Despite an incredible opening last week, X-Men: Days of Future Past will fall to second place this weekend in North America with an estimated $32 million three day total after taking $9.6 million on Friday. It's been beaten by Disney's Maleficent, the live-action Sleeping Beauty prequel which stars Angelina Jolie. That earned $24.2 million when it opened yesterday, and now looks set for a $70+ million by the end of tomorrow. $65 million is a more conservative estimate, but that's still a great debut, especially as it has already taken over $20 million overseas. Another notable new arrival this week is Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West, the R-Rated comedy set in the old West. That looks set to open in third, and with a projected $16 million, that's a pretty massive drop when compared to Ted's debut. What are you guys watching this weekend?

Maleficent looks BAD which doesn't surprise me because it's based from Sleeping Beauty
