Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Easily Top Box Office


Yes, the Apes reboot sequel crushed the competition this weekend ($73 million).  This is considerably higher than the $54.8 million that Rise of the Planet of the Apes took on it's opening weekend.  All things considered, this is shaping up to be a good summer for Fox as they also distributed The Fault in our Stars ($237 million worldwide) and X-Men: Days of Future Past ($731 million worldwide).

Speaking of X-Men, though, it's short-lived spot as the biggest movie of the year has come to fruition this week as Transformers: Age of Extinction has now made $752.5 million worldwide, despite Aziz Ansari's pleas for people to not watch this movie.
