CLEVELAND -- Cleveland got its moment on the Hollywood big screen with the coast-to-coast release of Disney's $220 million film "The Avengers."
The film had its national rollout on 4,000 domestic screens in time for Friday night's big movie crowds. It could earn between $150 million and $170 million in its first weekend.
Some of the explosive fight scenes were done in Cleveland, with streets dressed up to look like New York City. The release gave extras hired in Cleveland the first chance to see themselves on screen.
"The Avengers" unleashes Marvel Studio superheros to save the world in 3-D and IMAX.
The Associated Press review gave the movie three and a half stars out of four.
