X-Men First Class is a massive disappointment at the domestic box office. It is going to be the worst grossing X-Men film WITHOUT inflation being counted and if we count inflation the picture gets even gloomier. However the word of mouth is positive and a sequel is planned, with the good will from this film in mind the sequel good do better numbers. Lets not forget each of the X-Men movies grew in gross from the last.

However looking at the worldwide sales X-Men first class is at $160 million in sales outside of America...THIS IS MORE THAN X-Men & almost more than Wolvering & X-Men 2's ENTIRE RUN Overseas...so X-Men First Class is a HUGE HIT overseas and it looks to topple X-Men 3 meaning it could be the most popular X-Men movie outside of America. (obviously inflation matters but the charts don't show overseas adjusted figures so lets not think too much bout that)

Panda 2 and Hangover 2 almost neck n neck....Panda used to be wayy behind in weekly sales, looks like Panda is showing better legs.

Midnight In PAris CONTNUES a Great Run....doubling its total gross through only its 4th week gross alone...it looks to make up its $30 Million budget in America alone.

Rest is doing as expected.

As a fan of the X-Men comics I liked the storyline of First Class better than all the others. Super 8 was a great movie though and deserves it's success.

The Empire Strikes Back!

Love the product, not the company. They love your money, not you.

I'm a big fan of the X-Men but I haven't seen the movie yet. Super 8 was pretty good but it wasn't all too special.

Why haven't you seen the movie yet? Do you plan to?

Xmen First Class is my fav. Xmen movie thus far. It's a shame many aren't giving it a chance after Last Stand and Wolverine (although I don't blame them as those are some pretty "meh" to "ugh" movies). Also, how did it cost $160m? Sure there were some big special effects but it wasn't out of hand or insane or anything... and the cast wasn't all that big name either.

A little late,aren't we?
OT : First Class is the best X-Men movie ever,but it was made more for the fans,than for the money.The majority of the casual crowd doesn't like prequels.
The Hangover 2 looks like it will end below the first one,domestically.
Super 8 is doing good business for a niche movie.

EDIT: Oh,and Bridesmaid had an excellent hold!Easily the best comedy movie of the year so far.



                               

I'm so happy to see Pirates 4 doing so well worldwide. It was a much better movie than Pirates 3.

I'm eager to see how Potter will do. It's obvious it's going to cross the 1 billion mark but I want to see it with my own eyes!

I'm 100% sure Transformers 3 will be awesome. Form what I've heard they learned a lot from the mistakes of the second movie and they will do things right this time. Hoping for a big success!

So Green Lantern will be in next week's charts?

The movie was so much better than I expected it to be. I loved Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern, and I never expected he'd be able to pull it off.

And I really need to get around to seeing On Stranger Tides.  I love Pirates of the Caribbean, but my friends went and saw it without me, and I haven't found anybody else willing to go yet.



Wow I haven't seen any of these movies!

Super 8 already broke even in its first week, impressive
