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!
The only thing that celebrities seemed to be tweeting about on Saturday night (May 2) was the “fight of the century” between Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao.
Well, after all the hype for the fight, it seems that a ton of celebs were left unimpressed by the event and many of them tweeted their frustration. Some people even gave shout outs to UFC being better after the disappointing fight!
After the reporters’ tweets surfaced, it seemed that someone at HBO reversed the ban and they are now allowed to attend, but at least one of them has decided not to go.
“Despite this, and other outside parties generously offering me their seats, I will not attend the fight. I will also not let fear of retaliation prevent me from asking the tough questions the public deserves answers to in the future,” Rachel Nicols posted in a TwitLonger.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is about to compete in what is being considered the biggest fight of the century, so let’s meet the woman behind the man – girlfriend Doralie Medina!
Little is known about Doralie, other than that she met Floyd while working as a massage therapist when she lived in Las Vegas. They first met in 2011 after being introduced by a mutual friend and she began working for him as his massage therapist.
When Floyd broke up with his girlfriend Shantel Jackson in 2014, the pair reportedly started dating.
Doralie has a huge social media following and is known as “Bad Medina,” the same name as the lip-gloss line she started. She has only made a couple public appearances with Floyd, but you can see them on the red carpet together in the video below!
Floyd has been accused and served time for domestic violence over the years and we do not condone that behavior.
