The Avengers continues to flex its superhero muscles at the U.K. box office after topping the chart for the third week running.
Joss Whedon's blockbuster film pulled in $6.5 million (£4.1 million) over the weekend (12-13May12), seeing off American Pie: Reunion, which stayed in second place after earning $4 million (£2.5 million).
It's yet another impressive haul for the superhero ensemble, which stars Robert Downey, Jr. and Scarlett Johansson, after it became the latest movie to make the ultra-exclusive $1 billion box office club in the U.S.
Tim Burton and Johnny Depp's Dark Shadows was a brand new entry in third place after earning $3.8 million (£2.4 million), while Zac Efron's The Lucky One dropped one place to fourth, taking $640,000 (£400,000).
Beauty and the Beast's $672,000 (£420,000) haul rounded out the top five.
