X-Men: The Last Stand, Superman Returns, Blade: The Series -- and much more!!!


X-Men: The Last Stand is projected to take in the $107 million range for its first three days, according to

After an estimated $45.5 million on Friday and $32.1 millon on Saturday, X-Men won't break Spider-Man's three-day opening record, but could be second all time.

Official numbers will be released on Tuesday.

Associate producer David Gorder told The Continuum he had an inkling of the film's boffo box office during the Cannes Film Festival.

"Cannes was a resounding success with the premiere of X-Men: The Last Stand at the Palais last Monday," Gorder said. "The French and the world media enthusiastically embraced the movie. The Pyro/Iceman fight sequence and Magneto's Golden Gate Bridge VFX sequence drew applause and cheers from the audience. It was very special to be a part of the screening.

"I mentioned to Avi Arad outside the Carlton that I felt the movie could do Spider-Man 2 numbers, due to news of tracking numbers and awareness. With news of the Friday record box-office I was thrilled especially for Brett (Ratner, director), all of the producers on the film as well as for 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios.

"It's a wonderful feeling to know the fans have embraced the final movie of the trilogy. I am so very proud to have been a part of all three X-Men movies."

Animation and comic-book artist Alex Toth died Saturday at his drawing board, his son said. He was 78.

Eric Toth posted the following on the Alex Toth forum page:

"I am Alex's oldest son Eric. I meant to be the one to let everyone know that my father did pass away this morning drawing/writing at his table. I do not have any further details other than I will forward an address for those interested in sending cards. We will arrange something appropriate at or around the convention this summer in San Diego. ...All of your cards and letters of the recent past were very much appreciated by my father. Only in these last years did he begin to understand and accept the fact that his work had touched so many people's lives. In time, more information will follow."

Toth is perhaps best known for his animation work at Hanna-Barbera, which included Space Ghost, Jonny Quest, Superfriends, Fantastic Four and Herculoids.
