The latest in the Planet of the Apes franchise has brought in an estimated $56.5 million in its first weekend of release, while also playing well with fans (an A- on CinemaScore). However, it is still a disappointment when compared to the rest of the franchise thus far, falling 22 percent from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' $72.6 million despite holding positive reviews.
Both films have managed to score well with critics and audiences, but, clearly, there is an evident sequel fatigue.More news: Cabrera Bello: I played round of my life to win Scottish Open
Edgar Wright's "Baby Driver" starring Ansel Elgort and Jon Bernthal brought in $8 million on its third weekend.
After scoring big last weekend, Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming cooled its heels by 61% in its second round on 4,348 screens. By Sunday evening, its 10th night, it is predicted to deal $208.3 million in domestic sales. Reviews for the Matt Reeves sci-fi drama were the best of the new trilogy.More news: Heavy rain triggers flood in Kalahandi
Coming in at third for the weekend was Despicable Me 3, earning just under $19 million. Monday, it will pass up the final Harry Potter film ($381-M) to become the #3 Warner's release of all time behind The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, not accounting for inflation. 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. The latest from Illumination raised its Stateside total to $187.9 million. The original had a budget of $93 million, and had it not earned $300 million plus overseas, there would never have been another film. Overseas, the $34 million production has earned $23 million to date.

After six weeks, we bid adieu to Wonder Woman as the Patty Jenkins blockbuster moved down to sixth place, earning $6.9 million from 2,744 theaters in its seventh weekend. The box office news on Thursday felt very good - War earned a strong $5 million from previews, potentially setting the table for a big weekend. Those who did venture out gave the film a dismal "C" rating on CinemaScore. The first Spider-Man movie made as a collaboration between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios will earn about $45.2 million over the weekend after earning $13.6 million on Friday from 4,348 locations.
