Wolverine Wins

Well, I highly doubt that anyone would surprised that X-Men Origins: Wolverine would be leading the pack for box office sales. The thing that I was surprised at was the hug gap between X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. I will say, I do want to see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, but I just do not understand why other movies would premiere the same night as X-Men Origins: Wolverine, ha.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — You can’t keep a good X-Man down.

Hugh Jackman’s movie prequel “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” has leaped to the top of the box office with an $87 million opening weekend.

That puts it right in the pack with the three previous “X-Men” movies in which Jackman played the character of mutant superhero Wolverine.

The trilogy’s final chapter, “X-Men: The Last Stand,” had the franchise’s best opening with $102.8 million.

But “Wolverine” came in ahead of the first two movies. “X-Men” did $54.5 million in its first weekend and “X2: X-Men United” did $85.6 million.

Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner’s romantic comedy “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past” debuted in second place with $15.3 million.
