If the Friday box office is any indication, it’s going to be another meh weekend at the movies. After pulling in an impressive $72.6 million in its debut, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes should remain on top for a second frame – although it was surpassed on Friday by newcomer The Purge: Anarchy. The successor to last summer’s R-rated thriller earned an estimated $13 million and took first place on Friday. For its first weekend, however, the sequel is expected to earn $28 million, and that means Apes 2 should overtake it in the three-day race. In its sophomore frame, Apes is expected to bring in about $34 million, which would give it one of the best holds among this summer’s major releases.
Details on Sex Tape, Planes: Fire & Rescue and Friday’s top five are after the jump.
