With an “A” Cinemascore and 91% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes from 195 critics, X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST easily took the number one spot at the box office, earning an estimated $91.4 million domestic over the 3-day weekend from over 4,000 locations. With Memorial Day estimates included, the film raked in over $110.6 million during the 4-day holiday haul. Foreign markets had impressive numbers, earning $191 million for a worldwide total of $301.6 million.
The film made $40 million more than last Summer’s THE WOLVERINE and $36 million more than X-MEN: FIRST CLASS; it ranked just below X-MEN: THE LAST STAND ($102.8 million). It was barely unable to beat recent superhero additions “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” ($95 million) and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” ($91.6) million, though critical scores were higher.

@XMenFilms Bryan Singer put all the good things of the X-Franchise in one film. Best X-Movie of all and Best Comic Book Movie of 2014.
