X-Men: Days of Future Past

The fight between summer blockbusters has begun with X-Men: Days of Future Past and Godzilla, which held the number one title last weekend with $93.1 million. The monster movie remake was not enough of a pull to detract from the latest installment of the X-Men films, which took in $90.8 million.

Not only did Godzilla lose its top spot, but it also saw a 67% decrease from last weekend's pull, as its earnings was $30.9 million this Memorial Day weekend. Newcomer Blended - Adam Sandler's latest - debuted at number three with $14.2 million while Neighbors fell two spots to number four with $14 million.
