BOX OFFICE: Tracking Indicates Huge $125M Opening For X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

The controversy surrounding Bryan Singer doesn't look set to have too huge of an impact on X-Men: Days of Future Past's North American opening, as tracking indicates a debut of $125 million during the Memorial Day weekend, making the most successful instalment in the franchise yet!

Variety reports that X-Men: Days of Future Past is on track to debut at the North American box office with $125 million when it opens in time for the memorial day weekend come May 23rd. With a lay and date worldwide release (including the increasingly profitable China), the "inbetweenquel" looks set to be the biggest X-Men movie yet for Twentieth Century Fox. X-Men: The Last Stand earned $123 million when it opened during the same weekend back in 2006, but it's likely that this one will be even bigger. With analysts predicting a domestic total haul of $250 million, X-Men: Days of Future Past would become the franchise's highest grossing instalment. X-Men: First Class made only $146 million, but that was after a couple of not so great movies like X-Men Origins: Wolverine. With the Matthew Vaughn helmed prequel proving to be a success with fans and critics alike, not to mention The Wolverine, it's no wonder that this one looks set to be so popular (especially with the extremely appealing cast). Could the allegations against Bryan Singer impact this?

I need to stop commenting so early and stop being first; I feel like Pasto for [frick]s sake.

As much as I'm looking forward to both films, it would be extremely satisfying to me if Godzilla beat DOFP.

Well holy shit!

I doubt this movie will do better than ASM2, With Cap having come out not too long ago and Spidey this past weekend the GA will have had enough of heroes for now. Plus throw in Godzilla and the audience is shrinking and shrinking.

Surely won't be getting my money. Lol.

Nice!!! Bob is right though. The audience is fatigued from action movies. Regardless, im dragging my friends along as usual

The audience isn't getting fatigued from anything, if the movie is great it'll make shitloads of money I can guarantee that.
blackandyellow - 5/5/2014, 6:09 PM
Holy shit. I wasn't expecting that.
Bekss - 5/5/2014, 6:10 PM
bobo
They take all that into consideration to this predictions, so it seems it's going to do better than ASM2 but maybe overseas will be completely different

Whoa!
Doopie - 5/5/2014, 6:12 PM

Omarvls - 5/5/2014, 6:12 PM
Cool
I will give them my money
blackandyellow - 5/5/2014, 6:12 PM
Pens are looking good. Buccos are looking good. It's shaping up to be a great night for the City of Champions.
Bekss - 5/5/2014, 6:13 PM
ASM2 had a bad reception and bad reviews. it's not like the people don't want to see CBMs anymore
TheAbaryMan369 - 5/5/2014, 6:13 PM
HOLY [frick]. That's MASSIVE for an X-Men movie! Bigger than TASM 2's US debut.
MercwithMouth - 5/5/2014, 6:13 PM
Damn good news. @dellamorte is gonna be pissed!
TheRationalNerd - 5/5/2014, 6:13 PM
Gotta buy me and my pops a ticket before they sell out!
MercwithMouth - 5/5/2014, 6:14 PM
@b&y

So Crosbitch finally got a goal eh?
BlkThunderGod - 5/5/2014, 6:14 PM
125 mill is sick. I'm thinking that should easily put them I'm the 700-800 million range. Marvel should have snatched up Memorial Day weekend.
ThrotTheUnclean - 5/5/2014, 6:14 PM
[frick] tracking.
MrCBM56 - 5/5/2014, 6:14 PM
Holy shit.
Pending - 5/5/2014, 6:14 PM
Woah, I wanna believe it but I can't.
jTiso - 5/5/2014, 6:15 PM
I don't think the audience is fatigued, but I don't see how it will make that much opening weekend. There will be way too much competition: Neighbors (Every one is saying how awesome it is) ASM2, Godzilla (Something Different And something New-ish in this decade), and Cap 2 will still be in theaters. X-Men DOFP will definitely take the #1 spot while making a crap-ton of loot, but $125 Mill...? Please.
Holmes - 5/5/2014, 6:15 PM
yaaaaaaa buddy, might b tough with Godzilla openig a week before that though, ill be seeing both so idc. ALL HAIL GODZILLA!
yonny616 - 5/5/2014, 6:16 PM
Wooo! Will be there! Day one or day two, but i will be there. So hyped!
Holmes - 5/5/2014, 6:16 PM
@BlackandYellow
Yes, yes it is
MrBlackjack - 5/5/2014, 6:16 PM
I sense something in the force... I sense ProfX crying behind his keyboard...I sense, butthurt from him ;)
JoJo1982 - 5/5/2014, 6:17 PM
I will be there with my friends midnight screening!!!
MrCBM56 - 5/5/2014, 6:17 PM
They've been marketing this movie EVERY WHERE. & I mean EVERY WHERE. There's no place or TV channel you go to where you don't see an ad for this movie.
0megaDaGod - 5/5/2014, 6:17 PM
"Damn good news. @dellamorte is gonna be pissed!"

LMAO

You eviscerated that dude eariler
Omarvls - 5/5/2014, 6:17 PM
If BvS is released on Labor Day 2016
250 million opening weekend if Cap 3 is releases Labor Day 2016 175 million
blackandyellow - 5/5/2014, 6:18 PM
Merc

LMAO yep. Malkin found his game in the last week. If Crosby catches fire then the Pens got this shit in the bag.
