According to The Wrap, X-Men: Days of Future Past will likely hit the $100 million mark this Memorial Day weekend in North America. Either way, the debut of the "inbetweenquel" will mark the fifth time in the past eight weeks that a movie based on a Marvel comic book has been #1 at the box office. While it won't be taking up any IMAX screens, the follow-up to X-Men: First Class is going to be released in 3D. A 93% score on Rotten Tomatoes indicates that the response to X-Men: Days of Future Past has so far been very positive, and there's every chance it could exceed expectations. There was some concern that the legal issues surrounding Bryan Singer would have an impact on the movie's performance financially, but that clearly isn't the case. Are you looking forward to seeing it? X-Men: Days of Future Past's huge all-star cast includes Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Daniel Cudmore, Nicholas Hoult, Peter Dinklage, Halle Berry, Adan Canto, Anna Paquin, Evan Peters and Ellen Page.

wow that is a lot! Damn!

That's actually pretty good. I suppose the Singer controversy had some impact, but I don't think it really affected anything here. Good for them.

Down a bit from the tracking numbers but Godzilla already proved that you don't count the tally till the final day is done. Could do more

That RT score tho.....

CBM OF THE YEAR!!

IDK why would anyone be surprised. Plus its going to debut Memorial Day weekend, come one now.
ekrolo2 - 5/21/2014, 4:24 PM
Just saw the film, it was REALLY goddamn awesome and surprisingly character focused, especially on Charles, Erik and Raven as their actions pretty much effect all of mutant kind. Besides not enough of the fan[frick]ing tastic future segments, I really loved it all the way through.
ALegendaryPanda - 5/21/2014, 4:24 PM
I can't wait to see this tomorrow!! Ridiculously excited for this!
rockerdude22 - 5/21/2014, 4:25 PM
Wouldn't be surprised if this becomes the highest grossing entry in the franchise
MrBlackjack - 5/21/2014, 4:26 PM
Let time I checked it was suppose to hit $125 million.
AlexanderLykins - 5/21/2014, 4:27 PM
Going to be an interesting weekend.
CherryBomb - 5/21/2014, 4:29 PM
Well deserved! I haven't seen the movie but I've head nothing but praise
And the spoilers I've read sound AMAZING.

BatManiac - 5/21/2014, 4:30 PM
I'm seeing this in 10 hours. I can't [frick]ing wait!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Bu bu bu bu but

But this is not a Marvel studios movie so by default People should be hating it right?

Right?

This most be a mistake... this is a conspirancy by DC fanboys

How can a x-men movie have such a great success if it is not made by MS

I call bollocks!!!
FilmsFan - 5/21/2014, 4:32 PM
I'm shocked it's not in IMAX!
It's gona be amazing in IMAX but no!


WHY is my question!
So damn excited for this.
0megaDaGod - 5/21/2014, 4:32 PM
Just like with Thor TDW, I may not get to see this for at least a week

The undercarrage on my far broke and it's in the shop. I was supposed to see this on Friday and then go to LA to see my cousin. Now on top of having to pay the deductible for repairs, I have to get a rental car in order to go to work. The deductible on the rental car is over 100$. On top of that, the only rental that my insurance could get was a hot rod red mustang, so there's a very good chance I'll get shot if I end up going to LA.

I know a lot of you have your doubts about it and believe me, I was pretty skeptical they could pull it off. But its really just a well acted movie with a lot of heart, great action and some hilarious situations & jokes. Its not a classic standard run of the mill CBM block buster where half the planet is in ruins by the end of the final act, the fights are a lot more restrained but personnel and brutal, especially the future segments.
SugarYumYum - 5/21/2014, 4:35 PM
Yeah, that's quite a bit down from the initial tracking. Guess we won't know until we get that Friday total.

The comments sections are going to be fun this weekend, sad I'm gonna miss it.
Dandy - 5/21/2014, 4:35 PM
I predict this movie will make----

SuperCat - 5/21/2014, 4:36 PM
I believe it. I'll be seeing it on Sarurday.
DanteSparda - 5/21/2014, 4:37 PM
Now 94% on RT, fresh CBMs are cool!
KallarkKent - 5/21/2014, 4:37 PM
Tracking says about $120+ million, but after seeing Godzilla over performed I am really curious how much money it will actually earn.
Ranger14 - 5/21/2014, 4:38 PM
Which means on a regular three day weekend it would bring in $80 millionish? That's solid, but nothing earth shattering.
0megaDaGod - 5/21/2014, 4:38 PM
@Ekrolo

How would you rate in comparison to X2 and First Class?
Alfredo27 - 5/21/2014, 4:39 PM
This will blow everything else away, most of this site is under 24 and dont realize how populare Xmen is between people 28-38, Id say its about 30-40x more popular than any avenger or avengers put together. The Xmen are just a more likeable and enjoyable product.
janitra - 5/21/2014, 4:39 PM
Movie was great, really great actually
Omarvls - 5/21/2014, 4:40 PM
Wait wasn't it 135 Million for Memorial weekend
now it's 100 million
ScabbyJ - 5/21/2014, 4:41 PM
Why do people on this site keep calling it an "inbetweenquel"? It's a sequel through and through. It's a sequel to the original 2/3, The Wolverine, and First Class all at the same time. "Sequel".
BatManiac - 5/21/2014, 4:41 PM
I've been sleeping on this movie for a hot minute with all the Dawn of Justice and GOTG news, but...

ekrolo2 - 5/21/2014, 4:41 PM
@0megaDaGod

X2 is my favorite and while I still like that one more (nostalgia glasses and all that lol) I think this one combines the best of those two, its got the colorful and over the top superhero action you would find in an MCU film or in this case First Class with the gravitas and focus on the relationship between Eric & Charles along with the public perception of mutants in the original Singer movies.

Its kind of a best of both worlds all in one type of movie.
soforizo - 5/21/2014, 4:42 PM
I don't know if this can overperform like Godzilla. Godzilla has a cult-like following as its base, but we'll see.
BANE5000 - 5/21/2014, 4:43 PM
Yeah FOX would cheat by having a 4 day week end , wouldnt they? lol
ezio619 - 5/21/2014, 4:43 PM
EN SABAH NUR!!, EN SABAH NUR!!, EN SABAH NUR!!
KidGoku - 5/21/2014, 4:43 PM
The movie was damn near perfect. Not only the best CBM of the year (i really don't think Guardians can top this) and not only the best X-Men movie but dammit it's one of the best CBMs ever! Cap & X-Men really stole and killed it this year.
Bekss - 5/21/2014, 4:44 PM
Well, every big movie has been doing more than predictions lately, Thor, Lego, Cap, Neighbors, Godzilla, not Spiderman ;).
This could make a lot of money and tonight I'm gonna see if it is really that awesome
KidGoku - 5/21/2014, 4:44 PM
i tip my hat to Jackman, Fassbender and McAvoy yet again.
ezio619 - 5/21/2014, 4:44 PM
ekrolo-thats cool to hear!!, man,cant wait!!
0megaDaGod - 5/21/2014, 4:45 PM
@Ekrolo

OK cool. Always good to hear that endorsement from someone who loves X2. Watched it again over the weekend and can't believe how well it withstands the test of time.

I always pictured that if this movie reached it's full potential, it could cherry pick the best elements of X2, First Class and Avengers

Glad to hear from so many people that it managed to do that, cause I was legit worried it was gonna fail to blend all those things together
