NEW YORK - 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.

On Friday, when "Alice" was opening in theaters, Amber Heard, Depp's wife, was granted a restraining order after alleging the actor previously assaulted her.

The poorly reviewed "Alice in Wonderland" sequel had been expected to open around $60 million.

Disney estimated that "Alice" would gross $35.6 million over the four-day weekend. It cost some $170 million to make.

"X-Men" is on track for about $80 million through Monday.
