BOX OFFICE: "The Avengers" takes 3rd Weekend ahead of sinking "Battleship"

Fastest to $400 million at the domestic box office.
Fastest to $1 billion worldwide grosses.
Ranks 10th on the All-Time box office gross charts.

Is there no stopping Marvel's The Avengers? Battleship, The Dictator, and What to Expect When You're Expecting all could not slow down The Avengers' ascent to box office glory. It is estimated the movie will cross the $450m mark by tomorrow. Official numbers will be available Monday.

I keep repeating just how happy I am that Joss Whedon and the whole crew behind the film finally got their due. This comes to show those studio moguls what happens when you leave the source material in the hands of those that respect and love it!

How high can this movie fly?
