1) Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes- 36M Weekend, 138.9M Total
The Apes lead again, easily winning, and dipping only 50% from last weekend. It’s not a bad drop considering how high it opened, and how most big films drop more than 50% in their 2nd weekend. It will face more direct competition next weekend from both Lucy and Hercules, drawing the action audience in.
2) The Purge: Anarchy- 28.3M Weekend, 28.3M Total
The Purge sequel opened below the original, but still did a good job, all things considered. It’s just a matter of time before they announce a third Purge. These things are super cheap to make.
3) Planes 2- 18M Weekend, 18M total
With a budget of 50M, Planes 2 is still on track to be a profitable sequel. Even if it opened slightly below the original.
4) Sex Tape- 15M Weekend, 15M Total
This was kind of a flop, and also opened below Cameron Diaz’s The Other Woman. A C+ cinemascore doesn’t bode well for the future.
5) Transformers 4- 10M Weekend, 227.1M Total
Transformers dropped only 38%, meaning that it is finally developing some legs.
6) Tammy- 7.6M Weekend, 71.2M Total
7) 22 Jump Street- 4.7M Weekend, 180.5M Total
