Apes Rule the Box Office Again. Transformers Rule Globally.

dawn of the planet of the apesDawn of the Planet of the Apes remained in the top spot at the box office. The film earned an additional $36 million, only a 50 percent drop from the previous week’s debut, which isn’t bad since other sequels this summer have seen a much sharper decline.

In other geek movie news… Transformers: Age of Extinction was fifth this past weekend, and to date, the film has earned $227.2 million. The film has a chance to challenge for the top spot as far as domestic grosses.

Domestically, the top comic related films of the summer are Captain America: The Winter Soldier, still holding strong with $258.4 million, X-Men: Days of Future Past is in third at $230.5 million. Transformers is fourth. The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is at $201.6 million for sixth. 300: Rise of An Empire is at 17 with $106.6 million, and Edge of Tomorrow has earned $96.6 million. Snowpiercer is at $3.5 million.

Globally, thinks are a bit different. Transformers: Age of Extinction tops things globally with $886.3 million earned. X-Men is second at $736.3 million. Cap is third at $712.7 million. Edge of Tomorrow has earned $357.9 million. 300: Rise of An Empire has earned $331.1 million. Snowpiercer has earned $83.7 million.

Comics at the Box Office

edge of tomorrowWhile there wasn’t any new “comic” based movies debuting this past weekend, there were still quite a few in the theaters. Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow is still doing decent at the box office, dropping 37.4% in its third weekend and earned $10.3 million. Domestically the film has earned $74.5 million, and will wind up somewhere around $100 million when its domestic run ends. Internationally the film added $21.5 million to bring its international total to $218.3 million. Japan has yet to open, so internationally the film should wind up around $300 million.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is still going strong in its fifth week. It earned $6.2 million domestically and is up to $216.8 million. Globally the film has earned $692 million.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is still in theaters and earned $600,000 for $199.5 million domestically. Globally, the film is at $702.8 million.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier earned $197,000 and globally it has earned $710.7 million. The film is the top earner globally this year and tied with The Lego Movie to be the top earner domestically.

The top earning films so far this year are movies based on comic books. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is on top but The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is going to be close, and might top the film. X-Men: Days of Future Past is right now in third and doing well, so we’ll see where it ends up.

This coming week sees the opening of Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Snowpiercer, based on the graphic novel.

Edge of Tomorrow, Days of Future Past, Spider-Man & Cap’s Weekend Box Office

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is close to being the top movie domestically of 2014. The Lego Movie currently has the top spot. Globally, Cap is in the lead with Spidey about $10 million behind. In fact Cap, Spidey, and DOFP make up the top three films so far in 2014 globally.
