Box Office tracking for War for the Planet of the Apes has now been revealed and it is set to get a decent opening next weekend.

Things may go higher thanks to strong reviews, although it still has to compete with the second weekend of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

According to a report on Variety, War for the Planet of the Apes is currently tracking to get over $55 million or $65 million for its opening weekend over in North America. This puts it in line with the first movie of the franchise back in 2011.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes earned $54.8 million which is great for a reboot. It went on to earn over $400 million worldwide after that.

However, the estimate for War for the Planet of the Apes is tracking lower than the opening that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes received.

It had over $72.6 million in its opening weekend back in 2014 and went on to earn over $700 million worldwide. This is thanks to the film getting over $500 million overseas.

It's possible War for the Planet of the Apes could get similar numbers with all of the buzz it has been getting.

The only things that might slow it down is dependent on the earnings of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk. These three movies are the ones to look out for this July.

Whether or not 20th Century Fox plans to make more movies in the franchise remains to be seen. This is being billed as the finale of the trilogy.

20th Century Fox could always make a movie set in the far future with a different cast of apes and another director at the helm.

This is because director Matt Reeves will be going on to make The Batman for Warner Bros.
