The third and final film in the Planets of the Apes prequel trilogy is estimated to open with a $56.5 million weekend box office. That debut is more in line with 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes ($54.8 million) than direct predecessor Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ($72.6 million).
Audiences showed up for battle as the summer's latest threequel, War for the Planet of the Apes, opened at number one at the North American box office.

Many have seen this as a positive sign that Matt Reeves is certainly more than capable of bringing the next Batman film to the big screen. The Universal-Illumination animated threequel will end the weekend with another $19 million, should everything go according to plan.
