BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: And we now know what a lot of you did this weekend. You went to see " The Avengers ." We know this because it set a big new record for opening weekend box office. Brought in $207 million, smashing the old record held by " Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ." Because it already opened overseas, this movie has already made over a half billion dollars without breaking a sweat, and over half of the folks who saw it this weekend in the US paid extra to see it in 3-D.
