Is 'X-Men: First Class' the Best 'X-Men' Movie So Far?

Although the "X-Men" film series, launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000, has continued to be a financial success, the last two entries in the franchise have been gradually slipping.
So if your expectations were low going into "X-Men: First Class," we don't blame you.
The film's poor opening weekend, which took in an unimpressive $56 million, doesn't help its case. That's just over half the revenue that "X-Men: The Last Stand" saw on its opening weekend.
Nevertheless, the first "X-Men" film, which received much better reviews than "The Last Stand," only made $54.5 million its opening weekend, so "First Class" -- itself a reboot of sorts -- could easily pick up a following in the weeks to come.
Though, producers recognize that the departure of former franchise star Hugh Jackman will not be easy to overcome.
