“Avengers: Age Of Ultron” Opening Expected To Pass $200 Million

When it comes to opening weekend records, 2012’s “Marvel’s the Avengers” holds the current weekend with its record-setting $207.4 million debut. But that film’s reign could come to an end in just a few weeks when “Avengers: Age of Ultron” opens in theaters. According to early tracking estimates, “Age of Ultron” is expected to debut with a numbers well above the $200 million line, pushing it past both 2013’s “Iron Man 3” (which earned $175 million during it’s opening weekend) and the first “Avengers” film.

Variety notes that analysts have started tracking the buzz surrounding “Age of Ultron,” which includes massive interest on social media — where early chatter is outpacing both the first “Avengers” and last year’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” — and record-breaking views numbers for the new film’s trailers.

“It’s a movie that people are going to definitely go see,” said BoxOffice.com vice president and chief analyst at Phil Contrino to Variety. “There’s almost nothing major opening between ‘Furious 7′ and when the film comes out, so there’s a lot of pent-up demand and a ton of goodwill from the first movie.”

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” opens on May 1.
