Mon, 14 May 2012 11:02a.m.
The Avengers has again made US box office history after becoming the first film to rake in US$100 million during its second weekend.
The Marvel action epic, which boasts an all-star cast of Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, and Scarlett Johansson, smashed records after hauling in a massive US$200.3 million in its first three days of release, besting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which grossed US$169 million when it hit theatres in July.
And the superhero blockbuster continued to impress for the second week in a row with earnings of US$103.2 million, fending off competition from Johnny Depp and Tim Burton's vampire horror comedy Dark Shadows, which had takings of US$28.8 million.
In third was Tyler Perry's Think Like a Man, which brought in US$6.3 million, and in fourth and fifth place respectively were Jennifer Lawrence's The Hunger Games (US$4.4 million) and Zac Efron's The Lucky One (US$4.1 million).
