LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is projected to be the fifth best Memorial Day holiday weekend debut in box office history over a four-day period, just behind "Fast & Furious 6" and above "The Hangover 2."

The seventh installment in the "X-Men" franchise earned $111 million, according to studio estimates on Monday.

Warner Bros. sci-fi monster smash "Godzilla" landed at No. 2 with $39.4 million from Thursday to Monday.

The Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore-led comedy "Blended" held the third place spot with an $18.1 million debut. It's not a great start for the duo whose previous team-ups included "The Wedding Singer" and "50 First Dates." Both films grossed over $80 million domestically.

"Neighbors" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" rounded out the top five earning $17.2 million and $10 million, respectively.
