BOX OFFICE: THE WOLVERINE Becomes The 19th Movie Of 2013 To Pass $100M Domestically
It took a little over two weeks, but James Mangold's The Wolverine has become only the 19th movie of 2013 to reach the elusive $100 million mark at the North American box office. A sequel is thankfully looking highly likely now. Hit the jump for further details!
After earning $2.84 million at the North American box office yesterday, James Mangold's The Wolverine has managed to reach the elusive $100 million. While we don't have the most up to date international numbers, it's believed that the movie has so far made upwards of $160 million. Add that to its domestic take and The Wolverine has easily made back its $120 million production budget. Is this a good enough result for a sequel? Stay tuned to CBM for future updates!
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
