Briefly: Marvel’s The Avengers is currently $40 million away from being the second highest grossing domestic film of all-time. However, playing on only 142 screens last week makes it damn near impossible to reach that mark. So with a weak set of films opening wide this weekend, Disney has decided to re-release Joss Whedon‘s superhero epic for one week only, August 31 through September 6. The goal? Fill the weekend’s distinct lack of wide releases skewed to young men, and maybe make a run at James Cameron’s number two box-office record.
Check theaters for listings. Thanks to Facebook. The Avengers hits Blu-ray September 25.
