So, yeah, The Avengers made a lot of money this weekend. A lot more money, actually, to the tune of over $1 billion worldwide. Oh man, with that kind of dough, I would buy SO much shawarma. Elsewhere, Tim Burton's Dark Shadows finished second with a disappointing $28.8 million. To be fair, that's only disappointing if you expected a good movie, which Dark Shadows was not -- I'm getting a perverse amount of pleasure from the fact that this $150 million (!) gothic turd will have a hard time making its budget back. When reached for comment, star Johnny Depp replied by making a dumb expression.

Think Like a Man and The Hunger Games finished third and fourth with $6.3 million and $4.4 million, respectively, while $4 million worth of people paid to see The Lucky One. Domestically speaking, it's only $320 million behind The Avengers. Get working, Sparks fans!
