In May 2012, the superhero comic adaption <i>Avengers</i> opened worldwide raking in $200.3 million, an unprecedented kickoff in the box office. After theatrical release, the highest grossing movies continue to generate revenue through home DVD sales and rentals, TV broadcasting, and merchandising.
