The Avengers are creeping close to James Cameron's box office records after sailing past the $1.5 billion mark at the global box office.
The blockbuster hit the mark over the weekend - 17 weeks after its release.
It remains third all-time behind Cameron's films Avatar and Titanic, which have both made well over $2 billion. Avatar netted almost $2.8 billion worldwide, while Titanic raked in almost $2.2 billion.
