The mutants of past and future are commanding the Memorial Day weekend box office as X-Men: Days of Future Past puts up an opening day worthy of 2014's other big comic book movie releases. The other newcomer, counter-programmed Blended, got put through the blender by critics and emerged as another dud for former box office stud Adam Sandler.

Fox can only be thrilled with the estimated $36 million that X-Men: Days of Future Past from director Bryan Singer scored on Friday, including $8.1 million from late midnight showings. The mutant-fueled opening day starring the likes of Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen is playing right alongside this year's other big comic movies, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which earned $35.2 million and $36.9 million, respectively, on their opening days with the added benefit of 3D IMAX screenings that X-Men does not have. »
