'The Avengers' Tops The List Of The 5 Biggest Opening Weekends

By on May 7, 2012 in ArticlesEntertainment

Odds are that either you or someone you know saw The Avengers over the weekend. That's because the Marvel Studios/Disney mega-blockbuster made more over the weekend than any other movie ever released. This could prove to be one of those big summer movies that changes everything, like Jaws or Star Wars – or maybe this was just inevitable thanks to the massive Marvel lead-up. Whichever proves to be the case, it should be on top in terms of cold, hard numbers for a little while at least. Here are the five biggest opening weekends so far.

Spider-Man 3

The Hunger Games

The Dark Knight

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

The Avengers
