X-Men: Days of Future Past will gross $111 million by the end of the four-day holiday weekend, according to studio estimates distributed early Monday. Factoring in overseas grosses, Bryan Singer's film has topped $300 million worldwide in its first few days.
That is the biggest opening of any movie in the X-Menfranchise, and it kicks off what should be a stellar summer for its distributor, Fox.
The studio already scored two hits in April — Rio 2 and The Other Woman. While the former has grossed just $122 million in the United States, it has surpassed $400 million worldwide thanks to its massive popularity overseas.
