    Weekend Box Office: 'The Avengers' Crosses The $1 Billion Mark In 19 Days; Registers First-Ever $100 Million Second Weekend

    Arthouse Audit: 'Marigold' Is 'Avengers' for Seniors, 'First Position' and 'Bernie' Score

    While it didn't have 24-hour shows at some locations, and didn't set any records, just as "The Avengers" raised the bar for 2012 wide-release films, Fox Searchlight's "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" is showing the best results for specialized/older audience films since 2011's late-year openings.
