Default Re: 'Days Of Future Past' BOX-OFFICE worldwide prediction

You can't say that people were sick of Wolverine based on those numbers. It was the quick decline that was the problem, but that is the result of bad word-of-mouth and an overall bad movie. That opening blows Cap out of the water. And as psylockecolossus mentioned, you factor in inflation, and XMO:W made quite a bit more than Cap.
These people can say what they want about the box-office performances of these x-Men films. But based on the marketing strategies of FOX and the critical response of X3/XOW, they still earned good money.
