Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is off to a scorching start at the North American box office and living up to the hype bestowed upon it after the original’s huge opening weekend back in the summer of 2012.

Building upon an over $250 million box office bow overseas, Age of Ultron opened late Thursday in North America and quickly banned $27.6 million from those late night showings. Fans lined up in droves to see Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo square off against the sinister robotic Ultron, voiced by James Spader.

Disney reported late Friday evening that early reports on Friday ticket sales, pre-sales and forward projections were estimated the Avengers: Age of Ultron box office tracking for the weekend to land somewhere between $200 and $210 million.

For reference, 2012’s Marvel’s The Avengers opened to $18.7 at midnight showings, a record at the time, and barely cleared $80 million on Friday. Through Sunday the superhero blockbuster had earned a whopping $207.4 million and currently holds the record for the top opening weekend in North America of all-time.

We should gain a little more clarity around midday on Saturday when Friday’s final numbers are tallied and Disney can better project the Avengers: Age of Ultron box office through Sunday.
