Wolverine News: News Slows to a Trickle…

‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ pulled in $26.4 million this weekend, but receipts dropped 69% from last week’s opening, a staggering drop even in light of the success of the ‘Star Trek’ reboot.

That puts ‘Wolverine’ at $129.0 million gross to date, making it the #252nd domestic grossing film of all time, slashing past ‘Borat’, ‘Rocky IV’ and ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’.

With international box office added in, ‘Wolverine’ has acrued $208.7 million worldwide, clocking in as the #341st grossing film of all time worldwide, placing ‘Wolverine’ just ahead of ‘Australia’, ‘Braveheart’ and ‘American Pie’.

Note that with the ‘Wolverine’ movie premiere being a thing of the past, Wolverine news stories have slowed to a trickle, hence…

  1. yeah and we don’t get issue #74 like expected.

    At least you’ll have time for other reviews. Like the DK guide or Pocketbook guide. (If you do end up with a lot of time on your hands, I know you probably have a ton of stuff still to do.)

    Did you get a chance to play the game? Or have things just been too crazy?

  2. Thanks for the link to the Claremont/Wein interview. I found their remarks on the movie and the characters they created very interesting. Especially, that they were satisfied that Jackman caught the essence of the conflicted nature of Wolverine in this as opposed to Sabertooth’s lack of any desire for a sense of humanity. Wolverine’s inner struggles and day-to-day attempts at redemption and understanding himself are the reasons I have really become fascinated by this character.

    I found it interesting that Claremont and Wein were pleased for the most part with the movie, and since it’s their creation up there on the screen, it seems they would care the most about how he’s presented. Jackman did do a good actor’s job…the film’s done well…and there will be another movie. What more can we as fans ask for…a better story, different creative team next time!

    DiG, now that the crest of the wave has broken, so to speak, I hope you’re having some time to enjoy yourself. Thanks, as always, for this site and your reviews and comments.

  3. This is a great site for Wolverine fans to visit. I may not post often, but I always drop by to read your articles. Great job.
