Who Is Winning The Battle For The Summer Movie Box Office?

X-Men: Days of Future Past finally opened in theaters this weekend to the delight of fans and critics and as one of the the flagship films coming out this summer, it is expected to make big money. But who is winning the summer movie box office race so far?

Though it is technically not summer yet, the summer movie season is already well underway and has already had some staggering defeats and big surprises. X-Men has already made nearly $40 million on its opening day and is expected to go over $100 million this weekend. Perhaps most notably though was last weekends re-boot of Godzilla opening with some bigger than expected numbers.

Godzilla is arguably this years biggest winner so far, grossing $93 million its opening weekend and more than $100 million internationally. The film has already had its sequel green lit and director Gareth Edwards has been chosen to helm the first Star Wars spin-off as a result. For legendary pictures, and Edwards, the film has been a huge success both critically and financially.

Prior to Godzilla‘s Monster opening weekend, Marvel studios latest effort, Captain America: The Winter Solider got a jump on the competition with an April release and has since put up massive numbers. According to Box Office Mojo, the film has since went on to gross more than $700 million at the global box office, marking another success for the hottest studio in Hollywood. Marvel will get another shot later this summer with their more risky James Gunn directed project, Guardians of the Galaxy.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has also been very successful for Sony, though the critical response was much more mixed than it was with some of the other films that have raked in the cash so far this summer. In spite of the mixed feelings, Marc Webb’s sequel featuring the famous web-slinger has raked in more than $600 million at the global box office.

Not all of the films released so far have been all that successful though. A couple of notable bombs have already occurred. Darren Aronofsky’s Noah somewhat underperformed and only managed to bring in a little over $100 million domestically on $125 million production budget. However, the biggest flop may be the Johnny Depp thriller Transcendence.

Transcendence was expected to be a big hit and had fans very excited prior to its release, but the film was received very poorly by critics, scoring a very low 19 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Currently, the film hasn’t even made back it’s $100 million production budget, and with marketing costs factored in the studio will be taking a big loss on the project.

With some big successes already in the books the summer 2014 movie season is shaping up to be an interesting one already with many more big films hitting theaters in the coming months such as Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West, the Tom Cruise headlined Sci-Fi epic Edge of Tomorrow, 22 Jump Street and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to name a few.
