Avengers: Age of Ultron’s international box office numbers have grown to $44.8 million across 26 markets since opening on April 22nd.
The Avengers sequel earned $35.3 million yesterday, thanks in large part to the United Kingdom's and South Korea’s official premieres. U.K. box offices grossed $5.4 million—40% higher than Avengers’ opening night in 2012—and South Korean box offices netted $4.9 million.
Industry analysts project that even though just 55% of the foreign markets are debuting the film this weekend, it will make somewhere between $160-$175 million.
While the first Avengers made more than $1.5 billion globally back in 2012, many experts expect the film to far surpass that number, especially when it hits the U.S. market on May 1.
