‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Final Box Office Hits $191.3 Million, Bigger Than Estimates

Avengers: Age of Ultron” debuted to a gargantuan $191.3 million last weekend, giving the superhero sequel an even bigger opening than initial estimates suggested.

The film already scored the second biggest debut of all time, after Disney pegged its opening bow at $187.7 million, but the revised projections give it a little extra padding. Overseas, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” also revised its weekend numbers northward, putting them at $168.8 million, as opposed to $168 million. Its global total stands at $631.1 million, and the film should top $1 billion worldwide by the time it ends its run.

Going into the weekend, analysts expected the film would top the $207.4 million haul posted in 2012 by the first film in the super-team series, with most estimates calling for an opening of $210 million or higher. However, the feverishly hyped match-up between boxers Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao, to say nothing of the Kentucky Derby and NBA playoffs, took a bite out of “Avengers: Age of Ultron’s” Saturday numbers. It appears to have made up the ground with a massive Sunday haul.

The comic book movie cost $250 million to produce and brings back stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner, with Joss Whedon returning as director.
