Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Easily Takes Second Weekend

Newcomers The Purge Anarchy ($28.4 million), Planes: Fire & Rescue ($18 million) and Sex Tape ($15 million) couldn't dethrone Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' second weekend ($36 million).

In fact, all three newcomers underwhelmed just a little bit, as Anarchy's debut was short of the $34.1 million debut of the original, and Fire & Rescue's debut was short of the $22 million debut of it's original… and well, Sex Tape got nowhere near recent R rated comedy flicks, 22 Jump Street ($57.1 million), Neighbors ($49 million), Tammy ($21.6 million) and what it'll be most compared to, Bad Teacher ($31.6 million).

In other news, Transformers: Age of Extinction is all but extinct as it has now climbed to $886 million worldwide getting ever so closer to the $1 billion mark.
