Marvel/Disney’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” has crossed the $250 million mark internationally in its first eight days of release.

Opening last weekend, “Age of Ultron” debuted to a stellar $201.2 million across 44 foreign territories. It adds Mexico and Spain on Thursday along with several other markets.

The sequel opens in the U.S. on Friday amid expectations that it can top the first “Avengers” film’s record-breaking $207.4 million domestic bow in 2012. The movie went on to earn over $1.5 billion globally.

Directed by Joss Whedon, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” carries a $250 million pricetag. Despite currency fluctuations, the second film has been exceeding the first installment by 44% in today’s dollars.

Robert Downey Jr. stars in the film alongside Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo.

    Yes and it’s a mess….. Sooner or later Marvel people are going to crave character and story. At least Gaurdians got it right!

  2. Candice says:

    These Pictures are bigger than ever, because teens and younger have no HEROES to look up to, with all the idiot actors out there, drug rehabs, drug induced suicides, etc-etc.

    Another reason why “American Sniper,” performed so well.

    Bigger than Star Wars!!!!!

    • Cloud City Social Director says:

      If you adjust STAR WARS box office figures to current $$$ rates, THE AVENGERS ranks wayyy down the list. STAR WARS 7 will out-perform AVENGERS big time.
