A funny paragraph from Fox News:
"X-Men: The Last Stand" took in almost $45 million on Friday and landed in the history books. It is now the second highest opener of all time, right behind "Star Wars: Attack of the Sith."
That's not fair! Comparing X3 with the combined opening stand of two Star Wars movies. Nevertheless, an impressive showing for X3.
I predict that Superman Returns will make a quarter billion dollars worldwide in its first week. That will include a $100 million-plus opening in North America. Bryan Singer left X3 for Superman Returns and I bet he'll make it count.
