Box Office: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Hits $875.3 Million Globally

No one can keep pace with the Avengers.

Cinema’s preeminent superhero team towered over the competition, as “Avengers: Age of Ultron” topped the foreign box office this weekend with an estimated $68.3 million. That brought its global total to $875.3 million.

With a China opening scheduled for next Tuesday, the Disney/Marvel release should pass $1 billion at some point next week. Its worldwide haul is already ahead of the majority of Marvel titles, besting the lifetime grosses of “Captain America” ($371 million), “Thor” ($449 million), “Iron Man” ($583 million), “Iron Man 2” ($622 million), “Thor: The Dark World” ($645 million), “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” ($714 million) and “Guardians of the Galaxy” ($774 million).

If the film is able to match or surpass 2012’s “Marvel’s The Avengers” and its $1.5 billion bounty, it will be largely because of foreign audiences. Domestically, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” has earned $312.9 million, which trails its predecessor by more than $60 million at a similar point in its life cycle.

Beyond “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” it was a quiet week at the foreign box office. Universal’s “Furious 7” was a distant second, bringing in $19.6 million and pushing its total to almost $1.5 billion.

Sony’s “Chappie” took third place with $9.8 million. The science-fiction thriller has made a disappointing $94.8 million since debuting in March.

Universal’s “Pitch Perfect 2” got a jump on its domestic debut next week, opening in first place in Australia and New Zealand and bringing in $8.8 million in those two territories.

Fifth place went to DreamWorks Animation’s “Home” with $6 million, pushing its haul to a robust $342.1 million.
