Rise of the Planet of the Apes may have not gotten the best reviews but it sure scored at the box office with a total of $77.4 million worldwide this weekend
According to Variety,
Moviegoers gave rise to an optimistic global debut for 20th Century Fox’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” which bowed to an estimated $77.4 million worldwide.
“Apes” earned most of its global start from the U.S., estimating $54 million. That’s just a bit less than what Fox’s “X-Men: First Class” earned in its opening weekend with $55.1 million domestically — a considerable achievement for “Apes” since “First Class” launched in June.
