That's not entirely true. The trilogy built up those numbers by making a good film and then a great film. Then X3 got it's numbers largely off of X2's back.

X-Men - PB $75m -- US $157m - WW $296m
X2 - PB $110m -- US $214m - WW $407m
X3 - PB $210 -- US $234 - WW $459

XOW - PB $150 -- US $179 - WW $373

XFC - PB $160 -- US $146 - WW $353

Casual viewers skipping the subsequent film is more down to declining quality than a different cast.

I just have one of those faces. People come up to me and say, "What's wrong?" Nothing. "Well, it takes more energy to frown than it does to smile." Yeah, you know it takes more energy to point that out than it does to leave me alone? - Bill Hicks
