BOX OFFICE: X-MEN: DOFP Off To A Great Start From Thursday Night Takings

Bryan Singer's excellent X-Men: Days Of Future Past is expected to earn upwards of $100M over the four-day weekend, and has set the ball rolling with a very impressive $8M from Thursday night showings alone. More past the jump.

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in North America today, and analysts are now predicting a $100 million haul for Bryan Singer's movie over the four day Memorial Day weekend -- meaning that it could well wind up the most financially (and critically as it currently sits at 94% on RT) successful X-Men film yet. Whether that happens or not, there's no doubt that it's off to a great start as it took in $8.1M in 2,900 theaters last night. Days Of Future Past also opens in 100 countries today, including China and the UK/Ireland. Are you planning on checking it out in theaters this weekend? If you're still on the fence you can read my review HERE.

Awesome stuff! Didn't last stand make like $120 in it's first weekend?

Deserves everything it makes, really pulled it out with this! Just as good as, if not better, than Cap 2. Unless Guardians disappoints, this year will be much better than 2013
ezio619 - 5/23/2014, 8:34 AM
i cant wait to see, gonna try to go today but will see it tomorrow!!

charlie-i sincerely hope guardians does not dissapoint..multiple sources from pretty reliable sites have said that guardians may be marvel studios best script yet and these are the people that said Cap 2 is marvels best script yet before gunn rewrote the script for guardians and then they said nooooooo.guardians is marvels best script yet..anyway i have never been as excited for a movie then i am for this...i hope its good and successful
SuperCat - 5/23/2014, 8:36 AM

@ezio

Same here! Guardians is shaping up to be brilliant, just trying not to get too excited. Went into DOFP with no expectations and absolutely loved it. Will definitely be successful, Marvel's too big a brand to not be at the moment. Reckon it'll fall pretty much inline with the first Thor, critically and b.o wise
TheWolverine08 - 5/23/2014, 8:39 AM
Looks like another successful CBM we can add to our list!

charlie-i have been going into movies with no expectations at all and maybe thats the reason i enjoy them more then other people
FantasticSpidey - 5/23/2014, 8:42 AM
Aw shame. TASM2 made 8.7 million.

GUESS XMEN:DOFP MUST BE HORRIBLE

Superotherside..thanks! Wouldn't have copped that:)

That last one finished me XD
charlie2094 - 5/23/2014, 8:43 AM
@ezio

Probably the best way, usually how you get disappointed by expecting too much...hard to do for some films though :P

These are great numbers, shaping up to maybe be the biggest X-film yet, where Spidey was the lowest yet
