"Apes" overthrowing "Spider-Man" at Box Office

"Apes" overthrowing "Spider-Man" at Box Office

The feel good story at the box office over the weekend is the performance by the Amazon Studios/Lionsgate release, "The Big Sick".

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

The franchise depicts the evolution of special effects in microcosm, beginning in 1968 with lots of muffled voices beneath masks (wonderfully retro!) and continuing today with digital motion-capture technology (brilliantly modern!).

Coming in at number two was "Spider-Man: Homecoming". It has little to do with the quality of Apes and more of what else was playing at the same time.

Germany will have talks with Turkey to resolve North Atlantic Treaty Organisation base row: Merkel
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has called on Turkey and Germany to sort out their differences amid a growing diplomatic dispute.

Though much of this connection can be attributed to the actors - and CGI wizards - who give life to these nonhuman characters, kudos is also due to the storytelling skills of director and co-writer Matt Reeves ("Let Me In"), who did such a fine job with the previous "Apes" film.

The Fox/Chemin Entertainment production managed to outdraw "Spider-Man: Homecoming", which fell by more than half from its opening three-day weekend to pull in $45.2 million, website Exhibitor Relations reported. The movie expanded to wide release (2,597 spots) during its fourth weekend in theaters, and should earn US$7.6 million. Not only did the hype die down a bit following the opening weekend rush, Apes' premiere stole some business as well.

The movie was largely panned by critics, with a 20 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, and it also carries a lackluster audience appeal with a C CinemaScore. Though the 61% week-to-week drop is surely deeper than the studio hoped, the $175-million film has already brought in $208.3 million domestically to date. The local total there has climbed to $42.2 million.

South Korea's Kospi was up 0.47 percent in early trade as the benchmark index closed in on the 2,430 level. The dollar index, which measures the dollar against a basket of currencies, traded at 95.096 at 7:55 a.m.

TOTAL (DOMESTIC GROSS APPROX.) - 3.06 Cr.

The plus side for War is that unlike those films, this one is a critical darling. It's starting at a basic goal of the mid year season, which has seen a larger number of misses than hits so far with flops pulling the late spring film industry down 7.8% starting at July 12 to $2.37 billion.

Superhero smash Wonder Woman comes in sixth with $6.8 million. The DC Extended Universe entry has made $380.6 million so far Stateside, ranking as the third highest-grossing movie of the year so far. The UK ($9.5 million), Russian Federation ($5.0 million), and Spain ($3.4 million) lead the charge, and the film has yet to open in eight of the top markets (China, South Korea, Japan, France, Germany, Australia, Brazil, and Mexico). The film, which cost about $150 million to produce, added $46 million from overseas. That raises the domestic total to $140 million. The sequel is now up to $124.8 million Stateside. Rounding out the top ten was the comedy flop The House with an estimated $1.8M, down 62%, and $23.1M overall for Warner Bros.
