Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - St. Louis

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.

Transformers 4 has now become the highest-grossing movie ever in China with more than $220 million. Worldwide, it will top $600 million this week.

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.
