We reported last month that Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron crossed the $1 billion mark worldwide, just 24 days after it first debuted in select international territories on April 22. Today we have word that the superhero sequel will cross another box office milestone, becoming just the fifth movie in history to make over $900 million internationally. Avengers: Age of Ultron joins Furious 7 ($1.15 billion and counting), Titanic ($1.52 billion), Avatar ($2 billion) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 ($960 million).
The $900 million international tally also puts it ahead of its predecessor, Marvel's The Avengers, internationally. The 2012 superhero ensemble earned $895.2 million internationally and $623.3 domestically for a global haul of $1.51 billion. Avengers: Age of Ultron has currently taken in $1.327 billion globally, which is the sixth highest of all time. Its domestic total is at $428.6 million, with $899.3M internationally, which will cross the $900 million plateau later today.
Director Joss Whedon's superhero sequel is currently playing in 91 international markets. China is currently the top overseas market with $229.1 million, followed by Korea ($82.1 million), the U.K. ($71.9 million), Mexico ($49.9 million) and Brazil ($46.6 million). Avengers: Age of Ultron will debut in its last international territory, Japan, on July 4. Do you think Avengers: Age of Ultron can surpass Marvel's The Avengers' $1.51 billion global haul?
