The movie starring Woody Harrelson ended up about the same as 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes which kicked off the modern trilogy with $54.8 million during its opening weekend.

The movie earned $5 million in Thursday night previews alone, and then pulled in $22 million from 4,022 theaters on Friday.

This weekend, 20th Century Fox's War For The Planet Of The Apes went toe-to-toe with Marvel/Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming, and - somewhat surprisingly - the Apes emerged victorious. The movie fell 61.4 percent to $45.2 million, bringing it to a domestic total of $208.3 million but representing a larger drop than similar recent films like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (56 percent) and Wonder Woman (43 percent). Broad Green averaged a weak $2,483 from 2,250 locations from just the U.S.as Canada did not open this weekend. Sony's Baby Driver eased only 33% in its third lap for an estimated $8.8M pushing the cume to $73.2M. This brings the movie's domestic total to $188 million - which is much lower than predecessors Despicable Me 2 ($276 million) and Minions ($262.4 million) at this point in the movie's box office run.

Keep reading to see how the top films stack up at the box office this week. Internationally, War for the Planet of the Apes has earned $46 million, bringing the movie's current worldwide earnings to $102.5 million. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. Watching a few of the films in relatively close succession, it became prevalent that the franchise should be admired for its exploratory nature. 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 mischievous Minions hope that Gru will return to a life of crime after the new boss of the Anti-Villain League fires him. The film stars the voices of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig and Trey Parker.
