Box Office Breakdown: ‘X-Men’ Battle ‘Godzilla’ for Top Spot

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. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also fell two spots to number five with $7.8 million.

Box Office Breakdown: ‘Godzilla’ Takes Down ‘Neighbors’

Bryan Cranston in 'Godzilla'

With $93.1 million earned at the box office this weekend, the latest Godzilla seems to justify Hollywood's thirst for remaking every film previously made.

Having (easily) clawed its way to the top, Godzilla bumped last week's number one film, Neighbors, down to number two with its $25 million. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also fell one spot to number three with $16.8 million while Million Dollar Arm debuted at number four with $10.5 million. The Other Woman fell two spots to number five with $6.3 million.

Bryan Cranston: Godzilla Couldn’t Make Meth

Bryan CranstonBryan Cranston thinks that Godzilla would be "horrible" at making crystal meth.

The Breaking Bad actor, who sold the drug as Walter "Heisenberg" White in the series, joked about the monster not being able to make it at the premiere of his new movie at the Odeon in London's Leicester Square last night. "I think Godzilla would be horrible at making crystal meth. You've got to be very refined to be able to make it. He's a monster, you know, they have a very destructive nature," he said.

The 58-year-old actor, who stars alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen in the film directed by Gareth Edwards, also claims his character, nuclear scientist Joe Brody, is more like him than Walter White or Hal, who he played in Malcolm In The Middle: "They're all pretty different. I'm not like hal and I'm nothing like Walter White. Maybe this guy in this movie is most like me."
