Avengers: Age of Ultron went two-for-two at the box office and did it in impressive fashion. Joss Whedon’s sequel added another $77.2 million to what it made last week and brought its total haul to $312.5 million.
Only The Avengers and The Dark Knight got to the magic $300 million in 10 days like Avengers: Age of Ultron has. Those are some impressive numbers.
The only real new movie to be released this weekend, Hot Pursuit, came in second. The Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon starring buddy comedy took in $13.3 million in its debut weekend. That film was followed by The Age of Adaline in third. The Blake Lively starring fantasy-romance added another $5.6 million to bring its total to $31.5 million.
Fourth place belonged to Furious 7. The film that is the highest grossing of the year (for now) added another $5.3 million to bring its cume to $338.4 million.
Closing out the top five was Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 with $5.2 million.
Serious competition arrives next week in the form of Pitch Perfect 2 and Mad Max: Fury Road. Can they stop Ultron?
