Ultron’s Box Office

Let us talk about the box office for Avengers: Age of Ultron. I was a little surprised at how low it was, considering the numbers I was seeing ranged from 210 on the low to up to 250 on the high end of the prediction. My prediction had it had easily 200 million for the opening. With Ultron not achieving the opening weekend record many hoped it would, I doubt it will take Avatar’s spot at the top of the box-office gross list. However, the question of will it reaches 2 billion remains. Prior to the release of the film, I did see many fanboys speculate about whether it would reach either benchmark. Depending on how Mad Max and Tomorrowland do at the box office, I do think that Ultron might be able to cross the 2 billion mark. If Mad Max and Tomorrowland come out and only do ok, as in either film opens less than 50 million, then I believe that Ultron will have the legs to cross the 2 billion mark considering how it grossed over 600 million worldwide in its first 12 days and it still has to open in lucrative Asian markets, like China. If either Mad Max or Tomorrowland were to open between 60 and 80 million, then I believe Ultron will stay just below the 2 billion mark but pass the previous movies 1.5 billion marks. I think Mad Max will perform similarly to Kingsman back in February and will find the foreign markets highly lucrative, Tomorrowland is a bit of a wild card and I don’t want to speculate on its performance this far out. If either film does indeed perform this well, then I believe that Ultron will lose its legs.
