The Avengers is now the third highest grossing film worldwide, sending Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 to fourth placing


Marvel’s The Avengers, a single film assembling a group of Marvel’s superheroes successfully climbed to the top three placing in the list of worldwide’s highest grossing films recently. The movie is now on 3rd place with grossing of over 1.355 billion, crossing over the previous film in the 3rd place; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Harry Potter’s final film did extremely well last year with grossing of over 1.328 billion, ending the famous franchise of our generation with favourable reviews and huge box office income. However, it is still no match compared to this year’s The Avengers. So now, Harry Potter’s final film jumped to 4th place while Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon remained at fifth place in total grossing of over 1.123 billion. The Avengers became one of the only twelve films in history that crossed over 1 billion mark in grossing.

The Avengers is still now in theatres worldwide and its grossing would only stops probably months later. There are still plenty of time for this movie to gain even more, hoping that people would go for it again and again in the cinema. It has already broken several records like having the biggest grossing on opening weekend, fastest film to reach 100 million, 200 million, and so on. It even ties with Avatar and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 inthe record of 19 days as the fastest to reach 1 billion in revenue. That is an impressive record, and I bet people that are involved in the movie would be very proud and happy over that outcome and it seems that their target has been reached, not only in total grossing, but also in reception by the public which is mostly positive.

But there’s a catch, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 and Avatar both opened internationally and in the US on the same week while that wasn’t the case with The Avengers. This superhero film had been out in the US for just 10 days when $1 billion was reached. So while technically The Avengers has to share the title for fastest to hit $1 billion with the other two, its performance was more impressive. Anyway, with The Avengers hitting $1 billion, it’s the 5th film to do so for Disney. Now consider this, no other studio has more than two billion grossers (Fox and Warner Bros.). Marvel Studio is now planning for a sequel to The Avengers, after looking at the much hype and success of a movie like this can deliver. I’m looking forward to that. Hope it will come very soon.

So looking its box office performance  now, what do you think would be the final grossing figure of The Avengers? Now it stands at a whopping 1.355 billion, only behind two films, Avatar and Titanic on which both are directed by James Cameron and had grossed over 2 billion respectively. That seems to be a figure almost impossible to be defeated. Now, Titanic is back on the big screen in 3D and its grossing is once again increasing. But that wouldn’t be a lot. But still it grossed an extra few hundred million as of current that brings the movie beyond 2 billion mark, making the Avatar not alone in the 2 billion’s club anymore.

Could The Avengers gets into 2 billion of grossing also? It seems a bit unlikely and I think it will end most probably with 1.5 billion with maximum of 1.6 billion, as a lot of people have had watched the film already. Movie-goers now would then go for other new interesting releases like Snow White and the Huntsman, Madagascar 3, Prometheus, and some others soon. But still, The Avengers did a very fantastic job in box office and it’s a good movie. I think it would remains the highest grossing film for this year. Being in top 3 is an awesome accomplishment already. Congratz to the movie for having such successful achievement.
