I liked it, smaller in scale than most other xmen  movies,  I'm sure that's from being cut down to one movie from 2 at the last minute. Otherwise I enjoyed it and thought it was good, maybe not the best, but very far from being a bad movie

Yes, it was cool. Very brief, but cool to see

Thanks.  From the screenshot I saw, I liked that they kept the blue face paint.

Finally saw it. My expectations were low, but it was still worse than I expected. I can't really blame any of the actors, because the script and direction were really awful.

TOTALLY agree.  I'm at a point where I don't want to expend a lot of energy/time bagging on a film, but wow was the film almost the worst X-film of the longish list.  I'm glad some people liked this; I think Fox should've just let the franchise end with LOGAN, but I get the business side.  This movie might make quarter of a billion dollars (which will likely still be a fairly significant loss when factoring budget + distribution costs + marketing), but it'll die out and be gone from theaters sooner than later: sneaking off into the sunset while the vast majority won't notice.

Later, X-Men: until Marvel's Phase 5 & beyond!

I have a hard time believing  the movie makes that much at the box office
Fun isn’t something one considers when preparing for Comic-Con, but attending does put a smile on my face

Yeah, it'd have to make another $50ish million & I honestly don't know what foreign markets it hasn't played yet.  I'm probably being generous, but the foreign markets can do weird things to the BO

It’s already opened in China and that’s where they got almost all their gross from so far.
