'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Scores $217.6M in Five Days After $13.1M Tuesday GrossMay 06, 2015 12:31 PM

Avengers: Age of Ultron took in $13.13 million on Tuesday to dominate the daily box office for a fifth consecutive day. The blockbuster superhero sequel from Disney and Marvel was down a slim 1 percent from Monday's performance. In comparison, 2012's Marvel's The Avengers fell 6.5 percent on its first Tuesday to gross $17.68 million, while 2013's Iron Man 3 was essentially unchanged on its first Tuesday to take in $11.29 million. Avengers: Age of Ultron has grossed $217.63 million in its first five days. While that is softer than was widely expected, it still represents the second largest unadjusted five-day start of all-time (behind only The Avengers). Avengers: Age of Ultron is running 11 percent behind the $244.01 million five-day start of The Avengers and 11 percent ahead of the $196.69 million five-day take of Iron Man 3.

Lionsgate's The Age of Adaline held steady in a distant second with $0.809 million. The romantic drama starring Blake Lively was up a very strong 53 percent over Monday and down 40 percent from last Tuesday. The Age of Adaline continues to perform on the high end of expectations with a twelve-day take of $24.72 million. That places the film just 1 percent behind the recent $24.96 million twelve-day start of The Longest Ride. The Age of Adaline will hope to hold up well this coming weekend thanks in part to the Mother's Day holiday.

Furious 7 grossed $0.610 million to remain in third place. The seventh installment of Universal's blockbuster action franchise was up 24 percent over Monday and down a sharp 57 percent from last Tuesday. Furious 7 has grossed $332.17 million in 33 days, which places the film an extremely impressive 44.5 percent ahead of the $229.85 million 33-day take of 2013's Fast & Furious 6.

Sony's Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 continued to claim fourth place with $0.438 million. The Kevin James led comedy sequel increased a healthy 45 percent over Monday and fell 46 percent from last Tuesday. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 has grossed $52.26 million in 19 days. The film continues to run in line with expectations and is running 16 percent behind the $62.02 million 19-day take of 2011's Zookeeper.
