BOX OFFICE: The X-MEN Franchise Hits $3 Billion Globally

Bryan Singer's latest X-flick is poised to become the top grossing film of the year so far, and its excellent box office performance has helped Fox's X-Men franchise, as a whole, hit the whopping 3 billion mark. More past the jump..

X-Men: Days of Future Past has reached $702.2 million in global ticket sales, pushing the combined total gross of the seven films in the series to $3.003 billion ($1.7 billion internationally, $1.3 billion domestically). Bryan Singer's latest installment is now the highest grossing film in the franchise so far, and if it continues to have legs it could well surpass the $703.2 million earned by The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and the $710.7 Captain America: The Winter Soldier amassed. Fox have had a couple of...missteps along the way, but overall the X-movies have been of a pretty high quality, with Days Of Future Past arguably the strongest entry yet. Let's hope that continues with X-Men: Apocalypse and beyond.

Overall a great franchise apart from two huge mistakes.
DeusExSponge - 6/26/2014, 11:17 AM
Abary - Agreed!
Pasto - 6/26/2014, 11:21 AM
Pfft, franchise still blows ass.
DanteSparda - 6/26/2014, 11:22 AM
Very much what Abary said.

3 big B really well deserved! Also I think this article needs an epic X-Men pic to celebrate the occasion.

DOFP was a really good film but TWS was better IMO, but this film was still great my only problem with it was magneto once again being the villian not that he wasent awesome because he was. Fassbender is brilliant in the role.
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 6/26/2014, 11:25 AM
I finally saw DOFP last Sunday.The movie was okay,that's it.
Pasto - 6/26/2014, 11:25 AM
Yoss
No, don't see it. It sucks, plain and simple. Go see 'Think Like a Man Too' instead.

Where is TheBlackNerd to tell the haters..... :)
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 6/26/2014, 11:28 AM
@kinghulk Yes,TWS was better than this movie.And I'm tired of Magneto pulling the villain switcheroo in the end.The same old shtick with Magneto over and over again.
ALegendaryPanda - 6/26/2014, 11:30 AM
Haters are on suicide watch.
MrMartinMarvel - 6/26/2014, 11:30 AM
Well, that's good I guess, but to be honest...


JayTopStix - 6/26/2014, 11:30 AM
Amazing flick
0megaDaGod - 6/26/2014, 11:31 AM

@Yoss

Watch it now. Even if you aren't a huge fan of the franchise this is easily one of the best of all time
Pasto - 6/26/2014, 11:31 AM
Lol, didn't the Avengers and Iron Man 3 make 1 billion each?
MrBlackjack - 6/26/2014, 11:31 AM

The greatest testimonials for X-men DOFP

BatManiac - 6/26/2014, 11:32 AM
LMAO! "X-Men: DOFP won't gross 700 million" they said...

SuperCat - 6/26/2014, 11:33 AM
Loved the film. Didn't think it would make that much. Well deserved.
cipher - 6/26/2014, 11:33 AM
Heh, you just couldn't resist slipping Gal in there somewhere, huh, BJ? Nice.
HeadPool420 - 6/26/2014, 11:33 AM
@MARVELPSYCHO79 Youre right. It seems ever since X3 Magneto has been lifting huge things and dropping them. Cant he do something else for the climax?
kinghulk - 6/26/2014, 11:34 AM
marvelpsycho- exactly every time it seems magneto is on the good side (X2, first class,DOFP) at the very end of the film he goes all mutant extremist and turns into a villian. what i didnt like about it in DOFP is he made everything worse, i just wish he would have worked with prof x and the others for once. i hope they dont have him be the badguy at the end of the next film and overshadow apocolypse.
Doopie - 6/26/2014, 11:34 AM
Some of that is mine
Doopie - 6/26/2014, 11:34 AM
But they can keep it
JoJo1982 - 6/26/2014, 11:35 AM

DeusExSponge - 6/26/2014, 11:40 AM
