The Avengers Passes $600 million

Marvel’s “The Avengers” is expected to cross the $600 million U.S. domestic box-office mark today, its 54th day of release, making it only the third film in history to reach that milestone.

It now sits only behind “Avatar” with $760.5 million and “Titanic” with $658.6 million. Though still earning solidly, the final tally is expected to end up around the $630-640 million mark.

Outside the States, the film has raked in $837.9 million thus far – extremely impressive but not as significant a hit as “Avatar” or “Titanic” which took in $2.0 billion and $1.5 billion respectively in foreign markets alone.

In terms of non-US grosses it’s currently fourth highest in history behind those two Cameron films and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” which scored $947 million overseas.

With the added domestic total back in though its current worldwide haul stands at a whopping $1.4 billion.
