Box Office Breakdown: The Avengers Smashes Competition… Again

The Avengers

It seems like packing a film chock-full of A-listers is worth the money spent on them.

The Avengers -- unsurprisingly -- took number one at the box office this weekend, beating Avatar's record for best second weekend with $103.2 million. The latest Tim Burton and Johnny Depp collaboration, Dark Shadows, opened at number two with $28.8 million while Think Like a Man dropped one spot to number three with $6.3 million. The Hunger Games was bumped down one spot to number four with $4.4 million while The Lucky One stayed put at number five with $4 million.
