“The Avengers” has already passed the total foreign box office gross for “Captain America,” which earned $192 million.

Opening May 4 in the U.S., “The Avengers” has a good chance of surpassing “The Hunger Games” as the largest domestic opening of the year. Lionsgate’s “Hunger Games” opened to a boffo $155 million at the end of march.

Disney and Imax also announced Thursday that “The Avengers” will open in 275 Imax locations in the U.S.
