I'm more inclined to agree with this earlier post of yours...

In its remaining theatrical run, The Last Stand was unable to match what it made in its first four days. To my knowledge, that doesn't happen very often, even amongst bombs like Speed Racer. There's a reason for that. In my opinion, the movie didn't meet audience expectations, and it hurt the movie's performance.

After this summer alone, I would hope the X-Men film makers step-up their game.
