'Apes' flicks 'Spider-Man' aside to win box office war

Lionsgate's "The Big Sick" finished fifth with an estimated 7.6 million US dollars in its fourth weekend.

Wonder Woman it yet again the longest stay on the box office with a 7 week run and the highest total grossing film with $380 million from the USA box office.

The strong acclaim for both "War" and "Homecoming" should help the films keep a steady audience at the box office as the summer movie season winds down in the coming weeks.

Rounding out the top five is the indie darling The Big Sick from comedian Kumail Nanjiani. Moviegoers (57% males; 63% 25 and older) gave it an A-minus CinemaScore, and it has a 94% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes. This group includes, in addition the wonderfully wise elder Maurice the orangutan (Karin Konoval, a veteran of the previous two films), a mute little human girl who has been orphaned (Amiah Miller) and a talkative yet wryly doleful zoo-escapee chimp who introduces himself only as Bad Ape.
