July 13 Box Office Dawn Planet Apes Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: July 13th, 2014

The apes rose again at the box office, but overall it was another lackluster showing from the top 10.

In at number 1 is Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (read our review) with $73 million. That’s a decent improvement over Rise of the Planet of the Apes‘ $55 million in 2011 and is a clear sign the strong buzz surrounding the film did its job. And although it’s still early, we suspect it’s safe to say this isn’t the last audiences have seen of Caesar.

Internationally, Dawn opened in only a few markets, pulling in about $30 million overall. Like in North America, the sequel is showing an uptick when compared to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and the film should continue to show strong growth as it expands.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is the number 2 film with $16.5 million, which brings its domestic total up to $209 million. It was yet another 50% drop for Transformers 4, but the spectacle-filled blockbuster has already done plenty of damage over its past two weeks. Now at $752 million worldwide, Transformers is already (yes, already) the highest grossing film of the year and well on its way to another $1 billion haul. Can any of the remaining 2014 releases top this film?

Coming in at number 3 is Tammy with $12.9 million. Melissa McCarthy’s latest comedy is well below her more successful films’ totals, but is doing just fine with $57 million overall.

The number 4 film this weekend is 22 Jump Street with $6.7 million. Audience’s return trip to Jump Street has been a huge success, pulling in $171 million domestic.

Rounding out the top 5 is How to Train Your Dragon 2 with $5.8 million. Fox’s animated sequel is still well behind its predecessor, which makes justifying a third film that much harder. That being said, the film has grossed $152 million domestic and $349 million worldwide.

In at number 6 is Earth to Echo with $5.5 million, which brings its domestic total up to $24 million. The good news is the film has nearly doubled its $13 million budget, despite being almost universally overlooked by audiences.

Deliver Us From Evil fell to the number 7 spot this weekend with $4.7 million. Clearly the horror film, which boasts a solid cast and director, didn’t resonate so well with fans of the genre, having grossed a disappointing $25 million after two weeks.

Coming in at number 8 is Maleficent with $4.1 million. In case anyone hadn’t heard, Disney’s live-action fairy tale adaptations are pretty popular. Maleficent, for example, has grossed $221 million domestic and $668 million worldwide.

Jumping up to the number 9 spot this weekend is Begin Again with $2.9 million. Mark Ruffalo’s musical comedy is doing so-so business in limited release ($3,126/screen) and has tallied $5 million thus far.

Rounding out the top 10 is Jersey Boys with $2.51 million, bringing its domestic tally up to $41 million. While Clint Eastwood’s musical has finally surpassed its $40 million production budget, it likely won’t make much more than $50M total.

Outside the top 10: Richard Linklater’s Boyhood opened with $359,000 on just 5 screens for a per-screen-average of $71,800. That’s the second best per-screen for a 2014 release, behind The Grand Budapest Hotel.

[NOTE: These are only weekend box office estimates - based on Friday and Saturday ticket sales coupled with adjusted expectations for Sunday. Official weekend box office results will be released on Monday, July 14th - at which time we'll update this post with any changes.]

  1. A well deserved outcome for Dawn. A great all around movie ad probably the best of the summer for me. It definitely didn’t seem like it was longer than two hours because the pacing was terrific.

    Ironically, for all of this Andy Serkis award talk, which I don’t think is on the same level as acting, Koba was the star of the movie I felt. I also rally like blue-eyes and yeah Ceaser was great too.

    We may not have the quantity of movies this summer, but I feel we are getting some really quality blockbusters.

    • Agreed; quite honestly, I think I’ve enjoyed every movie I’ve seen this year. I enjoyed Transformers 4 for what it was, I thought A Million Ways To Die In The West was funny (though it wasn’t amazing), and despite the plot issues I really liked The Amazing Spider-Man 2. I loved Cap 2 and X-Men, and I’m seeing Apes in a few hours!

      Looking forward to Guardians… and maybe TMNT. We’ll see.

      • Darn, I forgot about Godzilla. That was good too!

    • Agreed. There has been more letdown films this year than in the years past so seeing how well balanced Dawn has been is a huge relief. I can only hope some film makers will take note that you can have some great visuals and still maintain an excellent overall story. Cap 3 did an okay job with this as well but TASM 2 was just all over the place. Godzilla had a very basic story

      • True. Imagine if Dawn had been made by James Gunn. The whole movie would have been about Caesar grabbing his junk and getting into arguments about whether his laugh was real or not.

        • So, you’ve chosen to start hating a movie before it even comes out?

    • Yes, finally an actual good movie actually does well. I’m still pissed about how Edge of Tomorrow did so poorly in the USA. It was a wonderful movie and deserved to be number 1 in the BO when it came out… Well, at least it’s not a movie I would expect a sequel from, so I guess I don’t have to worry about it. I’ll definitely get the blu-ray though, for some repeat viewings, lol. Dawn of Planet of the Apes was amazing too. And as usual, none of my friends were interested in watching it. I swear, they represent why terrible movies usually do better than good movies now. They all say the same about Edge of Tomorrow “Oh, doesn’t look interesting.” Then they go watch that transformers trash…

  2. Woah, spoilers in the first paragraph.

  3. This year is Hunger Games year and next year is Avengers year. So Hunger Games will top Transformers and Avengers will be at the top next year.

  4. F#cking Transformers…

  5. I will watch Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Earth to Echo, Deliver Us From Evil, and Maleficent. Of course, those will be for bluray. No movie theater for me. And also, none of another like 22 Jump, Tammy and etc is for me at all.

  6. This makes me look forward to this week’s Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes release more than ever (few more days to go, first film that looks good since Godzilla).

    • It was honestly much better than Godzilla. Not detracting anything from Godzilla but when it came to suspense and the eventual climactic payoff, Apes was brilliant. Best of the year!

      • Well, I’ll see this Friday, the first was surprisingly good, despite the presence of Franco.

    • Godzilla was good but it was a little boring at times.

      • I honestly never found Godzilla boring for any length of time. It held my interest from opening title to end credits.

    • I agree. Godzilla was good but Apes was freaking incredible. And I loved the soundtrack. Giacchino’s done it again!!

  7. Apes was pretty damn good… Cap2 and apes were probably the only good movies I’ve seen this summer. Don’t understand the love for Godzilla, that movie was boring and dumb, still better than the last one I guess…

  8. Cast Chinese actors. Make loads of money in China. It’s simple.

    GOTG won’t outdo T4 unless Batista suddenly takes a bullet for the president or something else boost interest. So, galvatron in t5 or 6 is the question.
