'Spider-Man' Might Just Swing In And Save The Summer Box Office
So far, the 2017 summer box office has seen a lot of flops. But "Spider-Man: Homecoming" might help turn things around.LEARN MORE
"Spider-Man" had one of the biggest second-week drops in Marvel history, making way for "War for Planet of the Apes" to take the No. 1 spot.
This week's No. 1 movie proves that human beings just can't get enough of a good ol' man-versus-ape battle.
"War for the Planet of the Apes" took first place at this weekend's box office, pulling in an estimated $56.5 million.
The final installation in the new "Planet of the Apes" trilogy stays true to its roots: It contains several nods to the original 1968 movie that spawned the franchise.
And while it made quite a bit less than 2014's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," it did bring in more than 2011's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes."
Swinging into second place is "Spider-Man: Homecoming."
Last weekend's favorite took a hit in its sophomore weekend, bringing in an estimated $45 million — 61 percent less than last weekend. That's one of Marvel's biggest second-weekend drops ever.
And it must be a great weekend for franchises: Taking the No. 3 spot is "Despicable Me 3." The movie brought in just under $19 million its third week out.
Coming up next week: Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith take a girls trip.
