It's finally here, the big moment that Marvel Studios has been building towards since the founding and implementation of their film slate in 2006
. It began with Iron Man
and The Incredible Hulk
in 2008. Iron Man is the studios highest grosser to date.
Followed by Iron Man 2
in 2010 which opened huge and is the current highest opener for the studio at $133m.
In 2012 the studio added more pieces to the puzzle with Thor
and Captain America
Now, this May(earlier in some places
) Marvel Studios in conjunction with Disney
bring you Earth's Mightiest Heroes
: The Avengers
The film opens next week in a number of European markets and the embargo for reviews is lifted as of 4/20 leading up to opening night in France, UK and other select markets on 4/26. The film has had it's global premiere and debuts in North America on May 4. I'll try to post as many as I can find.
Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow answer the call to action when Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., initiates a daring, globe-spanning recruitment effort to assemble The Avengers team to defeat an unexpected enemy threatening global safety and security. Despite pulling together the ultimate dream team, Nick Fury and longtime confidant Agent Coulson must find a way to convince the Super Heroes to work with, not against each other, when the powerful and dangerous Loki gains access to the Cosmic Cube and its unlimited power.
FYI-The poll is public.
The Avengers is tracking to open in the upwards realm of $150 million
but $125m is the lowest I've seen. Should open big. The year 2012 has been good and 3 weeks out from it's North American release The Hunger Games was only tracking in the 120 realm and that blew up so a repeat could happen here as well!!
