It does not come as a surprise but “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is looking to achieve yet another milestone at the box office. The superhero assemble has managed to sweep the audiences with its stellar performance including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Scarlett Johannson as Black Widow amongst others.
According to Forbes, as soon as the movie touches $400 Million in the US, it would become the 20th film in box office history to do so. In its whopping worldwide collections of $1.263 Billion, the movie has earned $403 Million domestically along with $200 Million in collections from China. The movie will achieve this in just 24 days of screening at the theatres after becoming the fourth fastest film to achieve a milestone like this after “Avatar”, “The Dark Knight” and “The Avengers”.
Hundreds of movies will make it to the coveted list if adjusted for inflation is taken into consideration. But a couple of movies might be excluded because of the change in ticket price that took place in the last couple of years. In another report by Forbes, after all the success that “Avengers: Age of Ultron” has garnered, crossing the billion dollar mark after 24 days of running is still not considered impressive as it lacked to achieve the coveted mark than other competing films and was left behind by “Furious 7” that was able to achieve the target in just about 17 days, it’s very own prequel “The Avengers” along with “Avatar” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II” were able to achieve the target in 19 days.
Now good milestones apart, it is of paramount importance that whether the movie be able to cross it’s predecessor’s global collections of $1.5 Billion or make it to the esteem club of $425 Million domestically will be hugely dependent on its collections from overseas that make up a major part of its revenue. Only time will tell.
