Marvel's Avengers Assemble took an impressive £15.8 million at the UK box office at the weekend - making it the biggest Disney three-day opening of all time and the biggest superhero movie opening of all time.

The film - which was also the second biggest four-day weekend ever (behind Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix with £16.5 million) - has already taken more than the entire UK box office runs of The Hulk (£8.29m), Captain America (£9.5m) and Thor (£14.05m).

The international box office totalled $178.4 million, with Avengers Assemble opening at number one in all 39 countries released so far.

Those seeing their biggest opening weekends of all time included Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, Central America, Bolivia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, New Zealand and The Philippines.
