All 12 'X-Men' movies, ranked by how much money they made opening weekend at the US box office - including the disastrous performance of 'Dark Phoenix'
"Dark Phoenix" is officially a box-office bomb with the lowest opening in "X-Men" franchise history ($33 million in the US). It cost $200 million to make, also making it one of the most expensive movies in the series, behind only "X-Men: The Last Stand."
We looked at the box office of every "X-Men" movie - from 2000's "X-Men" to last year's "Deadpool 2" - and the opening for "Dark Phoenix" isn't only the worst in the series, it's the worst by a wide margin, even before adjusting for inflation.
But there's hope for the future. After the Disney-Fox merger, Marvel's mutants are expected to be introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and there's still the successful "Deadpool" series.
Below are all 12 "X-Men" movies, ranked by opening-weekend performance in the US (adjusted for inflation). We also included the domestic and worldwide totals (via Box Office Mojo), along with each movie's production budget (via IMDB Pro).
