X-Men beat Godzilla for box office top spot

The new X-Men movie has proven to be a bigger monster at the box office than Godzilla, toppling the blockbuster with a $90.7 million Memorial Day weekend take.

The all-star X-Men: Days of Future Past dominated at cinemas across the country and is now on track to make at least $110 million over the four-day weekend - making it the second-largest holiday opening for the franchise.

Meanwhile, Godzilla continues to roar at the box office, taking in a second-weekend $31.43 million over the weekend. The film has now made over $148 million.

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler's latest comedy Blended comes in third with an opening weekend haul of $14.25 million.

Neighbors and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 round out the new top five, according to studio estimates. The official box office results will be released on Monday (26May14).
