The Fox film’s North American debut racked up $88.3 million, an increase from Sunday’s estimated $85.3 million; worldwide, its weekend tally climbed from an estimated $237.8 million to a whopping $240.8 million.

“Logan” now claims the biggest domestic opening of 2017, blowing past “The LEGO Batman Movie’s” $53 million. It also crawls past “The Hangover Part II” ($85.9 million) to become the fourth-largest R-rated debut of all time, behind “Deadpool” ($132.4 million), “The Matrix Reloaded” ($91.7 million) and “American Sniper” ($89.3 million).

Director James Mangold film debuted at No. 1 in North America and in 80 international markets, led by China with $46.2 million. The United Kingdom trailed with $11.4 million, followed by South Korea ($8.2 million), Brazil ($8.17 million) and Russia ($7.1 million). However, overseas numbers could inch higher once final grosses are counted later today.

The farewell of Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart to the X-Men franchise, “Logan” 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 arrives, pursued by dark forces.

In theaters nationwide, “Logan” stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Dafne Keen and Stephen Merchant.
