"Rise of the Planet of the Apes" Dominates Box Office with $54 Million

Posted: August 7th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Rise of the Planet of the Apes" Dominates Box Office with $54 MillionSubmit Comment
Thanks to rave reviews, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" took first place at the domestic box office this weekend with $54 million, which is $20 million more than predicted. Overseas, the film also exceeded expectation by grossing another $23.4 million. That's an opening total of $73.4 million for a movie that cost $93 million to make.

"The combination of never-before-seen special effects combined with a powerful, emotional story made for a supremely satisfying experience at the movies," said Fox.

The other wide release of the weekend was the R-rated body-switching comedy "The Change-Up," starring Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman. The film grossed on $13.5 million and landed in fourth place. Unless it performs well overseas, the movie will likely have trouble earning back its $52 million budget.

Meanwhile, "The Smurfs" continues to perform well. The live-action/CG comedy took second place with another $21 million. The $110 million movie has now grossed a total of $129 worldwide in two weeks. "Cowboys and Aliens," however, is struggling. Taking third place and $15.7 million, the sci-fi movie has grossed only $67.4 million on a $163 million budget.

If the film is getting good reviews and is making money then this reboot might turn out to be great.

Damn i havent heard a positive review from the WP users in a while.so the movie must be pretty darn good then.Was thinking of watching it a week later so it wont be overcrowded by kids and rude people at the theater.

And I thank the Wpers for the advice on Green Lantern havent seen it yet.So i'll wait for the download.
