The Avengers Smash Box Office Records

The Boy who Lived just died at the hand of the Avengers, at least when it comes to the box office opening weekend.

With a tally of $641.8 million made elsewhere, the Joss Whedon film has scored around $842.1 million up to this point.

Iron Man, the Black Widow and the rest of the superheroes left little business to the rest of the films, with Think Like a Man coming up in second place with $8 million.
