X-Men Origins: Wolverine already topped all rivals at it’s debut, American box-office saw it reach $87 million over the weekend. Position right now? No. 1, also Wolverine is the first major debut of this season, a much-awaited summer season despite the fact that it’s still early May. “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” is distributed Twentieth Century Fox, a unit of News Corp. Global winning, worldwide, for Wolverine are estimated around $160 million.
Thriller movie Obsessed was last weeks champion, with a haul of $12.2 million. It is currently No. 3 in this financial battle of weekend warriors. Number two is romantic comedy “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past” with $15.3 million. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a prequel to the X-Men film trilogy and is primarily set roughly ten to fifteen years before the film X-Men. It also features a more rare mutant, his half-brother Sabertooth. Wolverine is played by Hugh Jackman, recently known ( and quite searched over the web, by fans mostly female probably) after his role in Australia. Taking of Australia, this was the main country in which the film was shot, along with New Zealand. The latest is becoming an increasingly popular destination for filming teams, since the Lord of the Ring trilogy. Wolverine has been a favourite amongst comic fans, gamers and movie enthusiasts, ever since the debut of Giant-Size X-Men #1 (May 1975), which is not however the first X-Men mag. The adventurous, rather grumpy hero who possesses animal-keen senses, a unique healing factor which enabled him to add adamantium to his bone structure – hence the trademark claws. Wolverine was ranked was ranked #4 of “The 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters” by Empire Magazine in July 2008.
The $87 million domestic box office for “Wolverine” was lower than the $98.6 million debut of last year’s No. 1 film, “Iron Man,’ and box office trackers had estimated an opening in a range of $85 million to $100 million. However, Chris Aronson, senior vice president of domestic distribution claimed: “I’d been telling people that at anything over $70 million, we were going to be very happy..”. Well, I guess both he and everyone else back at Twentieth Century Fox are happy enough for the weekend any might suffer from a lighter “case-of-the-Mondays” than the rest of us tomorrow.
