‘The Avengers’ had another epic weekend at number one, adding $55.1 million dollars to their golden pot, which is almost half a million in the U.S. alone. Disney’s biggest blockbuster continues to take over the world.
A big release for Memorial Day Weekend ‘Battleship’ opened in second place with $25.3 million dollars. This naval board game brought to life was rumored to beat the superheroes, but it obviously wasn’t nearly a threat.
Sacha Baron Cohen’s new comedy ‘The Dictator’, reached third place collecting $17.4 million dollars. His eccentric new character, which is willing to risk his life to keep democracy from reaching his dictatorship hasn’t been well received, but it seems that his followers gave him a chance.
