Bryan Singer wiped away the events of X-Men: The Last Stand with X-Men: Days of Future Past, and he has now also managed to eclipse the box office record set by the third (and worst) installment in the franchise at the box office. The 2006 movie from Brett Ratner earned $459.4 million worldwide, but this latest release has now crossed the $500 million mark this weekend with a total of $500.2 million. That includes the extra $32.6 million taken domestically and $95.6 million internationally this weekend. As a result, X-Men: Days of Future Past has so far earned $162.1 million domestically and $338.1 million internationally.

The Wolverine grossed $416.5 million globally in 2013, while X-Men: First Class, earned $353.6 million in 2011. Those two movies helped restore faith in the franchise with fans and normal moviegoers alike, and it will be very interesting to see how much this one grosses by the end of its run!

Another comic book movie still in theatres is The Amazing Spider-Man 2. That finally topped the worldwide total of the first movie today, but has yet to reach $700 million worldwide.

How many times have you seen X-Men: Days of Future Past?

Add ten to that because I'm seeing it for the 4th time next week.
ALegendaryPanda - 6/1/2014, 10:25 AM
HELL YEAH!! I hope it reaches 700 million or more by the end!
Batmaniac - 6/1/2014, 10:25 AM
Good, I'm glad. It deserves every penny it makes.
Destined - 6/1/2014, 10:25 AM
Yasss! Deserves it and more. A GREAT film to the CBM family.
Destined - 6/1/2014, 10:26 AM
@Agent I'm trying to see when I can see it a third time lol.
charlie2094 - 6/1/2014, 10:28 AM
Awesome stuff! Great film, deserves it, great that it's the biggest X:Men film too, hopefully it's only up from here for the franchise.

Spider-Man hasn't done $700 yet? Still decent numbers, but Deadline did say it needs $755 to hit profit and Sony obviously expected more (how much they put in to it)...should finish very close to $750, so should make it's money back.
MrSotoMan - 6/1/2014, 10:33 AM
SONY today when hearing this
WinterSoldier33 - 6/1/2014, 10:33 AM
i think it will hit 700 mil

i am really excited for the x men MCU. they set it up so that anything is possible. we could have a fantastic four and x men cross over.

i dont read the comics so i dont no if they are enemies or friends, but i love to see magneto and doom team up.
Gyasiman - 6/1/2014, 10:34 AM
I'm still leaning to First Class being the better movie. That film was perfect to me.

And now we know that Dmon is no fortune teller.

Avi Arad in his home (since I am sure he is off Sundays)
Batmaniac - 6/1/2014, 10:35 AM
I've seen Days of Future Past twice so far in the cinema. In comparison with other comic book movies, I saw The Dark Knight & The Dark Knight Rises three times, and Man of Steel twice. All the other comic book movies I've seen at the cinema have been single viewings.
ALegendaryPanda - 6/1/2014, 10:37 AM
Lol

DOFP was my favorite cartoon episode when I was a kid. Now it's my favorite movie. Awesome. The comic book was great too. Is there ever gonna be a movie entitled "Uncanny X-Men"? That would rule
marvel72 - 6/1/2014, 10:37 AM
definitely the best x-men movie thus far & i've seen it once.can't see the point of paying to see the same movie twice when i could watch something else i may want to see i.e edge of tomorrow.
ManofSteel23 - 6/1/2014, 10:37 AM
rubbish film, first class was 10x better
MrSotoMan - 6/1/2014, 10:37 AM
Truly have no idea what the [frick] that meant in the Avi Arad gif.
JoJo1982 - 6/1/2014, 10:39 AM
Lmao

I TOLD YALL!!!!


Like i said it will be part of the 700 million club too
SuperCat - 6/1/2014, 10:41 AM
Great news! Wish it stayed in the #1 spot :(
MercwithMouth - 6/1/2014, 10:42 AM
I need to see this movie...

Great that it's doing so well. Should pass Spiderman in 2 weeks, and Cap2 by the end of June.
Zickafoose - 6/1/2014, 10:42 AM
I'm glad this is the one to claim the top grossing spot!
DaVinci31 - 6/1/2014, 10:42 AM


(I really gave it a 9/10, but you get what I mean)
JoJo1982 - 6/1/2014, 10:43 AM
After 1 week, 500 million dollars

Where those haters at now
Shamo - 6/1/2014, 10:43 AM
500m in what, 9 days? Lmao! Where's that hater young Thanos at? the one who said "it'll be lucky to get to 600m"

Lmao! Keep the hate coming haters, I enjoy seeing y'all eat crow.

Hater #1: movies gonna be shit
--highest rated CBM of all time by the audience via RT, 2nd highest rated CBM of all time by the top critics, 4th highest rated CBM of all time by all critics, highest rated CBM of the year in all 3 categories

Hater #2: movie won't make anywhere near as much as CA:TWS or TASM 2
---makes 500 million in about a week

Sorry haters, maybe next time. In Singer We Trust!
Destined - 6/1/2014, 10:43 AM
@Jojo I sure hope so! Would love to see it up there with Cap! Two awesome CBM'S!
Batmaniac - 6/1/2014, 10:45 AM
I love the way Beast looked in this movie. He looks so much better than he did in First Class.



CaptainAmerica31 - 6/1/2014, 10:45 AM
Looks like this will be the highest grossing CBM this year
Bl00dwerK - 6/1/2014, 10:45 AM
Still haven't seen it...
Nivekian - 6/1/2014, 10:46 AM
It's because people Prefer a young Magneto and Xavier, and flashy colorful costumes. If Singer goes full color costumes in Apocolypse, it will outgross this one. Embrase the absurdity of the source material, but take it seriously Hollywood, money to be made here. I have to admit, I liked it much more than I thought I would, but I want more of the "young" cast.
JoJo1982 - 6/1/2014, 10:46 AM
ArmGunar - 6/1/2014, 10:47 AM
Well deserved !!

500M in only 10 days o_O

700M is doable !
m0th3r - 6/1/2014, 10:47 AM
Means a 750m finish or so...which is best in franchise history..Which is killer..


We do understand breaking even sucks, and turning a low percentage profit also sucks. If you invest X (anywhere from wishers at 325m and haters at 475m) and need x2 Box office...this means at lowest thats 650, so 750 means a 100m return on a 325m investment..and the high end its still a big red number. If we go average or low average to be nice and say 750 breaks them even...that means Fox invested X into something they made zero profit from.

I guess my question is...anyone here in film school?? i know what stocks, bonds, IRAs, etc...should return, but no idea what a studio is looking for. 50m bucks is always awesome...but if your 3-400m could have made you, or SHOULD HAVE MADE YOU, say 30% or something we dont know it could be very bad.

I do believe Fox is franchise building and this breaks even secures apocalypse . The franchise was damaged over time and the wolverine and this movie are good enough to re-establish it and pull lost fans back. Thats why you saw such an increase in returns on Avengers solo movies over first installments...Franchise Power! Avengers 2 wont do that for Thor and Cap again but it carries over..Marvel has their momentum...Xmen Universe has a nice start and should see those returns soon...

Remember everyone saying it was gonna flop? Hahahahahah, ahh, funny shit guys.
arsonjack - 6/1/2014, 10:47 AM
