X-Men Sequel Storms British Box Office Opening Weekend
The latest X-Men movie has stormed to the top of the British box office, just days after exceeding the $110 million mark in the U.S.
X-Men: Days of Future Past, starring Hugh Jackman as clawed mutant Wolverine, took $14.5 million in its opening weekend, defeating monster movie Godzilla, which took a measly $4.3 million in comparison.
The X-Men sequel also conquered the U.S., smashing the $110 million mark at the U.S. box office over the same weekend.
Zac Efron's comedy Neighbors fell to third on the U.K. chart with takings of $1.9 million and the top five was rounded out by animation Postman Pat, which raked in $1.2 million, in fourth place and Adam Sandler's new comedy Blended coming in fifth with $1.1 million.
