“X-Men First Class” tops box office, doesn’t top previous X-films

Minus the notable stars and characters of the other “X-Men” films, “X-Men First Class” opened with $56 million, according to Box Office Mojo. That was enough for first place this weekend, ahead of “The Hangover II,” which made $32.4 million in its second weekend.

The “First Class” first weekend total is below all the other X-Men films but the first, which opened to $54.5 million in 2000.

With new, younger stars and different characters, I actually think this isn’t a bad number for the movie.  And given the positive reviews, word of mouth may help the film have smaller second-week dropoff.
