Avengers: Age Of Ultron Has Second Largest US Opening

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Disney has a new Prince Charming of the box office with sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron.


Movie industry analyst Paul Dergarabedian, at Rentrak, said the Disney/Marvel was the second biggest opening weekend in Hollywood history, sandwiched in between two other Disney/Marvel releases: gMarvelsf The Avengersh at $207.4 million, and gIron Man 3 at $174.1 million.


gThis is an astonishing feat, considering the level of competition this weekend from the world of sports,h Dergarabedian said, citing the welterweight boxing match fight in Las Vegas, the Kentucky Derby and the NBA playoffs.


In an unusual move, gUltronh opened overseas two weeks ahead of North America, and it has grossed $627 million in 12 days of global release, Rentrak reported.
