As expected, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” was the box office winner over the holiday weekend, taking in an impressive $111 million and knocking big boy “Godzilla” out of the top spot. It looks like “Godzilla” failed to impress audiences over the long weekend, it dropped significantly, taking in just over $39 million. The box office loser “Blended” disappointed on it’s opening weekend, raking in only $18 million. I guess third time isn’t a charm for Sandler and Barrymore. Rounding out the weekend were “Neighbors” with $17 million (bringing the total to $116 million for the film), and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” which earned just $10 million in its fourth week in theaters.
Next weekend’s titles include Disney’s “Maleficent” starring Angelina Jolie and Seth MacFarlane’s highly anticipated comedy “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” Sounds like fun for the whole family!
