Weekend Box Office: X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Overpowers GODZILLA

No surprise here as the audience was going nuts over Quicksilver’s scenes. X-Men: Days of Future Past pushed Godzilla to the side, heading toward being No. 1 at the box office.

Days of Future Past debuted with an estimated $90.7 million over the first three days of the Memorial Day weekend and it’s safe to project the film should reach$110 million over the long weekend.

The seventh X-Men picture has already earned a global total of $261.8 million, which is the biggest international opener of the year, and 20th Century Fox’s biggest international opening ever.

Last week’s winner, Gareth Edwards monster reboot Godzilla, dropped to second place with $31.4 million through Sunday for $148.7 million to date. Although it dropped roughly 66%, Warners isn’t worried though, the film currently has a $315.4 million worldwide after just ten days.

The Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore romantic comedy reunion Blended claimed the No. 3 spot, taking in $14.2 million and on pace for about $18 million through Monday, making it one of Sandler’s lowest openings in recent years.

The Seth Rogen and Zac Efron R-rated comedy Neighbors landed in fourth place and took in another $13.9 million for $113.6 million in just three weekends.

The Sony sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was fifth with $7.8 million with a projected $10m holiday take.

Next weekend Disney debuts Angelina Jolie as Maleficent (expected to open in first place with around $60 million), while Universal drops Seth McFarlane’s western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West (debut of $25 million seems about right).
