“X-Men: Days of Future Past” has become the fifth best Memorial Day holiday weekend debut in box office history over a four-day period.

The Fox action-adventure comes in just behind “Fast & Furious 6,” which earned $117 million over the holiday last year and above 2011’s $103.4 million-grossing “The Hangover 2.”

The seventh “X-Men” film made $111 million in domestic sales, according to Tuesday’s final box office figures. The film exceeded expectations for the studio that had hoped for $100 million in four days.

Internationally, the film raked in $193.7 million, which brings its worldwide box office total to an impressive $305 million.

After debuting at No. 1 last weekend with $93.2 million, Warner Bros.‘ “Godzilla” dropped to No. 2, earning $38 million.

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore’s comedy “Blended” opened in third place with an underwhelming $18 million.
