“Avengers: Age Of Ultron” Expected To Break Box Office Records; $200 Million Plus Opening Predicted
If you are planning to see “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” opening day, it may be a good idea to buy your tickets in advance. According to Deadline.com, “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” is significantly outselling the first Avengers movie. MovieTickets.com is also reporting that advance ticket sales in the U.S. are “six times” greater than that of “The Avengers.”
Most theaters around the country are already sold out and theater owners are adding additional shows to keep up with the increasing demand. You can currently purchase advance tickets online through FANDANGO.com and also directly through multiple theater chains. Although “Age Of Ultron” is slated to open on May 1st, most theaters will be having their first shows start as early as 7PM on Thursday, April 30th.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron, directed by Joss Whedon, may beat Marvel’s The Avengers (also directed by Whedon) as the highest opening ever. After debuting with $207.4M at 4,349 theaters The Avengers ended its domestic run at $623.4M becoming the third-highest-grossing film in North American behind Jim Cameron’s one-two punch of Avatar ($760.5M in 2009) and Titanic ($658.7M in 1997).
