The Avengers was the No 1 film at the box office this weekend
"The Avengers" made history at the box office this weekend, as the superhero epic had the biggest domestic debut ever -- not adjusting for inflation -- with its massive $200.3-million take.

The film appealed to both young and old, as 50% of the crowd was over the age of 25. Those who saw the movie, which features beloved characters like Iron Man, Captain America and the Hulk, loved it -- assigning it a perfect average grade of A+, according to market research firm CinemaScore.

The movie starring A-listers like Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson didn't disappoint overseas, either, where the picture has already collected $441.5 million in just 12 days of release.

So how did "The Avengers" become a worldwide event at the box office? Check out this week's box office video report for details.
