"Planet Of The Apes" Conquers North American Box Office

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. It out-opened the original and managed to earn more both domestically ($208.5 million) and overseas ($502 million) to justify an increase in budget to $170 million - nearly twice what the original cost.

Transformers: The Last Knight is nearly out of the top ten in its fourth week, which is insane.

Despicable Me 3 continued respectable business finishing in third place with $18.9 million (giving the film a three-week total of $188 million).

War's impressive $54 million gross has landed it in the number 10 spot for best opening weekend of 2017 thus far, beating out films like Cars 3 and Alien: Covenant.

The top ten films grossed an estimated $157.2M which was up 4% from a year ago when The Secret Life of Pets stayed at number one with $50.8M; but down 12% from 2015 when Ant-Man debuted in the top spot with $57.2M. That's a 61.4 percent hit from its opening weekend, which is fairly standard for tentpoles that open in the $100+ million range.

"War for the Planet of the Apes" may have the body of an action film, but it has the soul of an art-house drama and the brains of a political thriller. The new Spidey franchise now sits with a grand total of $469.3 million.

Sony's Baby Driver kept cruising along in fourth place, where it earned $8.8 million from 3,043 screens. Overseas, the film continues to pick up the domestic slack. Dawn earned over $208 million domestically during its duration in theaters, and Rise only earned $176 million in its lifetime. Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan headline the acclaimed feature, which was written by Nanjiani and produced by Judd Apatow. The comedy added $71 million to its foreign coffers to bring its total up to $431 million, of which China has contributed $113 million.

Superhero smash Wonder Woman comes in sixth with $6.8 million. There's an obvious difference in tones between War and Homecoming, but as PG-13 genre pictures, there's some crossover in target audiences. Those who did venture out gave the film a dismal "C" rating on CinemaScore. It will end as the second lowest grossing Pixar movie ever with even 1998's A Bug's Life making more.

The House is also almost gone, down 62% to $1.8 million.
