Marvel's Avengers smashes NZ box office on opening day

It should be no real surprise that the Marvel's Avengers has opened to rather large box office numbers.


In figures just released, it's been revealed that on its opening day, according to Disney's release -

"Marvel’s The Avengers has smashed the New Zealand box office on its opening day of release with a record breaking NZD$1,019,844.00. The result puts the film at the number one position of all time openings surpassing the current holder Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Part 2 (NZD$975,109).

The stunning opening makes Marvel’s The Avengers the biggest opening day in New Zealand history and
represents the number one Disney Studios opening day, ahead of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (NZD$513,290.00).

“The most anticipated blockbuster for the year Marvel’s The Avengers has really lit up the box office with this stunning opening – Disney and Marvel’s biggest yet in New Zealand. The Avengers is testament to fabulous storytelling combined with a blockbuster cast and world-renowned director - this superhero epic is a must-see for all New Zealand fans and film lovers!,” said John Cracknell, senior vice president & managing director The Walt Disney Company, Australia and New Zealand."

And by way of celebrating, here's a couple of Avengers featurettes for you.
