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

Although falling to second place this week, Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming has crossed $200 million domestically. The film was critically praised and will be profitable, he said. That makes it one of the best reviewed films of the year. War also had an A- CinemaScore that bolsters that likelihood. It's directed by Matt Reeves, who also headed 2014's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes". By comparison, Wrights' previous movies Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, The World's End, Hot Fuzz, and Shaun of the Dead earned, respectively, $47.7 million, $46.1 million, $80.6 million, and $30 million by the end of their entire runs. Spidey continued to perform strong in South Korea, as the film holds the #1 spot for the second consecutive weekend with $11.9 million from 1,500 screens.

That's more than the film's Spider-Man predecessor, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, made outright. This suggests that Homecoming while be on the somewhat lower end of MCU films in terms of box office legs. Overseas figures are GROSS.

Coming in at third for the weekend was Despicable Me 3, earning just under $19 million.

"Despicable Me 3", from Universal Pictures, grossed nearly $19M this weekend, the animated-comedy has now grossed over $187M in three-weeks.

Film Review: War for the Planet of the Apes

Week Two Last Week: No. 2 Friday: $13.6 million Weekend: $45.2 million Total: $208.3 million. Rounding out the top five is the independent film, The Big Sick, which expanded nationwide. It's an impressive performance for the film and will bring in a solid profit for Sony/Tristar. Overseas, the film continues to pick up the domestic slack. Off only 33%, Wonder Woman has earned a spectacular $380 million so far. These impressive reviews could be what War needs to earn the big bucks and topple over Dawn's lifetime global gross of $710 million. Newcomer Wish Upon managed $5.6 million despite relatively poor reviews. Horror is a remarkably critic-proof genre, but a high rating can save a horror film if it results in good legs. It received an A- CinemaScore from audiences. With a $12 million budget, it will likely lose a bit of money.

Costing $150-M to produce before marketing, the 3-quel. That raises the domestic total to $140 million.

Transformers: The Last Knight is nearly out of the top ten in its fourth week, which is insane. Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight fell 56% to an estimated $2.8M for $124.9M to date. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both of their species and the future of the planet.
