Avengers sets second box office record

Superhero movie The Avengers has topped the US and Canadian box office for the second week in a row, taking $103.2m (£64m), studio estimates suggest.
The film is now the first in Hollywood history to ring up more than $100m in its second weekend of release.
It is the movie’s second record, after scoring the biggest-ever US opening weekend, with takings of $207.4m.
The blockbuster sees a team of Marvel comic-book heroes team up to fight an extra-terrestrial threat.
Among the cast are Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth – who have appeared in previous Marvel movies as Iron Man, Black Widow and Thor, respectively.
Globally, the film looks set to top the $1bn mark this weekend, distributor Disney said on Sunday.
The Avengers’ performance this week left Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s Dark Shadows standing in the dust.
Their spoof horror movie, which opened on Friday, made an otherwise-respectable $28.8m, taking second place at the box office.
Romantic comedy Think Like a Man finished in third place with ticket sales of $6.3 million.
