Avengers: Age Of Ultron continues to bring in big bucks with no sign of stopping anytime soon. The superhero ensemble film of Marvel’s Avengers had big expectations for the sequel and it just passed the $1 billion mark.
It is a big deal for any film that makes $1 billion since there are not many that have done it, although this one may be one of the least surprising of all of them. The first film surprisingly did better at the box office over the opening weekend, but Avengers: Age Of Ultron continues to top the box office and will likely do so for a while.
It is an all-star team of sorts for Marvel superheroes and the cast is made up of all-star actors as well including Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johannson, Don Cheadle, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and more including James Spader as the villain, Ultron.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron should stay at the box office for several more weeks with no other major films set to be released for a bit. It is the 8th Disney film to cross the billion milestone and everyone knew it was bound to happen eventually once it finally came out.
The last film to cross the $1 billion mark was Furious 7, the seventh film in the Fast and Furious franchise. Furious 7 got even more people to see it than normally would as many people wanted to see Paul Walker’s final appearance in the series. In addition to the film itself, Wiz Khalifa’s song “See You Again” from the soundtrack has broken records and remained at the top of the charts since its release.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron has actually been in the global market longer than the US after opening in Europe first, and reached the expected feat of $1 billion 24 days after its global release.
