I could get away with it, but I'd have to miss a workout. Can't do that.

Avengers made over $200 million on opening weekend, that's a new record (so long Harry Potter ). It's also reached the $100 million, $150 million and $200 million milestones faster than any other film in history.

Just during it's first three days, it's already made more than Thor ($181m), Captain America ($176.6m) and Incredible Hulk ($134.8m) did during their entire theatrical runs. It hasn't surpassed Iron Man's grosses yet ($318.4m and $312.4m), but it most likely will by next weekend.

I like how the article talks about the "problem" of familiarizing non-comic book fans with characters like Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor. Even someone who has never picked up a comic book in their life is going to at least know who the first three are.

Jagger said he missed some stuff, too, because of the other people in the theatre. He said there were times when people were clapping and cheering and others when they were laughing too loud. He was kinda aggravated. lol. He wants to go again. Just us he said. Then he wants to see it again in 3D. They were sold out on the 3D showings when he went.

My mom wants to see it again. lol. She has never been into movies like that. I can't wait to see it!

I'm definitely planning to go see it in 3D, prolly tomorrow night. I will gladly pump my money into this giant to make it the highest grossing film ever!
