Maybe it was the NBA Playoffs, or maybe, the endless amount of BBQs going on, or just the choice of movies out. Whatever it was, the weekend box office recorded the worst Memorial Day weekend numbers in 17 years, said reports.

This happened despite two new major releases, “Prince of Persia” and “Sex and The City 2”, both failing to top the weekend’s choice of films.

Instead, it was “Shrek Forever After”, winning its second weekend in a row with $55.7 million over the long weekend.

The second spot was a close race. “Prince of Persia,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal, landed at #2 with an opening of $37.8 million; while the highly anticipated “Sex and The City” sequel debuted at #3 with $37.1 million.

The Avengers are one of the most popular and powerful super-teams in comics. Published by Marvel Comics, the team began its run in September 1963.

How did the Avengers get their start?

The team came together by accident; supervillain Loki tried to kill Norse god Thor by luring him into combat with the Hulk. However, the conflict also drew in Iron Man and two lesser-known superheroes Ant-Man and the Wasp. In typical superhero fashion, the five of them fought each other before joining forces to defeat Loki. They decided they worked pretty well together as a team and called themselves the Avengers.
