X-Men: Days Of Future Past is winning right now.

The movie hit theaters this weekend and quickly shot to the top of the box office charts, pulling in $90.7 million. According to ET Online, this is a major jump for the X-Men franchise. The first film, X-Men, opened in 2000 bringing in $54.4 million. X2 hit theaters three years later, earning $85.5 million. The third installment in the series, X-Men: The Last Stand, raked in a cool $102.7 million, making it the film with the highest grossing opening-to-date.

Despite the decline, X-Men: Days Of Future Past did much better than the other summer films that hit theaters this weekend. Check out ET to see how much Captain America: The Winter SoldierThe Amazing Spider-Man 2, Godzilla and Blended made.

Speaking of movie news, Seth Rogen recently fired back at a Washington Post critic’s theory that “outsized frat-boy fantasies” such as Neighbors influenced UCSB shooting suspect Elliot Rodger.

“How many students watch outsized frat-boy fantasies like Neighbors and feel, as Rodger did, unjustly shut out of college life that should be full of ‘sex and fun and pleasure’? How many men, raised on a steady diet of Judd Apatow comedies in which the shlubby arrested adolescent always gets the girl, find that those happy endings constantly elude them and conclude, ‘It’s not fair’?”

“Movies may not reflect reality, but they powerfully condition what we desire, expect and feel we deserve from it,” wrote Ann Hornaday.

The actor took to Twitter to fire back at Hornaday’s comments:

Seth wasn’t the only one offended by her comments. Director Judd Apatow quickly fired back as well:

Girls - UK premiere

This weekend, the world obsessively checked Twitter and Instagram for photos and information about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding. Everyone who’s anyone was in attendance – everyone, that is, but Lena Dunham.

The hilarious GIRLS actress and director took to Twitter to jokingly express her sorrow about missing the KimYe nuptials.

She later made it very clear she was only joking for anyone who didn’t get her snarky brand of humor:

Denzel Washington is back with a brand new film and trust us, you’re going to want to see this one.

Washington is starring in The Equalizer, a remake of a popular old TV show about an ex-commando who fell off the map to enjoy some peace and quiet. Somehow he finds himself drawn to a young girl in need of guidance and protection and winds up facing off with a group of intense Russian gangsters.

Watch as Denzel levels the playing field despite a serious case of OCD in the trailer above.
