It certainly is a Happy Memorial Day for everyone at Fox this morning as "X-Men: Days of Future Past" rules the box office with a $90.7 million dollar three day take and $109 million when you figure in Monday.  That's above most people's predictions with International grosses yet to come, which should also be huge.  The film dropped 18% from Friday to Saturday which wasn't unexpected, especially if a film enjoys a robust Thursday, as "X-Men" did.

Elsewhere, despite an A- Cinemascore, "Blended" proved you can't go home as Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore reunited for a third time with bland results.The $14.2 million three day was below most predictions and barely beat out "Neighbors".  Also, "Chef" expanded to 500 theatres and cracked the Top 10 with a per-screen-average of $4,500.  "Belle" edged up to 450 theatres and took in $1.7 million, finishing just outside the Top 10..  Overall, the rainy weekend, which looked like it was going to push grosses higher didn't really materialize and therefore had very little effect on grosses.  Here's the full list, along with 4 day estimates.

1.   X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST---FOX---$90.7 M (3), $108 M (4)
