War for the Planet of the Apes box office collection are…

Though all three movies have been praised for its strong storytelling and incredible motion-capture technology.

Swinging into second place is "Spider-Man: Homecoming".

Nevertheless, Apes is on its way to become a success for Fox. War for the Planet of the Apes cost $60 million more to make, too. Reviews for the Matt Reeves sci-fi drama were the best of the new trilogy. Running on its fourth weekend, "The Big Sick" has earned $16 million worldwide.

In theaters now, director Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland as Spider-Man and Michael Keaton as Vulture, in addition to Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. That's a 61.4 percent hit from its opening weekend, which is fairly standard for tentpoles that open in the $100+ million range. By Sunday evening, its 10th night, it is predicted to deal $208.3 million in domestic sales.




Universal's family sequel "Despicable Me 3" pulled in $18.9 million in its third week, bringing its cumulative total to $188 million domestically. The comedy added $71 million to its foreign coffers to bring its total up to $431 million, of which China has contributed $113 million. Sony's Baby Driver eased only 33% in its third lap for an estimated $8.8M pushing the cume to $73.2M.

TOTAL (DOMESTIC GROSS APPROX.) - 3.06 Cr. Kumail Nanjiani's romantic comedy The Big Sick was another impressive story this weekend, pulling in $7.7 million in its first weekend nationwide after a multiple-week limited run. With it coming to additional theaters, interested moviegoers supported it, as it served as an appealing counter-programming option from the traditional blockbuster fare. The film began its global rollout in less than one third of the marketplace Friday, earning an estimated $46 million overall. The drop is comparable to the slips of Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. All of a sudden, there was a 20% deficit for War compared to Rise, and the opening day for the third film was only $2.5 million bigger than the original. It's right on the heels of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, trailing the Marvel tentpole by just $6 million.

The only other new film opening this weekend, the supernatural horror flick "Wish Upon", sputtered at the gate, taking in a mere $5.5 million to land in seventh place. Stateside, interest is low and will stay that way. Given the film's continued durability, it should pass the $400 million mark by mid-August. The likely domestic finish is around $155 million.

In ninth is Transformers: The Last Knight with $2.7 million.
