While it underperformed by quite a bit last weekend, by most box office standards, 20th Century Fox's War For the Planet Of the Apes still managed to come out on top, taking in $56.2 million, which was more on par with the franchise opener Rise of the Planet of the Apes ($54.8 million) in 2011, than its predecessor Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ($72.6 million) in 2014. This weekend, those damn dirty apes go up against three vastly different newcomers, Warner Bros.' World War II epic Dunkirk, Universal's R-rated comedy Girls Trip and STX Entertainment's sci-fi thriller Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

Over the past few years, China has grown to become the second largest box office market in the world, behind the U.S., with Chinese grosses often saving some movies from the brink of total failure. With the summer movie season in full swing, a new report reveals that there has yet to be a release date announced in China for last weekend's box office winner, Spider-Man: Homecoming, this week's War For the Planet of the Apes and next week's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
