The seventh movie in the Star Wars series is 1/4 to gross the highest amount while Jurassic World and Spectre are 8/1. Age of Ultron’s odds have been slashed from an original 5/1 and has been the biggest mover in the market. 

“The second trailer for Age of Ultron has landed and makes the movie look even more exciting than the first one did,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “The first Avengers movie was one of the highest grossing movies of all time and the second one could well be up there as well.”
