Yes! Variety is reporting that Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is tracking to make over $125 million (domestic) during Memorial Day weekend! The upcoming blockbuster releases worldwide, including the highly-coveted, second-highest box office market in China, on May 23rd.
If tracking become reality, this will make DOFP the highest-grossing film in the franchise, next to 2006’s THE LAST STAND, which brought in almost $123 million during it’s four-day Memorial Day launch.
Insiders and analysts predict the film will earn a total of $250 million in the states, which could make it the most financially successful film in the franchise (X3 made $234 million, FIRST CLASS made just $146 million domestically). Numbers in international markets will likely be incredible, with future releases in Japan (May 30) and Spain (June 6).
