Following its massive opening weekend, “Logan” is set to rack up a cumulative domestic box office gross of over $100 million. According to Deadline, the film’s North American debut took $88.3 million over its opening weekend, and a further $7.15 million in ticket sales on Monday gives the R-rated superhero flick a cumulative domestic box office total of $95.55 million so far.
Various cinemas across North America offer promotional discounts on Tuesdays, and these are expected to drive the movie into the $100-million leagues.
Deadline also notes that "Logan" has charmed both critics and fans alike, scoring a 92% fresh-rating on Rotten Tomatoes — an achievement no other X-Men movie has been able to match, with "X-Men: Days of Future Past" (91% fresh) and "Deadpool" (84% fresh) as its closest critical rivals.
"Logan," which marks Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart's departure from the "X-Men" franchise, is set in the near future, years after the epilogue of 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” In it, a weary Logan, whose healing factor is failing, cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant pursued by dark forces arrives.
Now in theaters nationwide, “Logan” stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Dafne Keen and Stephen Merchant.
