X-Men: The Last Stand had the fourth largest weekend opening in box office history making $107 million during Memorial weekend. It comes behind 3 boring films, Spider-Man, Star Wars: Episode III and Shrek 2. If you think about that, it’s pretty sad. You can actually hear FOX going “cha-ching”, while wiping their asses with $100 bills.
Superman Returns will take #1 in records because, as we all know, Superman trumps Spider-Man and a superhero in partial body hugging red/blue spandex is more entertaining to watch than one in full body hugging red/blue spandex.
Update: The official number is now $107 million for a 3 day opening, $120 million for a 4 day opening.
