‘Avengers’ continues hot trek overseas

Disney-Marvel pic has earned $36 million through Thursday

Continuing to display B.O. superpowers, Disney and Marvel’s “The Avengers” dominated the international box office again on Thursday, bringing the pic’s B.O. total to $36 million in 25 territories since its rollout Wednesday.

The Joss Whedon-helmed tentople scored a $4.1 million bow in the U.K. Thursday, the third-largest Thursday opening ever in the territory. In Australia, “Avengers” has claimed $8.2 million in two days of release.

Other European locales drew impressive results as well.

In France and Italy, box office for the film has reached $4.9 million and $4.6 million, respectively, while the pic’s German bow of $1.4 million on Thursday marked the country’s best opening day of 2012.

“Avengers,” which is beginning its foreign launch a week ahead of the pic’s U.S. arrival May 4, is following in the footsteps of U’s “Battleship,” which debuted internationally nearly a month before its U.S. release and has already grossed $131 million in two weeks.

Disney is expecting the estimated $170 million-budget “Avengers” to continue to perform well in the coming weeks, as it’s the only major tentpole to hit the foreign B.O. scene until “Men in Black 3” arrives in late May.

Featuring an all-star ensemble of Marvel heros including Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, Disney’s “Avengers” is based on the comicbooks by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
