Avengers: Age Of Ultron

As expected, Avengers: Age of Ultron had a massive debut this weekend, topping on all movies and raking in a staggering $187.7 million.

It was the second biggest U.S. opening of all-time, according to Rentrak, but it failed to top the all-time record of the first film's $207.4 million debut in 2012.

Ultron could've done more, but had some significant weekend competition: The Kentucky Derby, the NBA playoffs, and the Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao fight.

Marvel and Disney now hold the top three opening weekends of all time with Avengers and its sequel two slots, along with Iron Man 3 in third place.

The rest of the top five was: The Age of Adaline, Furious 7, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, and the animated Home.

That's a wrap for this weekend. This upcoming week, look out for the release of the Sofia Vergara/Reese Witherspoon comedy Hot Pursuit and Jack Black's The D Train.

This weekend's top 10 is as follows:

1. "Avengers: Age of Ultron," $187.7 million ($168 million international).
2. "The Age of Adaline," $6.3 million.
3. "Furious 7," $6.1 million ($52.8 million international).
4. "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," $5.6 million ($4.3 million international).
5. "Home," $3.3 million ($17 million international).
6. "Cinderella," $2.4 million ($7 million international).
