'Avengers' Box Office Takes Big Hit from Fight Night Craze

'Avengers' Box Office Takes Big Hit from Fight Night Craze

While it is going to have one of the biggest opening weekends in movie history, The Avengers: Age of Ultron is reportedly taking a major hit at the box office due to everyone staying home and watching the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight!

After earning a massive $84.46 million on opening day, some industry experts were pegging the full weekend to hit as much as $210-$220 million.

Due to movie watchers spending their Saturdays watching all the sporting events on television – the NBA playoffs, the Kentucky Derby, and of course the big fight – the weekend gross estimates are coming in at $189-$191 million now, according to Deadline.

The first Avengers movie currently holds the record for the biggest opening weekend ever with $207 million. Even if the new film doesn’t beat the record, we have a feeling all the people staying home this weekend will eventually see the movie as audiences are loving it!
