“X-Men: Apocalypse” is the Second-Worst Reviewed “X-Men” Film to Date

“X-Men: Apocalypse” may be conquering the international box office, but Fox’s latest “X-Men” film isn’t doing as well with critics. On RottenTomatoes, which collects and scores movies based on its number of positive reviews, “Apocalypse’s” 52% tops “X-Men Origins: Wolverine’s” 38% but falls just below “X-Men: The Last Stand’s” 58%.

To date, the X-Men films rank at “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (91%), “X-Men: First Class” (87%), “X2: X-Men United” (86%), “Deadpool” (83%), “X-Men” (81%), “The Wolverine” (70%), “X-Men: The Last Stand” (58%), “X-Men: Apocalypse” (52%) and “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” (38%).

Despite the wide range of critic approval, “X-Men” continues to be a successful franchise at the box office. “Apocalypse” has already opened to a cool $103.3 million overseas. “First Class,” the lowest-earning “X-Men” film, managed to pull in $353m in total, while “Days of Future Past” continues to hold the top spot with an impressive $747m haul overall.

Fox has no plans to drop the franchise, as it has several films in the works, including “New Mutants,” “X-Force,” “Deadpool 2” and “Wolverine 3.” While there has been no official confirmation of a direct sequel to “Apocalypse,” the film’s younger stars — like Tye Sheridan — have signed 3-film deals, and franchise veterans like Jennifer Lawrence have expressed interest in returning for more.

Directed by Bryan Singer and starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn, Oscar Isaac and many, many more, “X-Men: Apocalypse” arrives in theaters May 27, 2016.
