After a Friday night showdown that heavily tipped the scales in favor of the survival-horror thriller "The Purge: Anarchy," "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" came back strong this weekend to take the No. 1 spot at the box office.
Along with "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," "The Purge: Anarchy" may be one of the summer's sequels that actually improves on the original.
If this weekend's number one movie Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ? the second entry in the rebooted Apes franchise ? has a spiritual sibling in the original series of films, it is 1972?s Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. While Conquest was the fourth movie in the franchise to arrive in cinemas it is, like Dawn, the second according to the interior timeline of its series and, again like director Matt Reeves' new film, features an apocalyptic showdown between apes and humans. Thus, it seems appropriate that this weekend Dawn of the Planet of the Apes comprehensively conquered the domestic box office by earning an estimated $73 million, exceeding both expectations and the $54.8 million opening weekend of its predecessor, 2011?s Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Michael Bay publicly blew off the critics who excoriated Transformers: Age of Extinction, and he's laughing all the way to the bank. Not only did the fourth film in the franchise win the domestic box-office for the second week in a row, but it has already surpassed Avatar to become the biggest box-office hit in Chinese history.
"Transformers: Age of Extinction" showed its summer might once more by holding onto the No. 1 spot in its second weekend of release, grossing an estimated $36.4 million from 4,233 locations and effectively shutting out the slate of new releases. Michael Bay's explosive epic also hit $400 million internationally after just 12 days in release.

Holding off a nice run from "22 Jump Street," the romantic comedy "Think Like a Man Too" took the top spot this weekend with a $30 million opening.

Nine years ago, Frankie Valli was rescued from oldies-station oblivion with the smash Broadway musical "Jersey Boys." The show chronicles the real-life rise-and-fall-and-rise-again of four crooners from the mobbed-up mean streets of 1960s New Jersey who called themselves the Four Seasons and cranked out a seemingly endless string of hit records, including the love ditty ''Sherry,'' the triumphant ''Walk Like a Man,'' and the bouncy bubblegum bop of ''Big Girls Don't Cry.''

Naturally, the curious moviegoer is led to ask: Could the next "X-Men" movie possibly feature even more X-Men, as we evolve towards the ultimate singularity moment when life will be measured not in time but in unconfirmed "X-Men" casting rumors?

New film "Neighbors" (Cinema Score: B) easily won the domestic box office battle this weekend. Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, and Zac Efron's frat comedy earned an estimated $51.1 million, making for a global total of $85 million so far.

The threesome of Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton proved to be too much for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."
When Cameron Diaz, a type-A corporate attorney ? you know this because she wears power skirts and taps officiously on a laptop in a skybox office the size of a swimming pool ? gets swept off her feet by a dashing businessman ("Game of Thrones'" Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), it all seems too good to be true. Because of course, it is: It turns out he's got a wife in Connecticut (Leslie Mann) and a barely-legal blond (Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton) in the Hamptons.

Divergent was dauntless at the box office this weekend, easily winning the top spot with an estimated $56 million.
