E3 2011: X-Men Destiny for Marvel

School is still in session for Marvel’s X-Men: First Class, but that hasn’t stopped the House of Mouse from expanding the Mutant’s universe further with a new video game title, X-Men: Destiny. Disney will bring the game to the Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo DS this September, allowing fans to pop claws, shoot eye lasers, control weather, or otherwise “get their Mutant on.” Gamers can choose from three characters, then select the skills your character learns.

Pixar's Cars 2 has Disney's Brightest Day

This past weekend saw Cars 2 drive to the top spot at the box office. The CG Disney film was the fifth highest-ever opening weekend for a Pixar movie, behind Toy Story 3, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, and Up – meaning only Toy Story 3 had a more successful opening weekend for a sequel. Pulling in $68 million, Cars 2 even topped the original Cars’ box office, $60 million, a few years ago. Falling, steeply, from first to third was DC Comics comic book super hero film, Green Lantern, as the Emerald Knight couldn’t find steady footing. The X-Men held on, as did Kung Fu Panda, as the animated universe does what it can to impress the world as we know it. Check out the full box office breakdown, and let us know where your tickets went!

Disney’s movie about Marvel’s Mutants took home $56 million in the three day span, an impressive start, though about $30 million shy of the last film in the franchise, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which clawed $85 million. As the world of super heroes across the Marvel universe slowly creep their way into film, largely anticipating a mass crossover with next years Avengers, it’s good to see that the original super team of mutants can hold their own.
