‘X-Men’ takes top spot as ‘Alice’ flops at Memorial Day box office
NEW YORK -- The X-Men had fairly ordinary powers at the box office and "Alice Through the Looking Glass" fell down a box office rabbit hole this Memorial Day weekend. "X-Men: Apocalypse" took the top spot with an estimated $80 million at North American box office over the four day weekend. The 20th Century Fox comic book film, which stars Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy as the mutant heroes, had an opening in line with industry expectations and put it in the middle of the pack of the very successful X-Men franchise.
