Disney and Marvel Studios' The Avengers continues to make headlines as the film’s worldwide earnings, totaling $702.2 million at last count, crosses the $700 million mark in less than two weeks after its debut.
Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, crossed $700 million in only 13 days, one of the best showings of all time, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The tentpole feature has earned $226.4 million domestically, including a stellar Monday gross of $18.9 million, and $475.8 million internationally, where it rolled out a week before its May 4 domestic launch.
Thanks to a public holiday in Russia and the U.K. on Monday, Avengers took in $28.4 million at the foreign box office for the day.
Avengers has already surpassed the lifetime grosses of both Iron Man features, Thor and Captian America: The First Avenger.
