The Avengers Overshadows Dark Shadows

The Avengers easily took the top spot at the box office for the second weekend in a row, with about $103 million, making it the highest second weekend for any movie and also, the only movie to have a second weekend north of $100 million. The Avengers should also surpass The Hunger Games' $387 million by Monday or Tuesday, to become the highest grossing movie domestically.

In Worldy Avenger news, it has passed $1 Billion mark, and is now the highest grossing superhero movie of all time, just surpassing The Dark Knight's $1,001.9 million.

As for the Johnny Depp slash Tim Burton flick, Dark Shadows, it managed to pick up only $29 million, a bit of a disappointment, really.
