X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST crosses $500 million in worldwide box office!

xmen

In its second week of release, Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST landed in second place at the box office. The mutants took home a $32.55 million, dropping 64% from its previous weekend. That drop is a bit of an improvement when compared to 2006’s X-MEN: THE LAST STAND, but still somewhat unexpected due to positive word-of-mouth and raving reviews. The domestic total currently stands at $162 million.

In foreign markets, the film gained $95.6 million over the weekend, bringing its total to an impressive $338 million. With a release due in Spain next week, the film is expected to cross the $400 million mark pretty soon.

The big news? “Days of Future Past” is the first “X-Men” film to cross the coveted $500 million mark, worldwide!

  1. It’s awesome to see how huge this is world wide, but also a bit surprising that domestically it’s not as big. Still, it’s an improvement on the past several installments here and will hopefully have a lengthy run. But yeah, it looks like overseas the sky is the limit. 🙂

    • I think it was a similar situation for THE WOLVERINE. Foreign markets really helped make that film a success, financially speaking. I think there’s such a big drop off in the second weekend, because studios tend to forget about marketing past the first week of release. Plus I think X-Men films skew towards more mature audiences, so it doesn’t get as much replay among younger kids.

  2. Worldwide number is a great success (guessing will be at least 700 mil.), However ı expected Dofp to pass Last stand in domesticly. Now it seems will not happen, but still I have a little hope about that.

  3. Well, the US domestic box office was down over Memorial day weekend (just look at the nose dive Godzilla suffered), and it seems to have had a minor adverse effect on X-Men’s takings.

    Memorial day weekend is a notoriously mercurial release date, and it just happened to go slightly against Fox’s favour this year. But listen: There’s no way to paint this movie’s turnover as anything other than a huge success, and by the time it’s all said and done it will sit comfortably as the highest grossing entry in the franchise, and arguably the best.

    WooHoo!!
