Hugh Jackman returns as Twentieth Century Fox unleashed Marvel's The Wolverine in 3,924 theatres and as expected topped the weekend with a debut of $55 million. Notably, this is the sixth film in X-Men film franchise which has to this point generated a massive worldwide theatrical box office total of $1.9 billion!

Notably, this is the sixth film in X-Men film franchise which has to this point generated a massive worldwide theatrical box office total of $1.9 billion!
As no surprise, second place goes to Warner Bros.' R-rated horror hit The Conjuring which scared up a devilish $41.8 million in its debut last weekend and was the mid-week champ possessing over $60 million as it started the weekend. With great reviews and solid word-of-mouth, this particular horror movie had a much less severe second weekend drop than is typical for the genre at only 47% and therefore was able to scare up another $22.13 million in further profits during the Friday through Sunday period and $83.867 million to date.
