The Hulk and friends seem set to smash Harry Potter's opening weekend box office record

The Avengers‘ $80.5 million opening day box office tally is second only to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, which earned $91.1 million on its opening day last summer. Still, Box Office Mojo thinks The Avengers has a good shot at beating Deathly Hallows‘ weekend total of $169.2 million.

The website, which monitors movie domestic and international earnings, thinks there is a chance The Avengers‘ openign weekend grosses will reach $200 million by Sunday night.
