There was serious monkey business at movie theaters around the country this weekend.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes easily conquered all comers at box office, garnering $54 million and earning a spot as the fifth-best August opening ever. Guess our friends at Movie Fanatic weren't the only fans of this James Franco-anchored remake.
A rundown of the top five:
- Rise of the Planet of the Apes: $54 million
- The Smurfs: $21 million
- Cowboys & Aliens: $15.7 million
- The Change-Up: $13.5 million
- Captain America: The First Avenger: $13 million
