‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ debuts with $87 million opening weekend
It takes more than swine flu and Internet piracy to keep our boy down.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine clawed (sorry) its way to an $87 million opening weekend, despite being widely available online a full month before its release, lukewarm reviews and Vice President Joe Biden to avoid confined and crowded spaces. The movie opening numbers beat the first two X-Men installments (although not the third) and it’s looking like Logan’s run (sorry again) in theaters is going to be pretty strong this summer.
So, does this kill the “Internet piracy is bad for you” meme once and for all? Yeah, I didn’t think so either.
