The movie has already made $300+M internationally already, and is expected to make a killing Stateside too, tracking off the charts in every category and with every demographic. But according to Deadline, The Avengers was unsuccessful in beating the $40+M record set by Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2..
