BOX OFFICE: WOLVERINE Franchise Passes $1 Billion Worldwide As LOGAN Passes $100 Million Domestic
On Tuesday, Logan exceeded expectations at the North American box office with a haul of $8.6 million to take its current domestic haul to $104.2 million. That in itself is impressive, but when you add the movie's overseas opening of $159 million, the Wolverine trilogy (if you want to call it that given how standalone each of them has been) has now clawed its way past the $1 billion mark worldwide.
Thanks to Logan, the Wolverine trilogy has now passed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. Hit the jump for details on that and some surprising news about what's to come this weekend...
X-Men Origins: Wolverine earned $373 million back in 2009, while 2013's The Wolverine would gross a total of $414 million. How much higher is Logan going to go? That obviously remains to be seen!
Deadline reports that Logan could end up taking the #1 spot again this weekend, beating Kong: Skull Island in the process. For that to happen, the iconic monster's new movie will need to earn just $50 million, while Wolverine's final adventure falls less than 50%. It's too soon to say whether or not that is going to happen, but it would be a huge victory for Fox for the R-Rated release to remain on top.
