        Nice to know THOR did better lol (too all the who thought Thor was going to suck) :) I've seen X Men twice, even paid for my friend because i enjoyed it that much and i was really expecting this to do around 65 or 70 on opening weekend so i'm a little shocked but oh well thats how it goes sometimes.

          If not a huge hit, regardless Super8 will at least be a moderate box-office hit, just due to the fact that JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg are doing, and yeah I agree @dan, people love monster movies, even if the cast isn't that well known this could be a movie that makes them known, no one is born a super star.

                  While I enjoyed First Class, and hope it owns the number two spot next weekend, I want Super 8 to make it both critically and financially, it being my most anticipated summer flick and all. Who knows, it may be a really close tie, and all parties will be happy? Anything's better than The Hangover Part 2 getting more dough than it already stole from American moviegoers, especially considering it put a slight hurt on KFP:2's overall net. Totally undeserving.

                    First Class got 50 because it has no Wolvrine

                      it's still low, people don't have enough excitement for marvel, which is why most Marvel films did not enter the top 50 highest-grossing films of the world!, I hope people would enjoy more on Marvel films and appreciate its awesomeness, but I guess the peeps want something else! X-Men 1st Class was awesome BTW!

                        Upsetting to see First Class not do as well as the previous films considering how good it was. I've seen it twice already and I'm thinking about seeing it a third time, I thought it was fantastic. But as many have said it lacks a lot of star power and with good word of mouth it can bounce back and make some good money. Can't wait to see Super 8 next weekend but it'll be similar to how First Class opened I'm sure, probably a bit less.

                                @jptheredskull Elle Fanning, LOL. She has fame by association, if anything. No, there are 3 things that will drive people out to see Super 8. Those three things are as follows: Abrams, Spielberg, and wanting to see what this monster is. That is all.

                                  @cupid I don't think Super 8 will do very well :P I'm guessing it won't top $40 million, and star power is again a factor in that.

                                        I think Xmen could beat Super8 next weekend, I don't know because all though it's been getting raved reviews from critics, some people are saying it won't appeal to huge box-office numbers like the previous movies that have been coming out lately, but I think it'll still be a box-office success, regardless, It's like a classic Steven Spielberg version of Cloverfield.

                                          @jptheredskull It could, like @moviegeek said people will talk more about it now an that might help or not but if starpower is a factor then super 8 has who?
