Having debuted this past weekend with an impressive $237.8 million worldwide, 20th Century Fox’s X-Men solo spinoff Logan has now helped to propel the Wolverine trilogy beyond the $1 billion mark at the global box office.
By close of play yesterday, Logan has grossed $263.2 million, of which $104.2 million comes from North America, and $159 million from international markets. Throw in the $414.8 million gross of The Wolverine and $373.1 million haul of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and the total now stands at $1.051.1 billion for the fan-favourite mutant’s solo adventures.
Looking at the ten X-Men films combined, the franchise has pulled in $4.643 billion, and will likely end up close to the $5 billion mark once Logan finishes its run.
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Logan reunites Hugh Jackman with The Wolverine director James Mangold and also stars Hugh Jackman, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Elise Neal.
