War for the Planet of the Apes Hit Theaters in the US

 The “War for the Planet of the Apes” hit theatres in the US on Thursday, and the movie is now on its way to be a huge success at box office. According to reports, “the Planet of the Apes” is on its way to a $57 million opening weekend.

The movie earned $5 million in Thursday night previews alone, and then pulled in $22 million from 4,022 theaters on Friday. The movie is now set to walk away with a win over “Spiderman” this weekend to the tune of $57 million, according to the website Variety.

That number would put it on par with 2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes’” $54.8 million debut, but noticeably behind 2014’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’” $72.6 million domestic launch.

While the victors usually get to write history, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is still worth writing home about. The Sony-Marvel superhero pic is looking at a second outing just shy of $50 million. After taking in about $13 million on Friday, Tom Holland’s stab at spidey is on track for $48 million from 4,348 locations by end of day Sunday — bringing “Spider-Man’s” domestic cume to $211 million in two weeks’ time.

“Despicable Me 3” managed to maintain a spot in the top 3 this week thanks to a $6 million heist from 4,155 marks on Friday. The Universal-Illumination animated threequel will end the weekend with another $19 million, should everything go according to plan. Also in its third frame, “Baby Driver” from Working Title, Big Talk, TriStar, and Sony is on track for fourth place. An additional $2.5 million from 3,043 locales on Friday will give Ansel Elgort an $8 million weekend — bringing its total to $73 million.

“Wonder Woman,” new horror entry “Wish Upon” (expecting just $5.5 million this weekend), “Cars 3,” “Transformers: The Last Knight,” and “The House” round out the top 10.
