Box Office: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’ $70M+ As ‘Boyhood’ Flexes Muscles

Deadline: All bets are that after a $27.8M Friday (which includes that $4.1M late night start on Thursday), Fox’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will pull in around $70M+, which means the second installment may end up doing around 30% better than the first when the dust clears on Monday morning. Don’t even think the World Cup finals can keep it in the $60M range now. (Fox just weighed in with its estimate of $70M at 7:50 AM). It’s swinging through a smattering of international territories right now (South Korea, Australia/New Zealand, India) but won’t go strong through Europe and Latin America until after the World Cup. The first installment — Rise of the Planet of the Apes — ended up grabbing $176.7M domestically and around $305M internationally with its biggest territory being the UK/Ireland ($33.7M).
