'X-Men' sequel eclipses 'Alice' during US Memorial Day weekend

LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES- Superhero sequel "X-Men: Apocalypse" debuted as the top movie at North American box-offices this Memorial day weekend with ticket sales of $65 million, industry figures showed on Sunday.

"The Angry Birds Movie" was third with $18.7 million.
Another comic book-themed flick, "Captain America: Civil War," was fourth with $15.1 million, according to industry tracker Exhibitor Relations.
"Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising," grossed $9.1 million for fifth place.

-- "The Jungle Book" ($6.9 million)
-- "The Nice Guys" ($6.3 million)
-- "Money Monster" ($4.2 million)
-- "Love and Friendship" ($2.5 million)
-- "Zootopia" ($831,000)
