Bryan Singer’s X-MEN: APOCALYPSE brought in an estimated $410,257 from 288 domestic theaters during the weekend at the American box office; a steady 54.7% drop from last weekend’s final million haul of $1.1 million.
Nearing a $154.5 million total in the USA, “Apocalypse” is currently the 7th highest-grossing X-Men film in the states (8th when taking price inflation into consideration). It won’t financially match its production budget of $178 million, locally. 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 have been a big help for this film, which strangely struggled to find positive footing with the majority of critics and mass interest from the domestic public, though audiences did give it a positive A- Cinemascore. Still, negative critic response and a familiar apocalyptic doomsday premise may or may not have lowered interest in the CGI action spectacle. Foreign territories brought in $380.7 million combined so far. The film opens in Japan on August 11th, giving it a chance to make a little bit more money.
Worldwide, “Apocalypse” has amassed $535.27 million, making it the 3rd highest-grossing “X-Men” film ever!
If you haven’t experienced the film in theaters, rush like Quicksilver to any theater that’s still playing it as its major theater count is coming to a close very soon! Your city may have a discount theater or two that will play “Apocalypse” up until the digital and home video release.
