Logan was king of the box office this weekend.

The R rated X-Men spinoff, which comes from director James Mangold, enjoyed a domestic launch totalling $85.3-Million. Combined with the $152.5-Million brought in from overseas, that brings the highly anticipated superhero flick's global gross to a very impressive $237.8-Million.

The film follows an aging Wolverine and Professor Charles Xavier as they navigate a near-future in which mutants are on the verge of being wiped out.

Logan finished first in 80 if the 81 markets where it screened this weekend. It brought in $46.3-Million in China, $11.4-Million over in the United Kingdom, $8.2-Million in South Korea and Brazil, and $7.1-Million in Russia.
