The Wolverine not so fierce in first



Although easily topping the weekend box office with an estimated $55.0 million debut, The Wolverine [WOLV2] underperformed industry expectations. The opening matched that of the 2011 franchise reboot X-Men: First Class, but fell far short of the $85 million earned by the first stand-alone X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  The sequel attracted only the die-hard fans as the audience was 58% males and 58% over the age of 25.

The Conjuring [CNJUR] declined a respectable 47% to $22.1 million and second place.  The original horror film has scared up $83.9 million.

After 4 weekends, Despicable Me 2 [DESM2] banked another $16.0 million to bring its total to $306.4 million.

Turbo [TURB1] finished fourth with $13.3 million, down 37% from its opening.  The racing snail has earned $55.8 million.

Two limited releases expandied into wide release.  The drama Fruitvale Station [FRTVL] tallied $4.7 million to chart tenth overall.  The comedy The Way, Way Back [WAYBK] followed in elevnth at $3.3 million.
