“X-men” movie dominates box office

See also

To no one’s surprise, the latest X-men movie, Days of Future Past, takes the top spot at the box office and beating out the number one movie from last week and the other new movie to come out this week.

The new X-men movie was able to bring in an estimated $90 million which is almost half of it’s $200 million budget. The new movie is being considered one of the best superhero movies to be made and certainly one of the best X-men movies to be made. And it’s 91% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes certainly shows that.

Godzilla falls down to the number 2 spot with a still impressive $31 million. The movie has made around $148 million which is just shy of it’s $160 million budget. No doubt it should pass that by the end of next week.

The other new movie to come out this week is the latest from Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore in Blended. The movie took in an estimated $14 million which is a solid opening for this movie, even though it’s not the best opening for these two actors together in a movie.

Rounding out the top five is Neighbors which took in an estimated $13 million, pushing it over the $100 million mark at the box office; and The Amazing Spider-man 2 with an estimated $7 million. The movie is doing far lower then expectations not even crossing $200 million yet by the 4th week.

For the rest of the list, you can go here.

While there is a pretty good list of movies coming out this week, X-men should find itself at the top spot for the second straight week as it may not really get any good competition until the first week of June.
