Wolverine Claws to a Savage $87 Million

Despite worries of a workprint that leaked a month ago and generally weak reviews, 20th Century Fox’s prequel X-Men Origins: Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman, brought in an estimated $87 million its opening weekend in over 4,000 theaters, averaging over $21 thousand per site. It is the third-largest opening for a May/summer kick-off blockbuster, surpassing the opening weekend gross of Bryan Singer’s X2 six years back (at least based on estimates), but falling short of the openings for Spider-Man and last year’s Iron Man.
