The Wolverine slices into the competition with $55 million

The Wolverine missed pre-box office predictions of $75-85 million. This comic book movie collected $55 million in ticket sales, $22.87 million ahead of last week's winner, The Conjuring.

Are moviegoers beginning to get weary of watching comic book movies? Or were box office predictions of The Wolverine set too high? In any case, The Wolverine finished first in a slow box office weekend.

Can this comic book movie surpass its $170 million production budget? Only time will tell. The Wolverine is close to reaching $170 million worldwide, so this is a good early sign that Wolverine is appealing to movie and comic book fans, alike.

Next weekend, Smurfs 2 will capture business from parents and kids. Expect to see crowded lines and maybe a few small blue creatures lurking around. See you next weekend at the movies.
