As expected, Marvel Studios 'Avengers Assemble' has already proven to be quite the box office smash upon it's release in the UK, something which bodes very well for it's much-anticipated US release next Friday.
The film has taken an incredible £2.5 million at the UK box office on its opening day alone as fans flocked to see the hugely anticipated superhero movie and helped make it the 3rd biggest Thursday opening of all time (behind Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in first and second place respectively).
The huge demand across the country for the film has also led to additional screenings being shown to keep up with demand.
It has also broken records across Europe, and in Australia it became the second highest opening of all time behind only Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
UK press are already raving about the film, with The Daily Star labelling it as "the best comic book movie ever made, 10/10" and The Times going on to say "Avengers Assemble has emerged as the smartest, wittiest and most unapologetically entertaining comic-book adaptation of the modern era, 5 stars".
