We’re going to skip the puns (like “claw,” “slice” and “slash”) and get to the point: Wolverine won the weekend box office.
It wasn’t great, with $55 million domestically (for comparison, X-Men Origins: Wolverine opened to the tune of $85.1 million four years ago), but Hugh Jackman‘s latest superhero flick made enough to beat The Conjuring and Despicable Me 2, which finished the weekend with $22.1 million and $16 million, respectively.

The animated snail tail Turbo and Adam Sandler‘s Grown Ups sequel round out the top five.
Wolverine follows dear Logan (Jackman) in the Yukon, where he’s been living as a “normal” person. When an old friend from Japan asks the title hero for some help, the latter emerges as more powerful than ever.
On deck for August: Elysium, We’re the Millers, Kick-Ass 2, Jobs , The World’s End and the movie we’ve all been waiting far too long for, One Direction: This Is Us.
