BOX OFFICE: X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Exceeds Expectations With Amazing $111M Debut

The numbers are in for the four day Memorial Day weekend, and Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past has performed even better than expected at the North American box office with an incredible total of $111 million. Oh, and the "inbetweenquel" has also passed $300 million worldwide!

Box Office Mojo adds that X-Men: Days of Future Past actually took $91.4 million for the three day weekend, and with $111 million domestically and an additional $191 million from overseas, that's a whopping $302 million after less than a week of release! That $91.4 million means it didn't top Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and comes just slightly shy of The Amazing Spider-Man 2's debut, but it's interesting to wonder just how much it would have taken across Friday, Saturday and Sunday had some not decided to wait until today to check it out. We'll obviously have some slightly more specific numbers for you later today or early tomorrow, but this is a great result for a damn good movie, wouldn't you agree?

Congrats! A very well deserving movie!
charlie2094 - 5/26/2014, 9:39 AM
Great numbers! Still not quite as big as The Last Stand, but will definitely exceed it overall so no worries there...

Deserves everything it makes, great film
dinkinflicka - 5/26/2014, 9:41 AM
Awesome movie I'm more curious now to see how James Mangold handles the sequel to Wolverine.
MightOfMagneto - 5/26/2014, 9:41 AM
And lets dance to the beat of whining from the haters!

ManWithNoName - 5/26/2014, 9:42 AM
Well looks like wolverine and iron man won't be fighting anytime soon
DoubleD - 5/26/2014, 9:44 AM
Good movie but not great. What shocks me is "comes just slightly shy of The Amazing Spider-Man 2's debut"
TheBaroness89 - 5/26/2014, 9:44 AM
nice. deserves it. I like when great movies make that cash. It bugs me to all hell when bullshit like Avatar makes money. yeah sorry that movie is a visually stunning piece of Pocahontas, Dances with Wolves plot stealing story stealing hunk of doo doo.
Word of mouth will keep X-Men strong- I even have a feeling it can beat Maleficent this coming week.
CaptainAmerica31 - 5/26/2014, 9:44 AM
Best movie of the year and 2nd best CBM of all time. Story telling is just to damn good. Action was great could've been better. But you can't rank this any where below 9/10 it's just that good. I need to see this again
Karmatron - 5/26/2014, 9:45 AM

@The Baroness:

I hated with a passion Avatar ... [frick]ing pocahontas from space with green peace added to the mix
DoubleD - 5/26/2014, 9:47 AM
X-Men DoFP = 7 stars out of 10.

Just like there was NO Godzilla, There were no Sentintels.
Karmatron - 5/26/2014, 9:47 AM
Gentleman, we have witnessed the best CBM of the year so far.

A great year to be a comic book fan indeed
DoubleD - 5/26/2014, 9:48 AM
Avatar 10 out of 10 stars
Karmatron - 5/26/2014, 9:48 AM
some movies are like that, in IronMan 3 there was no Ironman in there, just lego armors and stand up comedy Tony stark
pointman - 5/26/2014, 9:49 AM
And I suppose because of the success of this film the studio lawyers will make his case disappear and everyone will just look the other way.
CaptainAmerica31 - 5/26/2014, 9:49 AM
My fav CBMs this year

DOFP-9.8/10

CAP 2- 9.5/10

TASM 2 2/5

GODZILLA 4/5


After seeing DOFP I wasn't sure which movie I liked better TWS or DOFP? But TWS always was the same to me, it was great. DOFP went from great to excellent as I thought about it. So good, words cannot describe it. Someone go with me to watch it
DoubleD - 5/26/2014, 9:50 AM
Memorial Weekend I thought it would have done a lot more. Less then TASM 2 is a shocker given it is a holiday
SuperCat - 5/26/2014, 9:50 AM
MrBlackjack - 5/26/2014, 9:50 AM
Umm, sentinels were in the film.
Primordiac - 5/26/2014, 9:52 AM
Whuhaha @ Desrow

so true !!
MightOfMagneto - 5/26/2014, 9:52 AM
@Karmatron

Yeah... it was for revitalizing to see Marvel Studios abadoning the forced humor for Cap2.

So far, its a great cbm for me!

Its like 2008 (TDK, TIH and Ironman)
SageMode - 5/26/2014, 9:52 AM
Wolverine/Prof. X/Mags part 7 was an overrated movie.
Karmatron - 5/26/2014, 9:53 AM
@CapAmerica

Your just really hated TASM2! LOL

Some friends of me hated it just like you, I thought It was great.

Godzilla was great but I wanted more Godzilla hahaha and after MrBreakingBad dissapeared the other guy was just boring
CaptainAmerica31 - 5/26/2014, 9:53 AM
@doubleD the sentinels were not suppose to be in the movie a lot. They were there for the perfect amount of time because they were suppose to represent how scary the future is. And they did just that, by killing all the Xmen in the future every time they encountered reinforced the gravity of the situation. Making the stakes high for Xavier in past to change it all so the mutants won't die. Besides how can you not complain about winter soldier who was merely a plot device in TWS? The sentinels aren't in the name of the movie unlike the winter soldier. So all in all the sentinels didn't need to be in the movie because the primary task at hand is to stop mystique from causing the rise of the sentinels.
DoubleD - 5/26/2014, 9:55 AM
X-Men DoFP 2 hours and 11 minute movie. AND maybe 10 minutes of Sentinal time. More like 5 minutes at the beginning for the Future Sentinels and the 1973 Sentinels were never even turned on. All 8 or 10 of them were just for show. NO ACTION
ComicFan523 - 5/26/2014, 9:55 AM
Great movie, glad its doing well. The theater that I went to was packed to the rafters yesterday, I've never seen so many people there, so I'm not surprised that it made more than expected.
CaptainAmerica31 - 5/26/2014, 9:56 AM
@karmatron yea I was severely disappointed. Ending was good though
