The latest 'X-Men' movie took over the record made by 2006's 'X-Men: The Last Stand' by passing the $500 million mark worldwide.

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" has officially become the highest-grossing movie in the "X-Men" franchise. The Bryan Singer-directed film has surpassed the $459.4 million grossed by 2006's "X-Men: The Last Stand".

In the second weekend, "Days of Future Past" managed to add $128.2 million; $32.6 million of which came from domestic markets. Statistically, it earned a total of $500.2 million through Sunday, June 1 with $162.1 million of those coming from domestic markets.

Not tallying in inflation, "Days of Future Past" officially becomes the top-grossing title in the 20th Century Fox and Marvel superhero franchise. Made on a $200 million-plus budget, it is the first "X-Men" movie to gross more than $500 million at the worldwide box office.

"This is a franchise that started back in 2000, which predated the first 'Spider-Man' movie by two years so 'X-Men' started the renaissance in the world of big superhero movies," Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak, said when the movie took the first place at domestic weekend box office last week.

"The Wolverine" took in $416.5 million worldwide in 2013 while "X-Men: First Class" earned $353.6 million globally in 2011.
