So far the film has made $162.1 million in North America, which is more than "X-Men: First Class" ($146 million), "The Wolverine" ($132 million) and the first "X-Men" ($157 million) made over their entire runs, but less than "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" ($179 million), "X2: X-Men United" ($214 million) and "X-Men: The Last Stand" ($234 million).   Globally, however, it's a different story. The film's $500.2 million is well above the $459.4 million that "X-Men: The Last Stand" made in 2006, which was previously the top-grossing film in the franchise -- again, not counting for inflation.   Disney's "Maleficent" proved magical this weekend, »
