Dawn of the Planet of the Apes


China went ape this weekend at the movies as their $47 million opening on "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" vaulted the Fox title back into the International Box Office lead with a nifty $51.2 million, bringing its overall cume to $613 million worldwide.  "Lucy" continued to open additional territories and held its ground with another $27.2 million this weekend, pushing its worldwide total to $107 million.  "Guardians of the Galaxy" ($19.7 million), "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" ($13.0 million) and a South Korea's #1 opening of "Into the Storm" ($12.9 million) round out the top 5.  "Guardians" will get a boost from territories such as China and Japan still to come, and "Ninja Turtles" will do the same as most of Europe is still set to debut.
