You Rate the New Releases: X-Men: First Class

The mutants are back, and as predicted (by me and 88% of you),X-Men: First Class came in at the top of the weekend box office with $56 million, followed not-so-closely behind by The Hangover 2, which dropped to $32 million in its second week of release. Kung Fu Panda 2 ($24 million), Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides ($18 million) and Bridesmaids ($12 million) rounded out the top five. And while we’ll get to rating First Class in a minute, we’d like to send out a special kudos to Bridesmaids for crossing the $100 million mark. Congrats ladies!

So … First Class. The X-Men sequel was extremely successful with critics (86% Fresh at Rotten Tomatoes), and the reaction from fans has seemed just as positive, proving there’s definitely a lot of life left in this franchise.
