X-Men: Days of Future Past is already on its way to a blockbuster opening weekend. The film earned $8 million in Thursday evening "previews" and is well on its way to the 20th Century Fox goal of making $100 million for the entire Memorial Day Weekend.
As we stated in our X-Men: Days of Future Past review, this is by far the best X-Men movie so far, and honestly, could be the best movie you will see this summer.
We think that Fox's $100 million goal is a little light. We think that by the time the holiday weekend is complete, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence's movie should expect earnings closer to $120 million.
