"Avengers: Age of Ultron" is off to a powerful start at the domestic box office with $27.6 million from Thursday night showings, as it aims to possibly break the record for the biggest U.S. opening weekend.
The sequel to 2012's "The Avengers" is expected to gross $200 million or more, according to analysts. To break the all-time U.S. Canada record, "Age of Ultron" will have to top the $207 million its predecessor generated with its opening.
