Weekend Box Office: Apes Squash Spider at the Box Office

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

The latest "Apes" movie came in more than 20 percent behind the last installment, "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes", which was also directed by Matt Reeves and debuted to 72.6 million USA dollars in 2014.

Both films have managed to score well with critics and audiences, but, clearly, there is an evident sequel fatigue.

"Wish Upon", starring Joey King and Ryan Phillippe, follows a teenage girl who discovers a box with magical powers. 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. All of a sudden, there was a 20% deficit for War compared to Rise, and the opening day for the third film was only $2.5 million bigger than the original.

Made for about $150 million before marketing, War for the Planet of the Apes stars Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Amiah Miller, Karin Konoval, Judy Greer and Terry Notary. It likewise conveys solid basic help, with a 92% crisp rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and is relied upon to twist up its second end of the week with about $50 million.

Meanwhile, the Spider-Man reboot finished in second place, dropping more than 60% to earn $45.2 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.

"Despicable Me 3" was on track to add $18.9 million to its total this weekend, and will have a three-week running total of $188 million by Sunday evening.

In Spider-Man: Homecoming, thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May.

After a successful limited run over the past three weeks, Lionsgate/Amazon's romantic comedy The Big Sick went wide this weekend where it earned a decent $7.7 million from 2,597 theaters.

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. Despite the #1 finish, it will be hard for Fox to get out of the red with box office tickets alone.
