May 16 2012
It wasn't unexpected but it would appear that Joss Whedon's ensemble superhero epic Avengers Assemble has claimed the top spot for the third consecutive week at the UK Box Office.
The superhero blockbuster that brings together Marvel heroes Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) that has been breaking records at the worldwide box office beat off the comedy sequel American Pie: Reunion for the top spot.
The film has also crossed the $1 billion threshold at the global box office grossing more than superhero predecessors Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Hulk, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger.
