Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Apes’ Rule for Second Weekend

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
This really isn’t all that shocking—the new releases this weekend didn’t win the hearts of any critics, and last weekend’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was the darling of the box office. It was only inevitable that the apes would conquer this weekend’s charts as well.

New in Theaters: ‘The Purge: Anarchy,’ ‘Sex Tape,’ ‘Planes: Fire and Rescue’

Planes: Fire and Rescue
Sorry for the lateness, folks! It’s been a busy week on this end—fortunately, it looks like we aren’t missing much: while last weekend was a brief break from the run of mediocre summer titles hitting theaters, it seems the break is over, as this weekend brings a horde of poorly-received releases to the box office.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Tops Charts

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
There were absolutely no surprises in the way this weekend’s charts played out. The only new release this weekend was the first quality release in several weeks, and it is one of the bigger titles dropping this summer—there was really no contest. This weekend belongs to Dawn of the Planet .

This weekend looks to be a redeemer for the last couple weeks of mediocre (but, admittedly, lucrative) new releases. This super-hyped new release, sequel to a prequel to a classic sci-fi film, is pulling strong numbers and will hopefully save the box office from the previous lackluster weekends.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Transformers’ Holds the Fort

Transformers: Age of Extinction
With the explosive debut this film made in the box office last weekend, and considering the lackluster round of new releases that entered theaters this weekend, it comes as little surprise that Transformers: Age of Extinction, as poorly rated as it was, was able to keep its spot at the top of the charts easily.

New in Theaters: 'Tammy,' 'Earth to Echo,' 'Deliver Us from Evil'

Earth to Echo
This Fourth of July weekend represents another cool-down from the summer blockbuster craze, especially after the box office explosion that was last weekend. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it will offer any kind of reprieve for people looking for higher quality films; while there are three different releases to redeem the weekend, not one of them was certified fresh.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Transformers’ Takes the Weekend By Storm

Transformers: Age of Extinction
Critics can lament the utter lack of quality in this film (and any other, for that matter) all that they want, but if anything can be learned from how this weekend’s charts played out, it’s this: a lack of quality can be utterly negated by enough hype and notoriety in this film industry.

New in Theaters: 'Transformers: Age of Extinction'

Transformers: Age of Extinction
This weekend looks like it’s bringing back the onslaught of big-budget summer releases with a veritable hurricane of CGI action. Unfortunately, if critics are to be believed, the trend of quality new releases looks like it will be on continued hiatus.

Weekend Box Office Report: 'Think Like a Man Too' Miraculously Tops the Charts

Think Like a Man Too
With this weekend’s releases receiving such mediocre reviews, it looked like it would be a good weekend for the more popular holdover films. However, one of the new releases still managed to make its way to the top, despite all the criticism leveled at it. Still, it was a narrow thing—the holdover films were not far behind.

New in Theaters: 'Think Like a Man Too,' 'Jersey Boys'

Jersey Boys
This weekend looks like it’s going to be a box office combo breaker—the streak of highly-anticipated summer releases meeting with great reviews and huge earnings will be broken by this weekend’s pair of mediocrely-rated, less well-known releases. Still, in the movie biz, anything is possible; perhaps these films will surprise us.
