– The "Age of Ultron" is not over. The Avengers sequel topped the domestic box office for the second weekend in a row with an estimated $77.2 million according to Rentrak estimates Sunday.

The film has earned a staggering $312.9 million in just 10 days in theaters, tying with "The Dark Knight" to become the second-fastest film to do so.

While a wild success by any measure, the film is still lagging behind the record-setting precedent of 2012's "The Avengers," which made $103.1 million in its second weekend in theaters and had a domestic total of $373 million at the same point in the cycle.

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" also added $68.3 million internationally, bringing its worldwide total to $875.3 million.

"Hot Pursuit," meanwhile, did not make a significant mark in its debut weekend, earning a less-than-impressive $13.3 million. The Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara buddy comedy, which cost a reported $35 million to produce, was projected to earn at least $18 million out of the gates.

Jeff Goldstein of Warner Bros. noted that the film attracted an older and primarily female audience, which is one that doesn't necessarily rush out on opening weekend to check out a film.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday:

1. "Avengers: Age of Ultron," $77.2 million

2. "Hot Pursuit," $13.3 million

3. "The Age of Adaline," $5.6 million

4. "Furious 7," $5.3 million

5. "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," $5.2 million

6. "Ex Machina," $3.5 million

7. "Home," $3 million

8. "Woman In Gold," $1.7 million

9. "Cinderella," $1.6 million

10. "Unfriended," $1.4 million
