The Wolverine opened up at number one just like everyone thought it would, but its $55 million take was on the lighter side of expectations with studio estimates leaning more towards a $70 million opening. While initially this would be considered a disappointment, The Wolverine pulled in $86 million from the foreign box office and with a budget of only $115 million, the film is already sitting at almost $150 million after one weekend of release. The gross was on par with 2011’s [amazon_link id=”B004LWZW4C” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]X-Men: First Class[/amazon_link] which opened with $55.1 million.

The Conjuring held over amazingly well in its second weekend. Normally horror movies fall off the face of the Earth in their second weeks, but the James Wan-directed feature managed to pull in $22 million. After two weeks the $20 million film has grossed almost $100 million worldwide.
