Posted this in the News thread, but since this could lead to an interesting discussion, Ill make it its own thread.
X-Men is at #20 in TotalFilm magazine's:
'The 32 Most Successful Movie Franchises Of All Time'
Bond, Star Wars, X-Men and more...
Its a cool read; and would be interesting to learn how many jumps it does next year, after Days of future past ends its run in theatres.
