Despite critic reviews, people still flocked to see ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’

Despite idyllic weather enticing the public to boating and barbecues, X-Men: Apocalypse muscled into first place in the weekend’s domestic money count, taking in $80 million over four days at 4,150 theaters.

Director Tim Burton‘s Alice Through the Looking Glass, based on Lewis Carroll’s timeless adventures of whimsy, took in $34.1 million in 3,763 domestic theaters, displacing The Angry Birds Movie, which raked in another $24.6 million in domestic theaters.

Mia Wasikowska reprised her role as Alice in ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass.’

The top five in the United States included two films that have been around: Captain America: Civil War, which was released for the May 6 weekend and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, which took in $11.4 million to Captain America: Civil War‘s $19.7 million.

The top 10 included The Jungle Book ($9.2 million), The Nice Guys ($8.1 million), Money Monster ($5.5 million), Love & Friendship ($3.1 million) and Zootopia, which managed to hang in there with a take of $1.1 million, showing at 572 theaters across the country.

That is some staying power. The Disney release came out March 4, meaning it has held a spot in the top 10 for almost three months. On the worldwide scoreboard, Zootopia was ranked 11th over the weekend with an international take of $4 million over the holiday weekend. That gives the picture a grand total of $991,474,645, as it climbed to 26th on the All-Time Top Grossing Movie list, right between The Dark Knight (at 25th) and The Lion King (at 27th).
