Another summer blockbuster tops the box office

"X-Men: First Class" opened at No. 1, though The Associated Press notes that the prequel did not take in as much money as the earlier releases in the franchise (when adjusted for inflation). Still, nearly earning $24 million more than your biggest competitor for the weekend is not too shabby.

From The Associated Press:
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Final figures will be released today.
