‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Overpowers ‘Godzilla’

X-Men Days of Future Past

In typical summer superhero movie fashion, X-Men: Days of Future Past came, saw, and conquered this Memorial Day weekend. Things are still far from over, but studio estimates show that the CGI-packed action film will come out of this weekend pulling around $90.7 million.

This weekend’s other major release didn’t fare nearly as well, with $14.25 million in the bank and a current Rotten Tomatoes critic rating of 15%, Blended‘s box office performance shows that this could very well be the last co-starring outing for Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore in a film. Even before inflation is accounted for, this comedy’s weekend haul falls behind the duo’s successes of their past films, like 50 First Dates (2004), which made $39.9 million, and The Wedding Singer (1998), which made $18.9 million.

After an initial limited release last week, Jon Favreau’s Chef saw an expanded release this weekend and has earned $2.26 million (and a top ten chart position) in the process. The independent comedy film will see even more expansion within the coming week, so there’s a chance that it could climb up even further on the charts.
