'Age of Ultron' Still No. 1 Smoking Hot Pursuit

Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron, easily crushed the competition for the second weekend in a row, while Hot Pursuit, the Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara comedy, checked in in a distant second place as it hit theaters. Age of Ultron, from Disney and Marvel, collected an estimated $21.3 million in North America on Friday, bringing its eight-day domestic total to close to $257 million. Through Thursday, the tentpole had earned a staggering $753.3 million worldwide, already putting it ahead of every Marvel Cinematic Universe film save for The Avengers ($1.52 billion), Iron Man 3 ($1.21 billion) and Guardians of the Galaxy ($774.2 million).
