War for the Planet of the Apes Draws Decent $56M Opening

“Apes” overthrowing “Spider-Man” at Box Office

Box Office: Day wise India collection break up of War For The Planet Of The Apes

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.

Wish Upon, the weekend's other new premiere, can be found at the seventh spot with a small $5.5 million. 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.

"War for the Planet of the Apes" is the third installment in Fox's reboot of "Planet of the Apes". Rottentomatoes.com, which distills critics' reviews into a single score, gave the film a 94 percent positive rating.

Spider-Man: Homecoming fell more than the Summer's 2 other superhero pics, Wonder Woman (43%), and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (56%). The stylish heist movie earned $2.5 million on Friday from 3,043 locations and is tracking for an $8.75 million weekend, which will bring its box office total to $73.1 million.

But let's put things in perspective here: "Homecoming" boasts the second-best domestic debut in the "Spider-Man" saga and Sony's second-best debut, period.

In third is Despicable Me 3, which grossed $18.9 million. Overseas grosses have always been strong for this series and with a $46 million start it's not in bad shape there; the total worldwide gross is $102.5 million. Even if Homecoming continues to be a fast burn, it should be able to provide the Spider-Man franchise with its first $300 million hit in a decade as well as the first $300 million hit for Sony in five years.

2017 has been another odd year for returning franchises at the United States box office.

And, finally: shout-out to Edgar Wright's Baby Driver and Michael Showalter's The Big Sick, both of which are still doing very well at the box office. To date, it has only made $187.9 million.
