Ladies and gentlemen, we have an uber-hit:
Still more countries are reporting grosses, and [Marvel's The Avengers] opened #1 in every foreign market. It doesn’t come out in the U.S. until May 4th but already it’s scooping up 60+% of all pre-sold movie tickets online and more than all the previous Marvel films combined. Overseas, Disney is reporting $178.4M box office in the film’s first 5 days of release in 39 territories.
The movie opens here this weekend. Just how big do you think it’s going to be…?
