Avengers: Age of Ultron hold strong for record sophomore weekend

Avengers: Age Of Ultron has tied with The Dark Knight to become the second fastest film to rake in more than $300 million in North America in just 10 days.

The Marvel superhero blockbuster holds strong at number one during Mother's Day weekend (08-10May15), adding another $77.2 million in its second week on release, lifting the film's domestic total to $312.9 million .


The impressive take places it level with Batman Begins follow-up The Dark Knight, which also hit the same milestone in 10 days, just behind 2012's The Avengers, which achieved the feat in nine days.


Age of Ultron added another $68 million in international markets, boosting its global total to $875.3 million .


Meanwhile, back in the box office, Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara's comedy Hot Pursuit is a new entry at two, trailing with a disappointing $13.3 million .


Blake Lively's The Age of Adaline slips to three, while Furious 7 and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 round out the new top five.
