The Wolverine Slices Into The US Box Office
Logan's run starts around the world

The Wolverine

He may not be cutting through the cash in quite as sharp a fashion as Fox might like, but the return of the troubled, heroic Logan to our screens has proved there’s life in the old dog yet. The Wolverine has nabbed $55 million at the US box office, according to studio estimates.

It’s a little lower than everyone involved might have anticipated, but is bolstered by the fact that the film has also scored around $86 million from elsewhere in the world, for a running start of $141 million. The Conjuring was forced into second place, but the successful horror film still made $22.1 million, which means it took more in its second week alone than it cost to make. With a running US total of $83.8 million, we can surely expect yet more stories from the files of supernatural investigators the Warrens.

Despicable Me 2 also held well, earning $16 million in third, while Turbo slipped one place to fourth with $13.3 million. Grown Ups 2 rounded out the top five with $11.5 million.

Red 2 was sixth with $9.4 million, ahead of Pacific Rim in seventh, which made $7.5 million. The Heat held at eighth with $6.8 million and R.I.P.D. was ninth, taking home $5.8 million. Acclaimed indie drama Fruitvale Station expanded its release and jumped into the top 10, earning $4.6 million along the way.

Where's my sandwich ??
I agree with BenTramer's comment, Jackman is looking a little OTT with the lack of body fat, for a man of 45 he is in amazing shape, but what is he gonna do on Wolverines next outing, go all Trevor Reznik on us and drop down to about 5st. ?? I am looking forward to this, as a fan of the previous films, even the overtly flawed Xmen Origins Wolverine movie, but wished they didnt keep pushing Wolverine to the front of all of these movies. First Class was a great film, with Jackman only putting in More
