During the Memorial Day Weekend, the X-Men took over the box office with the latest installment, entitled X-Men: Days of Future Past.
The film debuted with $91 million to beat out last weekend’s top film, Godzilla, which earned another $31.4 million in its second weekend.
Days of Future Past is the second-highest opener in the X-Men franchise, after Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand debuted over Memorial Day weekend with $123 million in 2006. The film brings together a massive star-studded cast including Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Peter Dinklage and Ellen Page.
Furthermore, Days of Future Past opened No. 1 in 119 countries with $262 million, the highest grossing opening weekend worldwide of the X-Men franchise and the biggest Fox International opening weekend ever.
The Warner Bros. romantic comedy Blended, starring Adam Sandler opposite Drew Barrymore, debuted at No. 3 with a lackluster $14.2 million. In the movie, the actors team up for the third time, following The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates.
