Dawn of the Planet of the Apes comes to movies theaters across the world this weekend with great great reviews. Neighbors makes its way to Keller 9 and Non-Stop is now available at Redbox.
Recapping Last Weekend
Transformers: Age of Extinction took the box office over the holiday weekend by a wide margin. Its receipts dropped 63%, which still came out to just over $37 million. Tammy came in second in its first weekend out. The Melissa McCarthy project topped $21.5 million. 22 Jump Street finished third in its fourth weekend with $9.8 million. The Jump Street barely topped Deliver Us From Evil‘s $9.7 million opening. How To Train Your Dragon 2 rounded out the top five with just shy of $9 million.
Opening This Weekend
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Caesar and the rest of the evolved apes last appeared in theaters in 2011, where Rise of the Planet of the Apes grossed $177 million domestically. Rise opened just shy of $55 million in ’11. Andy Serkis, who plays Caesar, gave a Q & A to The Hollywood Reporter about how the cast prepared for the film. Many media outlets, including the New York Daily News, say that Matt Reeves and Mark Bomback may have made a sequel better than the original. MTV took a look behind the scenes at the set design for this new film. Predictions call for this one to bring in close to $70 million. Read the review on Deadspin‘s The Concourse. You’ll want to see this one in theaters.
See it tonight at 10 pm at MX Movies.
