going with 'peeps' - that any cult oddity such as my badself could have dreamt of.”
The Avengers starred Robert Downey Jnr, Samuel L Jackson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson in the lead.
