Surprise, surprise – X-Men’s legion of mutants are no match for Jen and Vince! "The Break-Up" opens to $15.8M on Friday, according to The badly reviewed anti-romantic comedy, starring Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn, handily beats out the $10.2M take by "X-Men: The Last Stand" to take the top spot at the box office.

With $15.8M on Friday, "The Break-Up" could generate $40-45M over weekend; that’s roughly twice what industry analysts have predicted. The film, billed as an "anti-romantic comedy," tells the story of a couple in the final death spiral of a relationship, the inverse of typical Hollywood rom-com fare. The film scored a lowly 33% on the Tomatometer.
