'War for the Planet of the Apes' sets new movie standard

“Apes” overthrowing “Spider-Man” at Box Office Box Office: Day wise India collection break up of War For The Planet Of The Apes

That was a million more on Thursday than the last film in the series did, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes went on to earn $72.6 million over opening weekend.

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.

Meanwhile, Ryan Phillippe and Joey King's new film Wish Upon debuted to $5.5 million. "Baby Driver" was directed by Edgar Wright, and the film stars Ansel Elgort, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, and Lily James.

"War for the Planet of the Apes" is the third installment in Fox's reboot of "Planet of the Apes".

The film, co-written by Nanjiani and the real-life Emily, his wife, rates a resounding 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and is credited by the New York Times with no less than "revitalizing an often moribund subgenre with a true story of love, death and.everyday comedy". Worldwide, the movie has brought in $102 million and has taken the throne, this weekend, which was previously held by "Spider-Man: Homecoming'". It's not, however, the one to achieve the highest-opening weekend, but the others can't say they beat Spider-Man!

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.

The animated feature earned $6.2 million on Friday and is expected to earn $18.9 million over the weekend from 4,155 locations. Falling a light 33% in attendance, the movie finished in fourth place with another $8.7 million, which drove its domestic total up to $73.1 million.

The film has done much better overseas than at home, according to Hollywood Reporter, which says its global gross of $519.4 million includes a whopping $113.6 million from viewers in China. Dunkirk is forecasted to open around $40 million, which would be enough to capture the top spot at the box office but not enough to reverse the box office malaise that should continue to get worse as we get closer to August. The Big Sick improved on its third-week total of $5.2 million by bringing in $7.6 million this weekend and climbing all the way to the fifth spot in this week's top ten. The film was made for about $175 million.
