‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Earns $80M At Four-Day Domestic Box Office

Apocalypse Box Office Tracking

X-Men: Apocalypse will be having a very strong showing this Memorial Day weekend. Apocalypse has already earned $65 million for the three-day weekend. When the four-day gross is added in, the film will be coming in at a reported $80 million from 4,150 theaters.

Even with these numbers, Apocalypse won’t be beating out its other X-Men competition. Memorial Day weekend has been popular for X-Men. 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand made $122.9M and X-Men: Days of Future Past earned $110.6M.

The main competition this weekend for Apocalypse was Disney’s sequel to Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through The Look Glass. The film made $28.1 million and it’s four-day debut is estimated be around $35 million. While Disney has been dominating the box office with hits like The Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War, Disney distribution chief Dave Hollis is disappointed with Alice’s results.

“It’s disappointing. The domestic opening is wildly less than what every tracking service had us at. We’re in the tentpole business. More often than not, they turn out to be huge successes. We’ll continue to take those big bets. In this instance, it didn’t turn out as we hoped.”

X-Men: Apocalypse is now in theaters!

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

    So X-men was cannibalized by Alice.They should have open separately.

    • unpaidpundit

      Hollywood should probably space their “tent pole” movie out more. A big part of “Deadpool’s” success was that it was released in February.

      • Marquis de Sade

        Then how does one explain the disappointment of bvs? – it too was released uncontested, and in theory it had (at least) 3 to 4 weeks with little to no competition, but after 2 weeks, it fell to a Melissa McCarthy movie.

        • Peter James

          BvS opened to $168 Million, though.

          I wouldn’t call that a disappointment.
          Especially when only 3 other superhero movies, opened higher than that.

          • Marquis de Sade

            It was expected to open big, but to fall off the cliff at such a rapid rate uncontested during its second week, was the issue.

  • Marquis de Sade

    …meanwhile, CA:CW is crushin’ all in its’ wake with an astounding cume of $1.103 BILLION (and counting)!

    • Darth Kal-El

      Box office doesn’t mean quality jackass. Transformers makes a billion every time. Avatar made 2.7 billion. Alice in Wonderland a billion. So box office doesn’t equal quality Apocalypse so a fantastic film. But coming off two superhero movies released earlier it was not going to make as much. But it did just fine. So you are a pathetic idiot. Typical Marvel fanboy

      • Carl

        Right but Civil War got great reviews as well.

      • Chris W

        What are you, 12?

        • Darth Kal-El

          Typical response

        • TomDJ

          He obviously is if he liked BvS

      • Marquis de Sade

        Oh, but in your infantile eyes, the mediocre failures that is dceu’s mos/bvs equals quality??? – Go back to your sandbox, dc fangurl! Grown folks is talkin’!

        • Darth Kal-El

          First off Man if Steel is a masterpiece and the intelligent agree like John Campea and Kristin Harloff. To suggest otherwise shows you are just a vovond fanboy and honestly pathetic. Typical for your kind. Typical for you blind pathetic fanboys

          • Chris W

            lol @ citing youtube people like their opinion matters anymore than anyone else’s. You’re definitely a child.

          • Darth Kal-El

            Your are such an idiot loser.

          • Chris W

            I’m rubber you’re glue.

            …and that means what? You sad lil’ monkey, only a desperate child would hide behind the validation of two insignificant you tube fanboy critics.

    • Napi

      What the F%&$ is wrong with you? You ALWAYS mentioning BvS and the DCEU. What’s the deal? What’s the point?

      • Marquis de Sade

        Y’know, there’s less subtler ways to get into my pants than always attackin’ me, boo. All you’re doin’ is maskin’ your affections for me with needless hostilities. Not once did I mention that rudderless ship that you pretend to adore.

        • Technofied

          you want me to copy paste all your hate comments on BVS just to prove his point you lifeless shi*? You’re nothing but a waste of space! you think Disney/Marvel sits on top of everything? Good for them and good for you? This explains how insecure you Marvel …tches are. Instead of being on top, you open up every thread that is comic book related to shi. on it! I’d never waste a single second of my life shi. on Disney/Marvel coz I don’t give a rats .ss how they are doing,

          • Marquis de Sade

            It wasn’t hate, but valid criticisms…besides’, it would be redundant to crap on dceu when what they produce is already considered (critically) celluloid diarrhea.

          • GRKDC

            Lol money don’t mean shit…I loved XMEN! Deserves so much more

          • Napi

            You’re such an imbecile. Im just waiting for DISQUS to finally add a block user option

          • Marquis de Sade

            Y’know darlin’, no one is forcin’ you to read my comments…so please feel free to skip over them, seein’ as how they bring you so much distress. (Luv you, boo!)

          • Napi

            Don’t call me “darling” you fagg*t lifeless piece of sh*t, I’m a boy.

          • Marquis de Sade

            Ooops, my bad! But in my defense, you do have dc fangurl tendencies…Btw, boy, ain’t it pass your bedtime?

      • w0undedmagic

        Only stupid people feel the need to constantly add negativity to the conversation. It takes brains to add something of substance. Some people have the capacity to look beyond box office numbers and the ripeness of a tomato to tell them how they feel about a film. “Marquis de Sade” (who ironically, is most likely clueless to the historical significance of his namesake), has no substance. He just regurgitates the same hate-bait and keeps abusing that apostrophe key because his tiny brain can’t come up with anything else.

      • TomDJ

        ….what post are you replying to?

  • Chris W

    I thoroughly disliked this film. This was like the X-men version of Origins to me. From Apocalypse’s ridiculous & inconsistent powers, Singer botching Phoenix again, mystique being a leader, to magneto/jeans magical house building powers, it was a lot of eye rolling.

    On the positive: new young cast is good, nightcrawlers powers are sweet, and both wolverine & magneto had a scene each where they were pretty ruthless.

    I’m fine with going forward with this continuity. Just get rid of Singer and JLaw. I think they’ve got a lot to work with, just embrace the damned source material. Disney/Marvel and Deadpool showed us that you can adapt the characters pretty faithfully and make a hit as well as a good film.

    • Darth Kal-El

      You are an idiot

      • Chris W

        You’re a wiz at contributing to discussions.

        • Darth Kal-El

          Typical response from your kind.

          • Chris W

            Tell me more oh eloquent one.

    • Lupin

      You guys just come out and say it. You want all comic book movies to be Disney/Marvel formula action comedies.
      Yuck!

      • Chris W

        So making the characters in the film align to their counterparts in the comics is the marvel/disney formula? Gotya…

      • Marquis de Sade

        Oh don’t hate cuz MONEY and SUCCESS prefers to fill the coffers of MCU/DISNEY.

        • Lupin

          Hating? U sound hilarious. How much of that money are you getting?
          Bauahahaha ridiculous

    • unpaidpundit

      “magneto/jeans magical house building powers”

      Did you know that the X-Men were once broke, and tried to become super powered construction workers? It happened in volume 1.

  • WarrenWII

    how is $65m a strong opening? on memorial weekend, and below many previous X-men movies. Its a really bad number, man. Fox wont be happy with this, being their so called biggest X-Men movie yet
