X-citing! And X-cellent!
X-Men: First Class was the number one movie at the box office weekend, knocking off last week's winner (and box office record-breaker), The Hangover Part II!
The movie made $21 million on Friday and is predicted to make about $50-60 million by the end of the weekend.
That's a solid number, but isn't quite as impressive as the franchise's previous movies, which totaled around $160 million.
Not sure why the movie isn't doing better. It's been getting great reviews, but it seems like this movie hasn't been promoted as well as a comic movie with a legion of fans should have.
Hopefully, word will get out and the movie will grab some bigger numbers.
Meanwhile, here's the weekend's top 5 movies:
1. X-Men: First Class — $21.0 mil
2. The Hangover Part II — $10.5 mil
3. Kung Fu Panda 2 — $6.3 mil
4. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides — $5.1 mil
5. Bridesmaids — $3.6 mil
So…what did U see this weekend?
