Box Office: ‘Avengers’ Sequel Launches with $9.5 Million Overseas

Disney’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” has started to conquer the world. The Marvel tentpole, which opens May 1 in the U.S., earned $9.5 million in its first day of release at the international box office.

The superhero tentpole is expected to earn nearly $175 million overseas this weekend.

On Wednesday, it launched in 11 foreign territories, including Italy and the Philippines.

In France, it was the highest opening day of the year with $2.7 million.

Directed by Joss Whedon, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” rolls out to 55% of the international market on Thursday, including South Korea, UK, Brazil, Australia, Russia, Germany and Argentina.

The first “Avengers” $1.5 billion worldwide–almost $900 million of which came from foreign ticket sales.

“Ultron” is expected to surpass the original’s colossal earnings around the globe.

Next weekend, when it debuts in the U.S., it will likely eclipse the record-setting $207.4 million to which the first “Avengers” debuted in 2012.

Produced by Marvel’s Kevin Feige, the superhero mashup stars Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner.
