Last weekend history was made. It did not mark the start of a war, or the discovery of some vital new technology, instead tens of thousands of people stood in line for a movie. Altogether, these people spent approximately 207 million dollars to see this movie. This is far and away the greatest total for a single movie in a single weekend. This record-breaking movie is Marvel's The Avengers, and I, quite unwittingly, was one of the many who helped it make history.
