20th Century Fox & Marvel Entertainment’s X-Men: Apocalypse took over the global box office during four-day Memorial Day weekend with an estimated $80 million.
X-Men: Apocalypse topped the weekend with $65 million domestically for the Friday-through-Sunday from 4,150 theaters and about $80 million for the four-day Memorial Day weekend, but approximately $30 million less than X-Men: Days of Future Past‘s $110.6 million during Memorial Day 2014.
As of May 29, 2016, X-Men: Apocalypse has grossed $65 million in North America and $185.8 million in other territories for a worldwide total of $250.8 million, against a budget of $178 million.
Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass secures second place grossing $34.2 million in North America and $65 million in other territories for a worldwide total of $99.2 million, against a budget of $170 million.
Alice’s top performing market internationally was China where the film brought in an estimated $27.1 million followed by Mexico ($5m), Russia ($4.6m), Brazil ($4.1m), UK ($3.2m), Germany ($2.5m), Australia ($2.4m), Italy ($2.2m), Spain ($1.6m) and Argentina ($1.6M).
Alice Through the Looking Glass‘ gross is a huge drop from Alice in Wonderland’s opening weekend of $220.1 worldwide.
Despite Alice’s bad performance at box office, Disney is doing really good, it is about to pass $4 billion worldwide in record time thanks to the spectacular performance of Captain America: Civil War, Zootopia, and The Jungle Book.
