Saturday Am Update: With an estimated $22.1 million on Friday, War for the Planet of the Apes is on its way to a #1 finish at the weekend box office, though it's looking to fall short of Mojo's forecast. Current industry expectations are for a finish anywhere from $56-58 million, though that could bump up a bit considering it's still playing a bit ahead of where Kong: Skull Island was after it brought in $20.1 million on its first day and went on to gross $61 million. Even better, War received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences compared to Kong's "B+". Meanwhile, Spider-Man: Homecoming delivered an estimated $13.6 million in its second Friday, looking to call closer to 60% in its sophomore frame than 50% for a weekend around $47.5 million. Expanding this weekend, Lionsgate and Amazon's The Big Sick brought in an estimated $2.47 million from 2,597 theaters (+2,271) and is looking at a weekend around $8 million, again short of Mojo's forecast. »
