X-Men: First Class Comes In First Place

| Filed under: Film FlickersJames McAvoyBusiness Blitz


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?

    X-Men Wolverine made 85 million it's opening weekend.
    X-Men The Last Stand made 102 million it's opening weekend.
    Where is this 160 million coming from?

    Perez, I don't know where you get this $160M from, but the very first X Men opened witn $54M. Obviously, adjusted for inflation, it would be more today, but nowhere near a$160M.

    This is a new franchise with all new characters. It still needs to build an audience.

    You have Friday numbers. Good reporting once again.

    Saw X-Men. It was actually really good! I wasn't expecting much, so I was pleasantly surprised.

    Re: tiggerchick5 – But these aren't new characters. True comic book fans know exactly who these characters are. I saw the movie, and it was the best X-Men movie I have ever seen. I was expecting to see a flop, but I couldn't believe how good this movie was. I really hope that the word spreads quick and people go and watch this movie.
