‘Avengers’ smashes record: $200.3 million debut

Hollywood’s superhero summer has arrived with a vengeance.Avenger movie

The Marvel Comics mash-up “The Avengers” launched the summer movie season with a $200.3 million opening weekend domestically, by far the biggest debut ever.

If distributor Disney s revenue estimate Sunday holds when the final weekend count is released Monday, “The Avengers” would be the first movie ever to haul in $200 million in a single weekend.

A $200 million total for every movie in release is considered a great weekend for the business as a whole, so “The Avengers” redefines the standards for a blockbuster debut.

“The Avengers” shot past the previous record of $169.2 million for the debut of last year s “Harry Potter” finale.

With $441.5 million overseas since last week, “The Avengers” worldwide total climbed to $641.8 million.
