“X-Men: Days of Future Past” is projected to be the fifth best Memorial Day holiday weekend debut in box office history over a four-day period, just behind “Fast & Furious 6″ and above “The Hangover 2.”

The seventh instalment in the “X-Men” franchise earned USD 111 million, according to studio estimates today.

Warner Bros. sci-fi monster smash “Godzilla” landed at No. 2 with USD 39.4 million from Thursday to Monday. The Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore-led comedy “Blended” held the third place spot with an USD 18.2 million debut. It’s not a great start for the duo whose previous team-ups included

“The Wedding Singer” and “50 First Dates.” Both films grossed over USD 80 million domestically.

“Neighbors” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ rounded out the top five earning USD 17.2 million and USD 10 million, respectively.
