Weekend Box Office Wrap-up

The Planet of the Apes Prequels May Not Be Over Yet By Germain Lussier on 11 Jul 2017 at 9:00PM “In our minds the story’s not over.”

The Planet of the Apes Prequels May Not Be Over Yet By Germain Lussier on 11 Jul 2017 at 9:00PM “In our minds the story’s not over.”

American film company 20th Century Fox's movie "War for the Planet of the Apes" nabbed the top spot at the North American box office with an estimated 56.5 million US dollars in its opening weekend.

The latest installment of "Spider-Man" has registered a 61% decline in comparison to the last installment, but so has the "Planet of the Apes", whose last installment opened to $72.6 million in 2014.

The strong acclaim for both "War" and "Homecoming" should help the films keep a steady audience at the box office as the summer movie season winds down in the coming weeks. The box office number is 22% more than Day break of the Planet of Apes $4.1 million three years prior.War for the Planet of the Apes is developing Friday to 4,022 sites, with following in the $60 million to $65 million territory for its opening casing. The newest Spidey flick earned over $117 million in its first weekend, but dropped dramatically for week two as War took the reins.

I saw War For The Planet Of The Apes and still prefer Dawn. That raises the domestic total to $140 million. Watching a few of the films in relatively close succession, it became prevalent that the franchise should be admired for its exploratory nature. In terms of actual earnings, the Tom Holland-led movie seems to be following the 2004's Spider-Man 2, which also earned $45.2 million in its second week out. That is a higher drop than most of Marvel's recent films; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 fell 56%, while Doctor Strange fell 50%. Edgar Wright's Baby Driver drove its way to fourth place with $8.8 million, bringing its domestic numbers up to $73 million, making Sony a profit since the film only cost $35 million or so to make.

Despicable Me 3 continued respectable business finishing in third place with $18.9 million (giving the film a three-week total of $188 million). The local total there has climbed to $42.2 million.

Super hero sensation Wonder Woman posted its fifth straight weekend with a decline in the low 30-40% range by slipping only 30% to an estimated $6.9M in its seventh frame. With that rating and a C CinemaScore, that's not likely.

Next weekend sees the arrival of Christopher Nolan's World War II epic Dunkirk, Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and the comedy Girls Trip. With an estimated $56.5M, Matt Reeves' latest knocked Homecoming out of the top spot at the box office, a position it maintained for only one week.
