Avengers: Age of Ultron fans keep assembling. 

Disney's superhero blockbuster added $185 million from 91 territories at the international box office over the weekend, propelling its foreign total to $770.5 million and global cume to $1.142 billion. It currently sits as the eighth-highest grossing film of all time.
