Although it's not in the stratosphere of early summer tentpole superhero titles, "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" opened to a respectable, though hardly overwhelming, $4 million in its Thursday night late shows last night.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Although it's not in the stratosphere of early summer tentpole superhero titles, "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" opened to a respectable $4 million in its Thursday night late shows last night.  The main thing to keep in mind is that although that total places it only 9th for pre-opening evening shows this summer, "Apes" Thursday night shows commenced at 10:00 PM rather than starts of 8:00 PM or even 7:00 PM that other films this summer began their run with. Tracking is still placing the film at around the $60+ million level for the weekend (I predicted $63 on Monday and I'll stick with that).
