Hey....Yup The Avengers is out on the 27th April 2012... and I booked 2 tickets (for me and my wife) on the 26th April 2012, it was a 20:50 (0850pm) show... and boy I just cant wait to watched this movie...
It was 0700pm I decided to be there 1hour and 50 minutes early.. have our dinner at 1B shopping Mall, then proceed to a long hour window shopping.
So the cinema is almost packed with cinema goers. especially when this is The Avengers we are talking about...
Anyway...its show time.. The movie starts with The current S.H.I.E.L.D Director Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) arrives at a remote S.H.I.E.L.D. research facility during an evacuation. The Tesseract, an energy source of unknown potential, has somehow been activated and able to self sustained it self even when the power source is forced to shut down and this opens a portal through space from which the exiled Loki (Tom Hiddleston) steps through. Loki takes the Tesseract and uses his abilities to take control of the minds of several S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel including Dr. Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard) and Agent Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) to aid him in his getaway.
The movie starts which I almost thought it was some how boring... then just when the fighting starts right after Loki was caught by the Avengers, which he purposely allowed himself to be caught, and when he manages to angered the HULK - Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Loki Manages to escape. during this time Thor (Chris Hemsworth) has already joint The Avengers team to help secure his brother Loki and bring him back to Asgard, but the attempt to safely brings Loki back to Asgard failed instead chaos has instead when Loki through his mind controlled Dr Selvigs with the power source from Stark Tower manages to reopens the portal thus allowing the Chitauri armada to invade earth..
But the attempt to invade earth failed by the Chitaury...The Avengers manages to stop this from happening. with IRON Man - Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) almost lost hi life manages to divert a nuclear missile release instructed by the other Directors /Council to targets at Manhattan to stop the invasion from escalating.
Anyway this movie is a must see movie... and I might be going a another round to watch The Avengers this time I'll be wathing the 3D version..
I would rate this movie a 5 star rating... This is also an Action Movie Plus a little bit of funny/comedy scene...
How does the Avengers Perform in term of Gross earnings?
(Sources from www.hollywood.com)
This is the second best single-day gross in box office history behind only 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2' and its opening day gross of $91,071,119.
The achievement is all the more impressive given that 'Potter' had record-breaking midnight grosses of $43.5 million while 'The Avengers' earned "only" $18.7 million in its midnight screenings.
Could 'The Avengers' have a shot at besting the opening weekend record held by 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2' of $169.2 million?
Well, a CinemaScore of A+ should generate sufficient word-of-mouth to propel the film to at least a spot in the top five openings of all-time. IMAX as always contributed big to this performance with 8% of the gross derived from their big screen locations.
The 3D showings were also a hit with an estimated 60% of the gross coming from these screens.
The film's worldwide results are equally impressive with another $30.3 million added to its international total on Friday and already $334.3 million total in the international marketplace.
Add on the $80.5 million on Friday in North America and the film has a $414.8 million worldwide total that will have it on track to exceed half a billion dollars in global box office by Sunday night!
Avengers Assemble indeed! Yes Indeed They are....
Check out their summary earnings...
The Avengers estimated results for Friday May 4:
- International : $30.3M
- Domestic : $80.5M
- Domestic GBO : $80.5M
- Int’l GBO : $334.3M
- Global GBO : $414.8M
