“War for the Planet of the Apes” is on track to pound up $102.5 million worldwide during its opening weekend.
The latest from Fox and Chernin is eyeing $46 million from international markets. It’s opening at four major markets, and 46 total, accounting for about 36% of the film’s eventual footprint. The epic, directed by Matt Reeves and starring Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson, is leading the domestic box office this weekend with $56.5 million.
Still, the international winner this weekend is once again “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” The release is scoring $72.3 million abroad from 63 total markets. Its global cume stands at $261.1 million. There are still several major markets for the movie to enter, including Spain, Japan and China.
Posting similarly large numbers internationally is Universal and Illumination’s “Despicable Me 3.” The estimate this weekend is $71 million from 61 territories, and the worldwide total is estimated at $619.4 million.
