The Avengers is on pace to possibly become the highest grossing movie of all time. On the other hand, Dark Shadows didn’t even come close to some high expectations.
After its record-demolishing $207.4 million debut last weekend, The Avengers easily stayed atop the box office in its second frame, soaring to $103.2 million (a drop of only 50 percent) over the Friday-to-Sunday period. That figure crushes the second weekend box office record, which was formerly held by Avatar with its $75.6 million sophomore frame.
Incredibly, The Avengers’ 50 percent drop is the smallest second weekend decline of any film that achieved one of the Top 10 opening weekends of all time.
