(Newser) The Wolverine, the latest cinematic installment in the sprawling X-Men franchise, sliced and diced its way to the top of the box office this weekend, opening with $55 million, the AP reports. That's actually $10 million less than it was expected to make, notes the Hollywood Reporter, though it had a better run internationally, where it earned about $86.1 million—together, enough to cover the $120 million it cost to make. In second place, low-budget horror flick The Conjuring brought in another $22.1 million, followed by Despicable Me 2 ($16 million), Turbo ($13.3 million), and Grown Ups 2 ($11.5 million).
