Analysts predict strong box office for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron

Disney’s marketing efforts for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron appears to be working well. BoxOffice.com, which forecasts entertainment results, looked at chatter on social media to determine the potential earning for the first of two Marvel films in 2015. Analysts predict a $217 million opening weekend and a $567 million domestic haul.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the sequel to one of the biggest films of all time, so this isn’t really going out on a limb. But it is below the $624 million domestic total of the first Avengers. The domestic market is softer today than it was back then, but the international market is much more robust, so that should compensate.

Other signs of a strong result. Other studios are staying away from Age of Ultron and have moved their movies to other weekends. New characters Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will draw in new fans and please die-hard enthusiasts. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been carefully tended so far and any change from that is unlikely.

What is your prediction for the opening weekend and domestic earnings of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron?

    if Age of Ultron is as good as the first Avengers my prediction is 225+ opening weekend and 750+ domestic, with a potential additional billion just from overseas (not that much of a stretch to be honest when the first film made 895M overseas) so it could total a little shy of 2 billion. There is hardly anyone who doesn’t have Age of Ultron as one of their top 2 most anticipated movies of the year with the other being Star Wars VII
