Avengers: Age of Ultron Remains on Top
In its second week at the domestic box office, Avengers: Age of Ultron earned an additional $77.2 million. That’s a drop of 59.6% from the previous week. That’s the second highest second week ever, just behind the original film. Domestically the film has earned $312.6 million so far, just 35.7% of its total.
Internationally, the film added $65 million to bring its total at the foreign box office to a total of $562.4 million. It has yet to open in Japan or China, so expect an impressive boost from those two markets.
The film has earned a total of $874.99 million so far and had an estimated budget of $250 million. It’ll likely be two more weeks before the film crosses the billion dollar mark, but it does have tough competition with the opening of Pitch Perfect 2, and Mad Max: Fury Road.
In other movie news Furious 7 continues to earn, adding $5.3 million domestically to its total this past weekend. The film has earned $338.4 million domestically, and worldwide is at $1.47 billion. The film has about $50 million to go to move into the third highest grossing film worldwide ever passing the original Avengers. There’s a chance it pulls it off. The big question too will be if Age of Ultron can catch up to the film and beat it to the finish line as top grossing film of the year.
In other comic movie news, Kingsman: The Secret Service continues to earn in its 13th week. The film added $235,000 domestically to bring its total to $127.2 million and worldwide total to $402.75 million.
