'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Surpasses the $200M Milestone After $13.2M Monday TakeMay 05, 2015 12:18 PM

by Daniel Garris

Avengers: Age of Ultron continued to dominate the daily box office on Monday with a daily take of $13.23 million. In the process, the blockbuster superhero sequel from Disney and Marvel surpassed the $200 million mark on Monday. The film reached the milestone in four days; making it the second fastest film ever to reach the milestone (behind only 2012's Marvel's The Avengers). However, Avengers: Age of Ultron was down a sizable 74 percent from Sunday's performance. That is a concerning early sign given that The Avengers declined 67 percent to gross $18.89 million on its first Monday. The first Monday performance of Avengers: Age of Ultron was much closer to that of 2013's Iron Man 3, which fell 74 percent on its first Monday to gross $11.27 million. With a massive four-day start of $204.499 million, Avengers: Age of Ultron is running 10 percent behind the $226.34 million four-day take of The Avengers and 10 percent ahead of the $185.41 million four-day gross of Iron Man 3.

Lionsgate's The Age of Adaline placed in a distant second with $0.529 million. The romantic drama starring Blake Lively was down 65 percent from Sunday and down a solid 42 percent from last Monday. The Age of Adaline continues to perform on the high end of expectations with an eleven-day take of $23.91 million. That places the film a slim 1 percent behind the recent $24.21 million eleven-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 followed closely behind in third place with $0.494 million. The seventh installment of Universal's blockbuster action franchise fell 74 percent from Sunday and a sharp 57 percent from last Monday. Furious 7 has grossed $331.56 million in 32 days, which places the film an extremely impressive 45 percent ahead of the $229.19 million 32-day take of 2013's Fast & Furious 6.

Sony's Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 claimed fourth place with $0.301 million. The modestly budgeted Kevin James led comedy sequel declined 82 percent from Sunday and 51 percent from last Monday. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 has grossed $51.82 million in 18 days. The film continues to run in line with expectations and is running 14 percent behind the $60.48 million 18-day take of 2011's Zookeeper.
