It's already made more than $200 million in foreign countries, and Marvel's latest film is expected to make a big splash in the United States, too.
"The Avengers" superhero blockbuster opens Friday, and theater in Rosemont will host a midnight showing the night before.
"Avengers will be opening Thursday, May 3rd (Midnight show) at ALL West Wind Drive Ins," the movie theater chain said on its Facebook page. "Regular schedule starting Friday May 4th."
Bloomberg News reports that the film is expected to have one of the biggest opening weekends of 2012.
For Rosemont residents heading out to see the movie, the temperature Thursday night is expected to be around 50 degrees, with a slight chance of rain tapering off before 11 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.
Admission to the drive-in theater is $7, according to its website.
