We’re at the halfway point of 2014, and the year has a new worldwide box office champion—for now. Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has eclipsed Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the worldwide box office to become the highest grossing film of the year thus far with $712.7 million. That solidifies the film as the highest grossing X-Men movie yet, demolishing the previous record of $459.4 million held by X-Men: The Last Stand. Its worldwide total just barely surpasses that of the Captain America sequel, which closed out with $711.2 million. Stateside, the Marvel pic is still tops with $257.2 million, followed by The LEGO Movie at #2 with $256.8 million and then X-Men at #3 with $223.4 million.
Hit the jump to get a look at the current worldwide Top 10 and for my prediction as to which film will end up the victor when 2014 comes to a close.
