BOX OFFICE: X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Now Expected To Reach Upwards Of $120M

Analysts initially predicted that Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past MIGHT reach $100 million over the four day Memorial Day weekend, but great word of mouth and almost unanimously positive reviews have resulted in the "inbetweenquel" possibly earning as much as $120 million!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, X-Men: Days of Future Past could reach as much as $120 million over the Memorial Day weekend, with its only real competition the Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore led Blended which will earn less than $20 million. Though it cost only $45 million to produce, that still makes the comedy something of a flop for the studio who were expecting an awful lot more! There's curently no word on how well Godzilla will do during its second weekend at the North American box office, but the news that director Gareth Edwards will be helming a Star Wars spin-off will surely increase interest in the monster movie. We'll have updated numbers for you tomorrow, but if you haven't checked out either X-Men: Days of Future Past or Godzilla yet, be sure to do so over the next couple of days! What are you planning on seeing?

Just an awesome movie!! Singer became the creator and the savior of the franchise!! Incredible!! Well done!
Visualiza - 5/23/2014, 5:33 PM
Well deserved. Up there with the best in the genre, unquestionably.
Humperdink - 5/23/2014, 5:33 PM
Yeah this was obviously going to make a ton of money this memorial day weekend. I haven't seen it yet but I hope it's going to be a good one.
KarolosPrime - 5/23/2014, 5:34 PM
Good Movie!!!!
AlexanderLykins - 5/23/2014, 5:36 PM
Great movie.
shamo - 5/23/2014, 5:36 PM
Deserves every penny and then some. It was a masterpiece.
soberchimera - 5/23/2014, 5:37 PM
Did anyone catch the Len Wein and Chris Claremont cameos?
McGee - 5/23/2014, 5:38 PM
I saw Len Wein in the movie. But sadly they didn't allow Grant Morrison to come back. Jerks!

Humperdink - 5/23/2014, 5:38 PM

He probably should have just stuck with the franchise the whole time.

I mean leaving it to make duds/bombs like Valkyrie, Superman Returns and Jack The Giant Slayer?

Not the best move.
As a director he really needed a hit at this point.
batz11 - 5/23/2014, 5:38 PM
Excellent movie, loved it, will see again this weekend...
soberchimera - 5/23/2014, 5:39 PM
@McGee Are you making fun of X-Men's continuity issues? Do you make fun of kids at the special olympics too?
Humperdink - 5/23/2014, 5:39 PM

LOL dude you're on a role!
Bekss - 5/23/2014, 5:40 PM
Second best of the year but equally awesome.
Omarvls - 5/23/2014, 5:40 PM

Going again tomorrow
Karmatron - 5/23/2014, 5:41 PM
Marvel Studios Supremacists be like:

"bu bu bu but no other movie that is non-marvel studios can be so great"

"bu bu bu bu, u know what, [frick] singer and his movie"

Karmatron - 5/23/2014, 5:42 PM
the butt hurt of the supremacists is reaching unmensurable heights!!!


Negaduck - 5/23/2014, 5:42 PM
Good. I'm hoping to see it soon. I've been pretty hard on the X franchise over the years but I loved First Class and all of the good word of mouth has me excited.
MarvelMainEvent - 5/23/2014, 5:43 PM
Saw my early viewing Wednesday night & was beyond pleased. Easily in the conversation for best comic book of all time!

I'm not too worried if this movie doesn't meet what analysts are projecting because after seeing it I know this movie is going to keep raking in week after week. $120 over four days ($100 over 3) would be great but this movie is going to keep strong for weeks to come.

They really nailed this movie! As I said, possibly the best CBM ever and easily the top CBM with multiple heroes.
SuperCat - 5/23/2014, 5:43 PM
Seeing it tomorrow :)
Vegeta - 5/23/2014, 5:44 PM
Good! It deserves every penny!
Omarvls - 5/23/2014, 5:44 PM
DC Only Fanatics really Marvelites for Fox now?


batz11 - 5/23/2014, 5:44 PM
I argue if GotG delivers, that and CapTWS would give Marvel Studio the "win" for 2014, either way, both studios have done great!
Karmatron - 5/23/2014, 5:45 PM

Marvel Studios Supremacists are slowly crawling back to the hole in the jungle they came from

LMAO!!!! : D
soberchimera - 5/23/2014, 5:46 PM
I think Marvelites are coming to the sad realization that DOFP was better than Winter Soldier.
Karmatron - 5/23/2014, 5:47 PM
X-Men Days of future past is the best movie of this year hands down

Only interstellar will be able to top it
NeoBaggins - 5/23/2014, 5:47 PM
Awesome film. Epic X-MEN and best CBM of the year so far.
Reasonnnn - 5/23/2014, 5:47 PM
Seeing the first teaser at SDCC had me sold, then QS's inclusion made me a bit pissed, and now I'm eating my own words since he's the highlight.
Karmatron - 5/23/2014, 5:48 PM


I almost spit my cofee with that Gif!!!
ChiliConCarney - 5/23/2014, 5:48 PM
Hi. I'm a hater. Right here.

I'm sure it's a fine movie. As far as a depiction of the "Days of Future Past" story from the comics, it sounds very unfaithful thus, in my mind, crap.

By the way, it sounds like it's not even that good of a band-aid used to cover the broken timeline. This is all based on what I've heard and read so far. I'll judge it for myself when I can see if for free. REVERT!!!
Omarvls - 5/23/2014, 5:49 PM
GotG has a lot to live up to after


Who knew Marvel had so many great Characters translate on film so Masterfully
X-Men,Avengers and now its up too the Guardians of the Galaxy to maintain Marvel's rise
WhoDaFoo - 5/23/2014, 5:49 PM
Awesome movie. Deserves can hope for a billion, right?!
Karmatron - 5/23/2014, 5:49 PM
thanks to XMDOFP we will never see bastardized X-Men by the mouse

Praise the Lord!!! : D
