(CBR) While "22 Jump Street" and "How to Train Your Dragon 2" vied for the top spot at the North American box office, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" continued its strong run with an estimated $9.5 million this weekend -- enough to push it over the $200 million mark to an estimated $205.9 million domestic total.
That puts the film in exclusive company as one of only three movies to pass the $200 million mark domestically in 2014, a club that includes "The Lego Movie" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" -- both of which have made a little more than $256 million during their North American runs.
"Amazing Spider-Man 2," in contrast, would need to make another $2 million to apply for membership, while "Godzilla" would need about $9 million. "X-Men: Days of Future Past" has made an estimated $633.9 million worldwide.
Looking at the rest of the North American box office, "22 Jump Street," the sequel to the 2012 film "21 Jump Street," took the No. 1 spot with an estimated $60 million. Coming in at No. 2 was "How to Train Your Dragon 2," the animated sequel to the 2010 movie of the same name. It made an estimated $50 million in its opening weekend.
The Disney family film "Maleficent" brought in an estimated $19 million, bringing its three-week total to $163.5 million, while the Tom Cruise sci-fi film "Edge of Tomorrow" made an estimated $16 million in its second week, bringing its total to $56.6 million. Last week's No. 1 film, "The Fault in our Stars," dropped hard to the No. 5 spot with an estimated $15.7 million. So far it's made $81.7 million.
