Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: APOCALYPSE brought in an estimated $9.9 million (domestic) during the weekend, a 56.6% drop from last weekend’s haul of $22.3 million. Now standing at $136.3 million, the film is predicted to make around $160-$165 million in the states, which is below the film’s production budget of $178 million. To compare, the first “X-Men” in 2000 finished with $157 million, “Days of Future Past” with $233 million and “Deadpool” with $362 million.

“Apocalypse” is now ahead of THE WOLVERINE numbers.

Audiences overseas are bringing the heat, with the film earning $339 million from foreign territories; the worldwide total now stands at $476.9 million.

Despite praise from fans and the general public with an A- Cinemascore, “Apocalypse” received one of the worst Rotten Tomatoes scores compared to any other film in the X-Men franchise (besides “X-Men Origin: Wolverine”) with 48%.
