This was easily my favorite film of the summer. It's performance was underwhelming at the box-office, but I would still call it a decent hit. Especially when you go by WW gross. I consider it a reboot, so it's not too surprising it didn't blow-up bigger. The Batman reboot opened to $49 million I believe and the Singer Superman film opened around $50 million-ish. Both topped out at $200 million, but in the case of Batman Begins, it's return to quality was the big thing really. It was rebuilding it's tarnished brand like X-Men. I expect the sequel to perform even better in two years. Follow the same arc as the initial Singer films.

Glad it crossed $350m worldwide and would like to have had $150m domestic but oh well. As long as it gets a sequel I'm going to be happy.
I mean, as noted G.I. Joe is getting one. The Narnia films stay alive due to worldwide figures. Hell, even Pirates 4 didn't do it's budget domestically($1B worldwide though) so I'm confident FOX will, in this case, do the right thing and give us Second Class!!!

The tricky thing about X-Men is that no matter what it will have other movies... The Wolverine is coming up, X4 sounds more and more likely (ughhhh). So it's not like FC was the last X-Men movie they were going to make and unsure if thy would make more after.

It makes the whole "logically there should be a sequel" thing harder to work out. Especially because it IS Fox. Other studios seem a lot more forgiving about BO numbers > sequel. Let's just cross our fingers that the critical acclaim and the fact that many people only decided to see it when it was already out of theatres will mean major DVD/BR sales... enough for a sequel. Man do we ever need a sequel.

In any of the new X-Men movies, I just want Fass as Mags and McAvoy as Prof X and I'll be extremely happy.

To be honest I'm cool if no there's 2nd class film and just X-Men 4. I would like to see Emma, Havok and Banshee again and I would like to see how Cyclops, Jean and Storm became a X-Men member but do we really need to have a film for that especially the box-office performance of XFC isn't that good.

X-Men 4 would be more successful in the box-office.

I disagree. XMFC numbers were low BECAUSE this movie followed Wolverine and X3. FC restored people's faith in the franchise but I think in a way that means people are way more interested in Second Class than X4. I'm sure all the fanboys want their original X-Men back but I'm pretty sure the GA wouldn't be so interested in X4. Despite FC's critical success, X4 would still be the sequel to X3, the X-Men movie most people tend to prefer to ignore/see as an unfortunate AU. X4 would come out what, 8 years after its predecessor? People would go rewatch X3 to remember what happened so they could prep for the sequel, remember just how crap a movie it really is, and steer clear of X4.

I think too that the GA doesn't have the attention span for X4 8 years after its predecessor. Especially with all this flip flopping back and forth in the movies timeline. 2000s, then 1980s, then 1960s, then 1980s, then 2000s, then 1970s.

I'm not a fanboy, I'm a general audience member. My only tie to X-Men is that I loved the cartoon when I was little. I would certainly line up to see XMFC2 but I'm debating seeing Wolverine cuz the first one was so bad and you'd have to pay me a tidy sum of money to go watch X4 considering how wretched X3 was. And those are opinions I'm certainly not alone on. :/ XMFC being a critical success does not beget critical success in the two other X-Men movie lines.

No it won't be more successful. It will be a really expensive movie and frankly speaking x-men's boxoffice potential has a limit. It cannot gross more than 260 million domestically. X4 would easily cost $250+ million if the entire cast returns.

I would prefer a sequel to X-men:FC on a $130-135 million budget. Will easily do $180+ million domestically because of the good will this movie has created.

Well the entire cast of X3 will not return, just some of them but not all of them, thats for sure.

it would make more since to make a first class sequel for about 140 to 150 million than doing a x4 for a 250 million budget even the lone ranger movie had a 250 million budget so dont tellme x4 wouldnt cost between 200 and 250 million

i agree a first class sequel would be a better option you could do it for between 140 and 150 millon and it would do 180 to 200 million domestic fox is greedy so they will make x4 and it will cost around 250 million to make and wont gross its budget back

X4 is never going to happen. I can't even fathom how fox could pull the cast back together, let alone a believable/workable story. A FC sequel will bring the biggest bang for the buck. I like how you bring up the "good will" FC has brought. I agree, and I think there was a lot of positive word of mouth and fan/critic reaction that will continue and attach itself to a sequel film. Couple that with the fact that the lead actors of this film are becoming bigger and bigger stars. It only makes for big BO numbers in the future.

X4 doesn't have to have a $250 million budget

Visual effects are cheaper now and I doubt all the characters who died and depowered in X3 will come back. The only A-lister actors that has to come back are Hugh and Halle.

It's very possible that 4 & 5 would be filmed back to back to save money.

X4 wouldn't cost $250 million. Maybe with marketing, but not to make. The reason X3 cost so much was because the cast only signed up for 2 films originally, so contracts needed to be made for X3. Because they were needed to complete the trilogy, they got a nice payday.

Contracts need to be made for X-Men 4 too, just like they did for The Last Stand. The only reason it would be cheaper now is because both the actors and franchise don't maintain the same leverage they did in 2005 and 2006.
