X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Becomes Highest Grossing Film of 2014 Worldwide—For Now

     June 30, 2014


We’re at the halfway point of 2014, and the year has a new worldwide box office champion—for now.  Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has eclipsed Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the worldwide box office to become the highest grossing film of the year thus far with $712.7 million.  That solidifies the film as the highest grossing X-Men movie yet, demolishing the previous record of $459.4 million held by X-Men: The Last Stand.  Its worldwide total just barely surpasses that of the Captain America sequel, which closed out with $711.2 million.  Stateside, the Marvel pic is still tops with $257.2 million, followed by The LEGO Movie at #2 with $256.8 million and then X-Men at #3 with $223.4 million.

Hit the jump to get a look at the current worldwide Top 10 and for my prediction as to which film will end up the victor when 2014 comes to a close.

x-men-days-of-future-past-jennifer-lawrenceThough X-Men’s box office is indeed impressive, Transformers: Age of Extinction will no doubt surpass the pic rather quickly based on its massive $100 million opening weekend.  In its first weekend of release, the film has already grossed $300 million worldwide, and I’m thinking it will end up on the top of the global box office by year’s end.  Its main challenger for that title is likely The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1, as Catching Fire took in $864.6 million at the global box office—an impressive feat considering the film wasn’t released in 3D.  Could Age of Extinction or Mockingjay join the $1 billion club?  Sound off with your own box office predictions in the comments section.

At the six-month mark, here’s how the worldwide box office stacks up:

1. X-Men: Days of Future Past – $712.7 million
2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – $711.2 million
3. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – $703.7 million
4. Maleficent – $585.6 million
5. Godzilla – $488.1 million
6. Rio 2 – $470.2 million
7. The LEGO Movie - $467.2 million
8. Noah - $359.2 million
9. 300: Rise of an Empire – $331.1 million
10. Edge of Tomorrow – $318.7 million
