Hulk, smash. That's what Captain America tells the Incredible Hulk to do in The Avengers, and that's what the Marvel Comics superhero mash-up did at the box office, smashing the domestic revenue record with a $200.3 million debut.
Here is the Weekend Boxoffice Chart for the weekend of May 4th to May 6th.
That's pretty insane. Didn't see it yet. Going to take the boys to see it in iMax Saturday. Yesterday me and the fam went at two and it was sold out. We live in a podunk town, and this was on a SUNDAY. Good for them though. Love me some Whedon. Now make Serenity 2!
Your numbers on Avengers may be low. Deadline.com is reporting that rival studios are telling them Avengers made closer to 207 million this weekend, not 200 million. Official numbers for it won't be released until this afternoon.

There are 21 movies that have made $100+ million during their opening weekend. You can find it at Box Office Mojo.
UPDATE: Deadline.com is now saying that Disney has officially announced that the Sunday take for Avengers was $56.8 million, bringing it a weekend total of $207.1 million.

As the rest of the world wakes up to capitalism (and english), move releases will get bigger and bigger. We'll see a $500m opening in our lifetime. Maybe even a billion by the time we're retirement age.

Going tomorrow with some friends to see it in IMAX 3D. Excited for this, though did have one end-scene sort of ruined for me. But, I can't say from watching the other films, that I wasn't expecting it.
