“X-Men: Days of Future Past” steamrolled the competition on its way to an estimated $90.7 million three-day Memorial Day weekend haul in North America, and added a huge $171 million from overseas for a whopping $261 million first weekend globally.

Fox’s Marvel Comics-based mutant mashup still has Monday to go, and should wind up with around $107 million domestically over the long holiday weekend. Last week’s No. 1 movie, “Godzilla,” was running a distant second with an estimated $30.5 million. And the weekend’s only other wide opener, the Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore comedy “Blended,” failed to ignite and was battling “Neighbors” for third place with around $14 million for the three days.

Adele named Britain’s richest young musician

Adele … another success story.

She hasn’t released an album since 2011, but Adele remains Britain’s richest musician under the age of 30, according to the Sunday Times’ annual rich list.

It’s been another successful year for the singer, who is estimated to rank wealthier than One Direction and Calvin Harris. The Oscar-winning 26-year-old, who recently dropped a hint that her third album would be released at the end of 2014, is said to be worth £45m, a £15m increase from last year’s takings and over double that of 2012.

Just behind Scottish DJ Calvin Harris, who is currently No 1 in the UK singles chart with the track Summer, are the five members of One Direction. Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson all appear for the second time on the list. This year, the group are reportedly worth an estimated £14m each, almost triple the amount of 2013’s earnings. Collectively that makes One Direction the richest boyband in British music history, with a combined wealth of £70m.

Godzilla-new-poster

“Godzilla” has smashed its way to the top of the box office.

The 3-D monster movie from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures had the second-largest debut of the year this weekend with $93.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

“Godzilla” trails Disney-Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which opened with $95 million in April, and sits just above “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which debuted with $91.6 million this month.

Paying homage to the 60-year-old franchise in tone and spectacle, the latest iteration continues the legend of 1954 Japanese original — Ishiro Honda’s “Gojira.” Reviews of the film were positive — it earned a “fresh” rating from review aggregator RottenTomatoes.com, with 72 percent of film critics responding positively.

‘Neighbors’ beats ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ at weekend box office

Neighbors-Movie

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron have bested the web-slinger at the box office.

Rogen and Efron’s family-versus-fraternity comedy “Neighbors,” was the top draw for moviegoers this weekend, unseating last week’s champ, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”

According to studio estimates Sunday, the R-rated “Neighbors” debuted with $51 million in ticket sales, pushing Spidey to second place with $37 million.

The Cameron Diaz-Leslie Mann comedy “The Other Woman” held onto third place in its third week of release, while “Heaven Is for Real” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” rounded out the top five. Read more

Apple close to buying Beats for $3.2 billion

Apple Inc is close to paying a record $3.2 billion for Beats Electronics, two people with knowledge of the matter said, an expensive foray into music streaming and headphone gear that would mark a departure for the usually cash-conservative iPhone maker.

Both companies are hashing out details and the envisioned deal could still fall through, one person told Reuters on condition of anonymity because the discussions were private.

A second source familiar with the matter told Reuters that Apple was in the market for a subscription-based music service to complement its “iRadio” ad-based offering, launched in 2013 as part of an attempt to jump into a music-streaming arena then split between a handful of startups such as Pandora Inc.

 

‘Divergent’ delivers, Muppets stumble at box office

16x9

Any talk of a curse on young-adult film franchises was put on hold this weekend with the estimated $56-million opening for “Divergent,” the first adaptation from a series of novels by Veronica Roth, while “Muppets Most Wanted” underperformed and “God’s Not Dead” surprised some with a strong turnout from faith-based audiences.

Directed by Neil Burger and starring Shailene Woodley, “Divergent” tells the story of a young woman fighting for freedom and survival in a dystopian society. After a string of young-adult novel adaptations that has included some big hits along with many big misses, there was curiosity as to whether “Divergent” would be the next “Hunger Games” or the next “Mortal Instruments.”

“Divergent” solidly met expectations without exceeding them. By comparison, the first “Hunger Games” film opened at more than $152 million in March 2012, and the sequel, “Catching Fire,” opened in November 2013 to $158 million and went on to be the top film at the box office last year. Read more
