It’s been a pretty slow weekend news wise. No one is doing anything of note. But at least we still have the weekend box office report and, no surprise, The Avengers came out on top of the box office weekend figures making over $100 million and now has passed the $1 billion gross mark worldwide. The film is now the 11th highest grossing film of all time worldwide and will only go further up on the list. But it still has a way to go before beating the top two, Avatar and Titanic. Damn that James Cameron!
