Johnny Depp’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” bombed over the Memorial Day weekend with just $28.1 million through Sunday in North American theaters, while “X-Men: Apocalypse” debuted on top with an estimated $65 million. The anticipated showdown of the two big-budget films turned out to be little contest for 20th Century Fox’s latest “X-Men” installment. Both films were lambasted by critics, and neither drew the audience many expected over the holiday weekend.

 Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” had more than bad reviews to deal with. On Friday, as the film was hitting theaters, Amber Heard, Depp’s wife, was granted a restraining order after alleging the actor previously assaulted her. She appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday with a bruise on her right cheek. Some fans called for a boycott of “Alice Through the Looking Glass.”
The family-friendly video-game adaptation “The Angry Birds Movie” grossed $18.7 million in its second weekend, good enough for third place. “Captain America: Civil War” followed with $15.1 million in its fourth weekend. (It has passed $1.1 billion globally.) And the R-rated comedy “Neighbors: Sorority Rising” came in fifth with $9.1 million in its second week.
