The Avengers have assembled with a vengeance.
The blockbuster film based on Marvel Comic’s iconic super team garnered a mind blowing $178.4 million in its overseas debut this week. The film opened in 39 territories, making and breaking records in many.
Now, the opening is only ninth best of all time for foreign territories, but it only opened in 70% of the territories. Some major markets are still in play, including China, Japan, and Russia. Only time will tell what the opening of the Avengers will be like here in the United States.
The Avengers opens in the US on May 4th, 2012.
