no, in X1 and X2 it had nothing to do with selling the movie. The cast list is in tiny print on the posters and the films don't even have an opening credit cast list! Remember, Patrick Stewart was also billed first in X2.
I actually provided some kind of useful, relevant information to back up what I was saying regarding this pointless "lead actress" discussion...hint, hint.
