On a weekend that had something for every one, from sports enthusiasts to movie goers, Marvel seems to have hit another home run with Avengers: Age of Ultron as it sets the second highest domestic opening in history. The movie based upon the Marvel comic book series took in a staggering $187.7 million, exceeding the initial haul of all their other movies excluding the 2012 Avengers film, which earned $207.4 million says Variety.com

Although it has managed to exceed the earnings of Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” which had been holding steady in second with $174.1 million, the newest superhero adventure has already earned $627 million worldwide in just 12 days.

Marvel Studios managed to vault this newest film to outrageous heights in comparison to films such as; “Age of Adaline” which came in a modest second in the earnings category with $6.7 million. “Furious 7” had slipped into third place with $6.1 million, which pushes its overall domestic earnings to $330.5 million and its worldwide ticket sales to $1.4 billion – the fourth highest total to date.

Other films such as “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” registered fourth with $5.5 million and the animated film “Home” rounded out the top five with $3.3 million.
