Early tracking figures are in for Disney/Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and the film is reportedly tracking a little better than the first “The Avengers” movie at the same point before release.
The first “The Avengers” opened to $207.4 million in 2012, what is still the highest domestic box-office opening in history. If numbers continue this way, expected ‘Ultron’ to shatter that record and take the title.
A Fandango spokesperson says the sequel is significantly outselling the first film, and cinemas “around the country are sold out and managers are right now adding showtimes to meet the fan demand.”
The big question is, will the film be able to top the first’s $623.4 million total domestic gross? We’ll know soon. “Avengers: Age of Ultron” begins unrolling in cinemas around the world from next Friday, and opens in the United States on May 1st.
