Barring Christopher Nolan taking on another epic tentpole franchise like his Dark Knight trilogy, it will likely be difficult for the director to top his opening weekend record, $160.8 million, set by The Dark Knight Rises in 2012. That tally was almost as much as the domestic total for his last film, the 2014 mind-bender Interstellar, which opened with $47.5 million en route to a domestic tally of $188 million, an international total of $487.1 million for a global tally of $675.1 million, from a $175 million budget.

But last year, the blackout was lifted much earlier, due to a spate of underperforming movies, which allowed U.S. summer movies like The Legend of Tarzan, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, The Secret Life of Pets and Jason Bourne to be released in Chinese theaters. Some box office analysts thought the blackout lift last year could signal that the … [Read more...] about Spider-Man, Apes & Valerian Release Dates Delayed in China
War for the Planet of the Apes left things off in such a place that a continuation seemed possible, but it also provided enough closure to serve as a satisfying ending. Considering the success, why would Disney opt to reboot? Since the Fox merger, Disney has taken a bath on movies that were produced by the studio that they ultimately inherited.
