'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Leads Monday with $4.21M; 'The Purge: Anarchy' #2 with $3.32MJuly 22, 2014 01:05 PM

by Daniel Garris

Fox's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes led the way on Monday with $4.21 million. The critically acclaimed 3D sci-fi action sequel has now led the daily box office for ten of the past eleven days. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was down 62 percent from Sunday and down a respectable 49 percent from last Monday. The eleven-day total for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stands at $143.41 million. That is ahead of pre-release expectations and places the film an impressive 32 percent ahead of the $108.76 million eleven-day take of 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Universal's The Purge: Anarchy claimed second place with $3.32 million. The sequel to last year's break-out horror film was down a healthy 54 percent from Sunday. In comparison, The Purge fell 51.5 percent on its first Monday to gross $3.31 million. With a very solid four-day start of $33.14 million, The Purge: Anarchy is running 11 percent behind the $37.37 million four-day start of The Purge. However, daily holds for The Purge: Anarchy thus far suggests that the film will hold up a bit better than The Purge did.

Planes: Fire and Rescue claimed third with $1.86 million. The modestly budgeted computer animated sequel from Disney fell 59 percent from Sunday. Planes: Fire and Rescue has grossed $19.37 million through four days. That is a bit below expectations and 22 percent behind the $24.72 million four-day take of last year's Planes (which fell 58 percent on its first Monday to gross $2.49 million). Planes: Fire and Rescue will hope to hold up well going forward due in part to the limited amount of options for family audiences throughout the rest of the summer.

Sony's Sex Tape placed in fourth with $1.55 million. The comedy starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel was down 58 percent from Sunday, which isn't the greatest daily hold for an R-rated comedy on its first Monday. Sex Tape has grossed a significantly poorer than expected $16.16 million through four days of release. That places the film a very disappointing 55 percent behind the $35.61 million four-day start of 2011's Bad Teacher.

Transformers: Age of Extinction rounded out Monday's top five with $1.17 million. The fourth installment of Paramount's sci-fi action franchise was down 60 percent from Sunday and down 42 percent from last Monday. Transformers: Age of Extinction has grossed $228.17 million through 25 days. That currently ranks the film as the fifth highest grossing release of 2014 thus far domestically and before long the film will surpass Maleficent and X-Men: Days of Future Past to move into third place.
