Avengers: Age of Ultron is now the fifth highest grossing film of all time. So far the sequel has taken $1.348 billion worldwide.

Well done Joss and Marvel!
When it gets to 4th some people are going to be furious.
Not too shabby for a movie so many people didn't like.
Actually, it seems like the top 5 all have a pretty similar (85ish) audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. We just heard all the complaints. :)

Ricardo, I see what you did there.
Okay, my going to see it again the other night DID count in this.
I got yer back, Joss.
Only 205,685,714 more showings for me to see and Avatar is DONE!
It's now 81st domestically, when you adjust for inflation. The first Avengers lands at 27th in those rankings.

It's not getting to fourth. Age of Ultron plants its flag here, because it's going to struggle to $1.4b, let alone the $1.5b it'll take to overtake Furious 7 or The Avengers.
$1,4 billion should be a given with Japan still waiting in the wings. 'Avengers' did $45 million there. Based on how 'The Dark Knight'/'Rises', 'Avengers' and 'Iron Man 3' performed (comparing both the opening- as well as week 1-5 against the total) 'Ultron' should end up at around $460-465m domestically. Internationally, a billion seems within reach. If Japan does $40 million, only $50 million would be missing from all the other markets combined. I wouldn't be surprised if at the end of the day it crossed $1,5 billion worldwide.
