During its 8th weekend of release in the USA, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE brought in an estimated $276,998 from 250 domestic theaters during the weekend at the American box office; a 32.5% drop from last weekend’s haul of $410k.
Nearing $154.98 million in the USA, “Apocalypse” is currently the 7th highest-grossing X-Men film in the states (8th when taking price inflation into consideration). At this point, it definitely won’t 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, bringing in $378.8 million combined. It opens in Japan on August 11th, giving it a chance to make a little bit more money.
Although it struggled to find positive footing with a majority of critics, general audiences gave it a positive A- Cinemascore. A recent poll we conducted on Twitter also shows that the film has many fans.
