Weekend Box Office: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Hits $65M, ‘Alice’ Bombs

Memorial Day Weekend

Director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse easily topped Memorial Day weekend, earning an estimated $65 million [$78 million across 4-days], while Johnny Depp‘s Alice Through the Looking Glass bombed over holiday weekend box office so far.

Reviews for Apocalypse said that the film was either “meh” or “not good,” but X-flick is performing extremely well overseas, with its international total standing at $115 million.

Meanwhile, the $170 million Alice in Wonderland sequel earned just $28.1 million in second place over the first three days and is expected to take in $35.6 million over the four-day holiday. Poor Johnny Depp, bad week for him.

Three-day estimates have Sony’s The Angry Birds Movie coming in at third place with $18.7 million in its second weekend. Fourth place goes to Disney and Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War. The blockbuster comic book adaptation grossed $15.1 million in its fourth weekend, surpassing Deadpool this weekend to become the No. 1 film domestically.

Universal Pictures sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising rounds out the holiday weekend, bringing in an estimated $9.1 million for the three-day portion of the holiday weekend. Here’s this weekend’s top ten estimates at the box office, via Box Office Mojo:
