After shattering records last weekend, (2011's Memorial Weekend's Box-Office set the record for the biggest Memorial Weekend Box-Office ever, making $275 million overall), "The Hangover Part II," which earned $135 million last weekend alone (making it the biggest 3-day weekend comedy debut ever), has been overtaken by "X-Men: First Class."

Grossing $56 million in its debut weekend, "X-Men: First Class" is now #1, knocking "The Hangover Part II" to #2, which earned another $32.4 million, bringing its national total to $187 million. Though "X-Men: First Class" managed to beat out its competition, it still "under-performed." The film is actually the "lowest opening of a Marvel-branded movie in a long time," particularly after not meeting it's $60 million opening expectation.

Check out the trailer for "X-Men: First Class" starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, January Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Kevin Bacon, and Rose Byrne below:


Check out the rest of the top 10:

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is in fourth place this week after earning another $18 million, making it's grand total just shy of $200 million at $190 million. "Bridemaids" rounded out the top 5 earning $12.1 million. Speaking of the $200 million mark, "Fast Five" reached it at $202 million after it earned another $3.24 million this week, securing it in seventh place.
