The Avengers VS Batman ticket sales
Just as word began to spread of The Dark Knight Rises successfully reaching the 1 billion dollar mark, The Avengers has knocked it out of the spotlight by hitting 1.5 billion dollars.
After being re-released in American cinemas for the Labor Day weekend, The Avengers added another 620 million dollars to their domestic intake. This pushed there total profits to around 1.502 billion dollars worldwide, which means that The Avengers is now the third highest grossing movie of all time. Ahead of The Avengers are The Titanic and Avatar, both made by James Cameron. Though inflated ticket prices and the cost of 3D now mean that fewer tickets have to be sold to reach such high figures.
Will Batman be able to overtake The Avengers before he leaves cinemas or will he need to be re-released to catch up with the superhero team? Only time will tell, but he does have a lot of making up to do to knock them off the number three spot. Maybe if they had converted to 3D they’d be closer contenders, though personally I’m glad they didn’t. What do you think?
