Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ Midnight Box-Office

By Scott Mendelson

The unofficial midnight gross for Marvel’s The Avengers is $18.7 million. That’s the eighth-biggest midnight haul on record. The seven ahead of it are The Hunger Games ($19.7 million), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ($22 million), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part I ($24 million), The Twilight Saga: New Moon ($26 million), The Twilight Saga: Eclipse ($30 million), The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part I ($30 million), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II ($43 million). Obviously The Avengers was never going to top the midnight-grossers list, and its worth noting that the film earned more on its midnight debut that pretty much every prior Marvel Studios movie combined (Offhand, Thor earned $3.5 million, Captain America earned $4 million, and Iron Man 2 earned $7.5 million in their respective midnight debuts). It’s a larger midnight, just barely and likely due to inflation and the 3D-price bump, then The Dark Knight, which broke a midnight record four years ago with $18.5 million on its way to a $67 million opening day and a $158 million opening weekend (both records at the time).

SBIFF 2012: Virtuosos Include Hilarious Patton Oswalt, Shirtless Andy Serkis

On Friday evening, six actors were honored with Virtuoso Awards at Santa Barbara’s historic Arlington Theatre as part of 27th annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Three will soon be heading to the Oscars and three will not be. From the former category were best actor nominee Demian Bichir (A Better Life), best actress nominee Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), and best supporting actress nominee Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids), and from the latter category were Patton Oswalt (Young Adult), Andy Serkis (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), and Shailene Woodley (The Descendants). All were in attendance except for McCarthy, who apparently came down with a case of laryngitis. The other five were separately and then collectively interviewed by moderator Dave Karger of Entertainment Weekly.

BOX OFFICE: “HARRY POTTER” BEATS “TANGLED,” “SPEECH” BIG IN LIMITED

Brandon Gray of BoxOfficeMojo.com reports that “families were out in force” this holiday weekend, propelling “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” (which also won last weekend), “Tangled” (which had the second biggest Thanksgiving opening ever after “Toy Story 2“) and “Megamind” (which came in a distant third) to the top of the box-office standings. Oscar hopeful “The King’s Speech,” meanwhile, opened in extremely limited release on Friday — it played in just two theaters in Los Angeles and two theaters in New York — and still brought in nearly $350,000, good for the highest per-theater take of any film this year. Overall business, however, was “slightly down” from this same weekend last year, when “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and “The Blind Side” dominated the pack. The estimated receipts are…
