By Daniel Gates



It was a MASSIVE, record-breaking weekend for The Avengers.

The long-awaited, hugely hyped and critically praised superhero extravaganza broke the box office record with a debut of $207 million, obliterating the competition.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($169 million) was the current all-time record-holder, but The Avengers topped it, along with The Dark Knight ($158 million) and The Hunger Games ($152 million).

Meanwhile, coming in a very distant second was Think Like A Man with a weekend take of $8 million.

Nabbing third was The Hunger Game with $5.7 million.

Coming in fourth and fifth places were The Lucky One and Pirates! Band of Misfits with $5.5 million and $5.4 million, respectively.

Round out the Top 10 were The Five-Year Engagement ($5.1 million), The Raven ($2.5 million), Safe (2.5 million), Chimpanzee ($2.4 million) and The Three Stooges ($1.8 million).
