Besides being the top-grossing film in the “X-Men” series, Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST earned the title for highest-grossing movie of 2014 for two weeks with $733.5 million. “Transformers: Age of Extinction” has took its place with a $752.5 million haul. In its eighth weekend at the domestic box office, the film garnered $1.04 million from 655 theaters, bringing its total to $229 million. X-MEN: THE LAST STAND still stands as the highest-grossing X-Men film in the USA with $234 million.

Thanks to its success with both critics (92% fresh) and the general public (A Cinemascore), the mutants of future and past have given 20th Century Fox a successful Summer, along with the studios’ other big hits “Rio 2” and “Dawn of the Planet of The Apes.” DOFP succeeded Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” ($712 million) and Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ ($704 million).

  1. Still the #1 superhero movie of the year, and it should finish in the top 5 movies of the year as a whole (maybe even top 3) with only the final Hobbit film likely to overtake it.

  2. It will beat Spiderman not only at the domestic and in worldwide total, but also in foreign box office revenues (X-Men right now at 502 million, Spider-Man at 504 million).
