LOS ANGELES — "The Avengers" has already reached the billion-dollar mark at the worldwide box office.
The superhero blockbuster took in $103.2 million in the US to lead for a second-straight weekend, raising its domestic total to $373.2 million. With $95.4 million more overseas, "The Avengers" lifted its international receipts to $628.9 million for a worldwide haul of just over $1 billion.
The action smash from Disney's Marvel Studios easily fended off Johnny Depp and Tim Burton's vampire romp "Dark Shadows," which had a so-so domestic start of $28.8 million to finish a distant No. 2.
That's far below such past Depp-Burton collaborations as "Alice in Wonderland," which opened with $116.1 million, and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," which debuted with $56.2 million.
