You all know that we’ve done a lot of coverage for Avengers: Age of Ultron in the past weeks. It wasn’t a gift of foresight but the numbers, movie has made in its first night is not a stunner!
Some analysts predict that this franchise only could reach a solid $2 billion globally before leaving theaters.With more than $300 million already banked in the foreign box office, many expect Age of Ultron to blow every Avengers figure out of the water. The Avengers only achieved $1.5 billion.
Earning $27.6 million during Thursday night 7:00 p.m. showings, Age of Ultron ran laps around 2012’s The Avengers, which only made $18.7 million on late night previews. The $27.6 million places Ultron’s preview night as the sixth highest-grossing in the U.S., with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow: Part 2 leading the list at $43.5 million.
