BOX OFFICE: ‘The Avengers’ Leaves ‘Battleship’ in its Wake

Written by Alexander Tucker   // 05/19/2012


The Avengers is still plodding along, leaving Battleship in its wake. It looks like this won’t be the summer of Taylor Kitsch after all. First john Carter fizzled and Battleship and Universal poorly underestimated the staying power of The Avengers.

 

Meanwhile The Dictator is limping through the weekend and and is only expected to bring a five day cume of $23m. The ensemble of has beens, ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’ delivered a runt $4.4m on Friday and projects to gross only $12m despite the wide 3,021 theaters release.

 

We are still waiting for the summer surprise, but over the last couple of months only the sure fire hits, “The Hunger Games” and The Avengers” have set records.
