Box Office Actuals: 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Tallies $90.8m, 'Godzilla' Falls Hard

And Adam Sandler's Blended opens weak

X-Men: Days of Future Past box officeFor the three day weekend X-Men: Days of Future Past added another $100,000 to estimates, coming in at $90.8 million while tallying $110.5 million domestically for the four-day Memorial Day weekend and a $301.5 million worldwide total after four days in release. Interestingly enough, it's only the second largest opening for an X-Men film despite the rave reviews and "A" CinemaScore as 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, often considered one of the worst of the seven X-Men films released, hold the highest opening at $102.7 million.

After a massive opening weekend, Godzilla fell 66.8% as X-Men took most of its audience. However, considering tracking only had the film opening around $70 million its opening weekend, which would have also been considered a solid opening for the monster movie, this weekend's $30.9 million ain't too shabby.

The weekend's other new wide release was the Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore comedy Blended, which was destroyed by critics and opened to the tune of $14.2 million. As far as Sandler films go, this is only slightly better than 2012's That's My Boy and worse than 2000's Little Nicky. It's also worse than the openings for both of his previous teamings with Barrymore -- Fifty First Dates ($39.8m) and The Wedding Singer ($18.8m) -- from 2004 and 1998 respectively and that's not adjusted for inflation.

Finally, Jon Favreau's Chef added 426 theaters and brought in $2.2 million. If you haven't seen it, see it.

    Chef technically got 2.26 and I guessed 2.25. But because you only measure to the the hundred-thousand and not the ten-thousand, I got 4 points instead of 5. The fact that I took the time to mention this is pretty pathetic, and it shows how overly competitive I am.

      I wouldn't call you overly competitive at all, I would say the same thing. I have wondered many times how to handle situations like this because you aren't the first to lose a point as a result, but you are the first to bring it up. Perhaps I ought to extend it one more decimal to make it fair. After all, if you can predict it that far I should at least include it.

      I know, not the answer you want since you don't get the extra point, but I will begin extending the decimal places in future weeks.
