'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!
