Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: APOCALYPSE brought in an estimated $5.2 million from 2,632 theaters during the weekend at the American box office; a 47.5% drop from last weekend’s haul of $9.9 million.
Now standing at $146 million, the film is not expected to match its 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 $363 million.
International audiences are helping the film out, with it earning $364 million from multiple foreign territories.
Worldwide, “Apocalypse” has amassed $510 million, making it the 3rd highest-grossing “X-Men” film ever.
Despite praise from fans and the general public with an A- Cinemascore, the film 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%.
In related news, DEADPOOL finally ended its run with an impressive final domestic gross of $363 million. Worldwide, the film earned $780.4 million.
