Mutants are taking the box office reign with "X-Men: First Class" claiming the first spot. The latest installment of "X-Men" film franchise grosses $55.1 million from 3,641 theaters. However, it seems not to be a really great start, considering the spent budget was $160 million. The movie also falls short from its predecessors, for example "X-Men: The Last Stand" which debuted $105.8 million in 2006.

Trailing behind the fifth "X-Men" film is "The Hangover Part II", which drops 63.5% from last week's cume. The raunchy comedy, which revolves around Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha), obtains $31.4 million and lands on the second place.

Meanwhile, "Kung Fu Panda 2" also slides to number three. Falling 49.9%, the animated comedy film takes in $23.9 million, bringing its domestic total to $100 million.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and "Bridesmaids" are racing to number four and five respectively. The adventure film, in which Johnny Depp stars as Captain Jack Sparrow, collects $17.9 million. In the meantime, the comedy film grosses $12 million.
