Welcome to another edition of WEEKEND ROUNDUP, where we discuss this weekends box office results. The TOP 3 this weekend were X-Men: Days of Future Past, A Million Ways To Die In the West, and Maleficent.
Let's take a look at how the Top 3 did this weekend...
Disney's new live-action reimagining of the classic tale of Sleeping Beauty started off strong this weekend. Bringing in an impressive $69.4 million domestically, Maleficent is just the first of a number of live-action Disney films on the way, including Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella and Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book, both slated for next year.
Maleficent also managed to do well overseas, making $100.6 million, for a worldwide total of $170 million on a $180 million production budget.
2. X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
X-Men: Days of Future Past saw a huge drop this week, plummeting 70% down to $35.6 million this weekend. That put its domestic total at $162 million and its worldwide total at an impressive $500.2 million. Even with the significant drop in the second week, X-Men: Days of Future Past has managed to make more worldwide than any other X-Men film ever made.
3. A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST
Seth MacFarlane's new western-comedy, A Million Ways To Die In The West, didn't do nearly as well as I'm sure he was hoping for, bringing in only $16.8 million domestically and $27.1 million worldwide. Compared to his last film, 2012's Ted (which made $54.4 million on its opening weekend), A Million Ways... was a bit of a failure. It didn't help being up against some stiff competition. Hopefully this very entertaining comedy will be able to at least break even in the coming weeks.
Here's a quick rundown of this weekends results:
#1 - Maleficent - $69,431,298
#2 - X-Men: Days of Future Past - $32,551,098
#3 - A Million Ways To Die In the West - $16,797,385
