After helping the X-Men franchise to hit a combined $3 billion earlier in the week, Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has now pushed its worldwide total to $712.7 million this weekend, overtaking rival Marvel superhero movies The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($703.7 million) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($711.2 million) to become the highest-grossing movie of the year so so far.

Days of Future Past still faces some competition to close 2014 as the biggest earner, with Transformers: Age of Extinction, Guardians of the Galaxy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Interstellar, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies all likely to enjoy solid box office returns.

X-Men: Days of Future Past sees X-Men veterans Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Lucas Till (Havok), Halle Berry (Storm), Anna Paquin »
