X-Men: Days of Future Past becomes the highest-grossing movie of 2014 so far

xmen-15After helping the X-Men franchise to hit a combined $3 billion earlier in the week, Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has now pushed its worldwide total to $712.7 million this weekend, overtaking rival Marvel superhero movies The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($703.7 million) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($711.2 million) to become the highest-grossing movie of the year so so far.

Days of Future Past still faces some competition to close 2014 as the biggest earner, with Transformers: Age of Extinction, Guardians of the Galaxy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Interstellar, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies all likely to enjoy solid box office returns.

X-Men: Days of Future Past sees X-Men veterans Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Lucas Till (Havok), Halle Berry (Storm), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) and Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) joined in the cast by franchise newcomers Evan Peters (American Horror Story) as Quicksilver, Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) as Warpath, Omar Sy (The Intouchables) as Bishop, Fan Bingbing (Iron Man 3) as Blink, Adan Canto (The Following) as Sunspot, Evan Jonigkeit (The Following) as Toad, Josh Helman (Mad Max: Fury Road) as William Stryker and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) as Bolivar Trask.

    Hunger Games 3 you say? Good. Something to top Trans4mers. Hobbit 3 may even do it. Xmen topped cap and Spidey, so it’s a victory no matter what. I sure liked it, that movie was supa tight.

    That’s great! “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” is without a hint of doubt the best X-Men film ever and definitely one of the greatest comic book adaptations of all time. And there’s no denying that it deserves to be ranked among the best films of the year so far. Such a great example of a high-budgeted mainstream movie that also happens to be a groundbreaking masterpiece. I really, really hope it becomes the highest-grossing X-Men film domestically. It absolutely deserves it.

    I just saw this movie and by far was the best movie I have seen this year. Never a boring minute in this excellent movie. Bravo .

    Hunger Games and The Hobit come out too late in the year to be serious contenders.

    It remains to be seen if the atrocity that is Transformers 4 will keep up it’s numbers after people realize how truly awful it is.

    Truly doubt that the TMNT can come up with these types of numbers.

      As long as a film is released in 2014, its entire box office counts towards the highest-grossing of the year so The Hobbit and Mockingjay will still count.
