Avengers Assemble Takes In Massive £2.5 Million On First Day

Marvel's epic superhero super-group movie The Avengers Assemble, starring Scarlett Johansson, recorded the third largest opening of all time in the UK when it opened on Thursday (April 26th) according to The Nme. The comic book adventure took in a massive £2.5 million on its opening day alone and is set to continue its impressive run as it has been draped in esteem from critics and audience alike. The only films above the latest Marvel romp in terms of opening day takings are Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix and the largest being Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith.

The Joss Whedon picture has already broken launch day records in New Zealand and Taiwan and is expected to perform just as well when it is released in North America on May 4th where it will be simply titled The Avengers.

The superhero adventure will see the group of superhumans take on a host of super-villains, headed by Valhalla native and brother of Thor; Loki. The Marvel Comics movie stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, JEREMY RENNER AND SAMUEL L JACKSON as the eponymous Avengers.
