The summer begins
The sun is out, and a spin-off franchise is released. It must be summer. X-Men Origins: Wolverine opened worldwide this weekend (in fact you could see the film from Tuesday night at the Odeon!) and in the US it's most likely going to take around $90 million.
Not bad for a film that's been available to download for months, received middling reviews, and was released in the middle of a global flu panic. Movies are, after all, the last refuge for people to escape. Thank goodness.
