Weekend Movies: Can “X-Men” hit $100, is Sandman “done”?

ImageReviews for “X-Men: Days of Future Past” have been excellent. Yes, mine, too. It’s on nearly 3,000 screens. It’s in 3D. So there’s no reason it shouldn’t hit $100 million over a long holiday weekend, right?

Box Office Guru thinks it has a shot to hit $110 by Monday night.

Box Office Mojo predicts $98 million by midnight Sunday, $119 by Monday.

“Blended” is earning scathing reviews for the too-bored-to-care Adam Sandler. Hated it. Truly. A whopping 15% positive reviews on the tomatometer, which only proves that 15% of the people published there are special needs.

Mojo figures “Blended” will manage $30 million or so by Monday night, $23 million Sunday night.

Guru thinks $26 million, all-in Monday night.

A fall-off for the Sandman? Maybe. Warners will probably break-into the Sandler business in the black. Not guaranteed.
