1 WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE AES - $56,500,000
2 SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING - $45,200,000
3 DESPICABLE ME 3 - $18,947,840
4 BABY DRIVER - $8,750,000
5 THE BIG SICK - $7,600,000
6 WONDER WOMAN - $6,885,000

To compare:
Rise - $54,806,191
Dawn - $72,611,427
War - $56,500,000

A really rather disappointing opening for Apes, I expect they were hoping for more than that (only a couple million more than the start of the trilogy is not great considering this is the ending to it all - especially when you take inflation into account since 2011 too...).

Rather disappointing for Spider-Man too as that is a 61.4% week-on-week drop which is larger than I was hoping for. At least it's already up to $469,370,314 worldwide which is not too shabby.

And in UK box office news

QUOTE
Cars 3 was on par with Cars as the lowest ever opening for a Pixar film in the UK as it arrived in fourth.

Disney’s animated threequel grossed $3.42m (£2.63m) from its 517 sites, narrowly behind Cars’ $3.49m (£2.67m) bow from 513 sites which was the lowest Pixar debut to date.


Cars franchise rekT again!

Here is the UK Box Office by the way for last weekend

1 War for the Planet of the Apes - £7,078,921
2 Despicable Me 3 - £3,803,835
3 Spider-Man: Homecoming - £3,718,666
4 Cars 3 - £2,624,853
5 Baby Driver - £977,187
6 The Beguiled - £411,194
7 Transformers: The Last Knight - £122,288
8 Jagga Jasoos - £113,004
9 Wonder Woman - £110,526
10 All Eyez On Me - £89,626

Other UK Apes openings:
Rise - £5,835,140
Dawn - £8,705,013
War - £7,078,921

So that's also a decline from Dawn which is a bit of a shame, doesn't seem to be performing great box office wise.

That is pretty worrying for Cars too, it seems to have been out for ages now worldwide and is only $224 million worldwide whilst the last one grossed $562.1 million worldwide so not even halfway yet. It seems like the bad reviews for Cars 2 really killed off a lot of good-will that Pixar had at the time.

I'm actually really suprised at Apes success tbh. laugh.gif I genuinely didn't see any promo for it until about 2 weeks before which is bizarre for a huge blockbuster. I'm intrigued to see if the great reviews can keep it afloat.

Woah at 'Cars 3' though sad.gif I've still not seen the 2nd, but the reviews seemed to be favourable for this one, right? But I guess that's what they get for going against a recently fresh 'Despicable Me 3'.

Some news from Comic-Con this year:

- A Dr. Doom film is in production at Fox Studios.
- Cara Delevingne won't return for Suicide Squad 2
- Shazam is going to be the next DCEU film to be filmed. Dwayne Johnson won't appear as Black Adam.
- Pacific Rim teaser
- Avengers: Infinity War concept art

As much as I'd like Fantastic Four to just be return to Disney Marvel, a Dr Doom solo movie actually sounds pretty interesting and I'd definitely check it out.

I like the Avengers art too, this film is going to be jam-packed full of A-listers *-*

Sorry to boost an old topic but I searched "Marvel" and this is the first relevant topic for it haha.

Stan Lee is apparently optimistic about Marvel Studios getting back the rights for both the X-Men and Fantastic 4 characters/working with Fox just like they did with Sony for Spiderman!

Ahhh. Exciting. Please be true!
