LIke a CNN newsfeed, only sexier. The latest news, projects, and random bits involving Robert Downey Jr. -- actor, husband, father, part-time wizard.

The Friday opening number is now $80.5 million because late shows were coming on strong.

That includes a whopping $18.1M midnights. So Disney says the domestic total is on pace for a record-setting $175M through Sunday from 4,349 U.S. and Canadian locations, including 3,364 plays in 3D. This is the biggest ever domestic weekend opening. (Past Warner Bros’ 3D Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 which stll holds the Friday opening record of $91M but no longer the first weekend record of $169M.)

The worldwide total isn’t yet updated but it’s sure to be $500+M with this weekend’s addition of China, Russia, and of course North America.

And, just to rub it in, the well-reviewed Avengers also received a rare ‘A+’ CinemaScore from American audiences.
