BOX OFFICE: Bryan Singer's X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Passes $600 Million Worldwide

Brett Ratner's critically panned X-Men: The Last Stand previously held the honour of being the highest grossing instalment in the Twentieth Century Fox franchise with $459 million, but X-Men: Days of Future Past has now surpassed that with over $600 million worldwide!

By Josh Wilding - 6/8/2014

Despite the controversy surrounding director Bryan Singer ahead of its release, X-Men: Days of Future Past has still managed to become not only one of the best reviewed films of the summer, but also one of the most commercially successful. It's fair to say that the movie which united two different ensemble casts on the big screen deserves the type of success detailed below, and it will be interesting to see which milestone it hits next. $700 million still seems possible, and there's every chance that the goodwill surrounding the Fox owned Marvel franchise after three great movies will result in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse hitting $1 billion! What do you guys think?

Good. This deserves to be the highest grossing X-Flick.
JordanKing - 6/8/2014, 10:40 AM
Well done to the 2nd best CBM of the year :)
McNyagano - 6/8/2014, 10:41 AM
Great news. Totally deserves it:)
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 6/8/2014, 10:42 AM
Great film. Really hard to pick which one I liked better, Cap 2 or this.
DrDoom - 6/8/2014, 10:42 AM
Good, if overrated movie.

It's still the fake X-Men.
MightOfMagneto - 6/8/2014, 10:44 AM
Good job! Mr. Singer.
Nick56 - 6/8/2014, 10:44 AM
Excellent movie. Easily the best CBM of the year so far imo.
KallarkKent - 6/8/2014, 10:47 AM
Looks like Marvel characters rule the world. The top grossing movies around the world this year are Cap, Spider-Man and X-Men :)
0megaDaGod - 6/8/2014, 10:48 AM
Glad the franchise is finally back on track

If this is the version of the X Men we're gonna get I'm glad we're at least getting respectable movies out them

Now bring on Apocalypse give me those DAMN COSTUMES
TheMexicanSuperman - 6/8/2014, 10:48 AM
Nomis, dellamorte, and Young Thanos are on suicide watch at the moment.
ALegendaryPanda - 6/8/2014, 10:48 AM
[frick]ing awesome! I hope it reaches 700 million!
0megaDaGod - 6/8/2014, 10:48 AM
@KallarkKent

Damn, didn't even realize that. LOL

Next year it'll be even more Marvel-ous
sKeemAn - 6/8/2014, 10:49 AM
Great film deserves every penny. This and Cap 2 best are neck and neck for me.
Phronesis - 6/8/2014, 10:49 AM
Overrated is such a dumb term. There's no definite reasoning as to which makes something overrated. It's more opinion based than anything and even then I feel it shouldn't be used.
codydriscollsrightarm - 6/8/2014, 10:49 AM
Best CBM of the year.
0megaDaGod - 6/8/2014, 10:49 AM
I'd say if international numbers hold up it can definitely reach 700M. It's been holding decently domestically and internationally, so it has a chance to get there
TheMexicanSuperman - 6/8/2014, 10:49 AM
@0megaDaGod, I think we are getting the "classic" suits in Apocalypse.
BatManHeisenberg - 6/8/2014, 10:50 AM
Worth every penny.
DoubleDion - 6/8/2014, 10:50 AM
MARVEL... YOUR MOVE
DudeGuyMan - 6/8/2014, 10:51 AM
Lol panned.
dickmastaflex - 6/8/2014, 10:52 AM
hated it
MrNiklander - 6/8/2014, 10:52 AM
I liked the film. The X-Men we need but not the one we deserve
Ryguy88 - 6/8/2014, 10:53 AM
Lol @ DoubleD
AsgardianHobo - 6/8/2014, 10:53 AM
I had my doubts before it came out because of the previous movies, but this movie was amazing! Pleasantly surprised, deserves every cent
charlie2094 - 6/8/2014, 10:53 AM
Awesome stuff, deserves everything it makes, fantastic film. Redeemed the franchise for me...could maybe hit $700 by the time it finishes! Think TASM2/Cap2/DOFP will all be pretty close B.O wise, great going.
Destined - 6/8/2014, 10:54 AM
Well deserved! Love this movie, went seen for the third time yesterday and it was full for a 5 feature. Glad it's still moving!
TheRationalNerd - 6/8/2014, 10:55 AM
Keep it coming fellow mutants! :D
Jollem - 6/8/2014, 10:55 AM
well deserved. long live the "Fox-Men" ;)
TheAmazingAvenger - 6/8/2014, 10:56 AM
But... But... X-Men: The Last Stand wasn't really as panned as a lot say it is.
StarYeezus - 6/8/2014, 10:56 AM

QFFT! It's subjectivity disguised as a fact.
TheRationalNerd - 6/8/2014, 10:57 AM
Apocalypse is going to be even bigger!

-Younger (new) cast
-Memorable X-Men finally being introduced/reintroduced
-Apocalypse
-Disaster Film (no pun intended) lol
-Costumes *fingers crossed*
McNyagano - 6/8/2014, 10:58 AM
"X-Men: Apocalypse hitting $1 billion!"

Won't happen. The film is opening head to head with Alice in Wonderland 2 whilst BvS and Cap 3 are still in theatres. Unless Fox moves it, it'll be unlikely imo.
AsgardianHobo - 6/8/2014, 10:58 AM
Did they announce what decade Apocalypse will take place in?
Destined - 6/8/2014, 10:58 AM
@Blacknerd here's hoping! Can't wait!
WinterSoldier33 - 6/8/2014, 10:59 AM
i think it will atleast hit 800 mil, bring on F4
Jollem - 6/8/2014, 10:59 AM
0megaDaGod - 6/8/2014, 10:59 AM
@Asgardianhobo

1980s
TheRationalNerd - 6/8/2014, 11:00 AM
I think Apocalypse might end up around 700-800 million but seeing that it's going to be released around the same time Batman vs. Superman, Cap 3 and Alice in Wonderland 2 we might be looking at a squeezing success. It's just too much power in the month of May 2016! *pats forehead*
WinterSoldier33 - 6/8/2014, 11:00 AM
@Asgardian

it will be in the 80s
Arrowhead77 - 6/8/2014, 11:00 AM
I liked it better than Cap:TWS....
