Wolverine News: Opening Weekend Officially at $85.1 Million

‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ did much better at the box office opening weekend than most had originally predicted (but less than the final weekend estimate). Friday posted $34.4 million (with $5 million from the midnight shows), Saturday came in at $29.3 million and Sunday at $21.3 for a weekend total of $85.1 million.

Wow.

To put that in perspective, ‘Wolverine’ already is the #518 domestic grossing film of all time, having slashed past ‘Die Hard’, ‘Alien’ and ‘Cloverfield’.

With international box office estimated at $73 million, ‘Wolverine’ has amassed $158.1 million worldwide, clocking in as the #478 grossing film of all time worldwide. That puts ‘Wolverine’ just ahead of ‘Crimson Tide’, ‘License to Kill’ and ‘Scooby-Doo’.
