The last in the trilogy of Planet of The Apes prequel movies opens at the top of the Uk box office this week knocking Spider-Man Homecoming off after just a single week.
War For The Planet of The Apes which stars Woody Harrelson and Any Serkis hits the top with a weekend gross of £7.1 million, a very good gross for a critically praised film.
The trilogy of films has been constant on its debut and this does better than Rise but not quite at good as Dawn's £8 million debut.
With this in mind I'd expect this to end its run in the £30 million region.
Spider-Man Homecoming falls to number 3 this week leapfrogging over Despicable Me 3 by the tightest of margins with a £3.7 million weekend.
This brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release and is looking set to match the first Spider-Man film from 2002.
Despicable Me at number 2 took £3.8 million and has now grossed £26 million from 3 weekends of release.
For the Monday - Sunday week the top film would have been Spider-Man with a £7.4 million weekly gross with Apes second and Despicable Me 3 third.
For the third weekend running The Boss Baby is the longest running film with 15 weeks and the highest grossing with £28 million.

A new number one enters the UK video chart this week in the shape of Disney/Mavels Ant-Man.
Ant-Man was released at the UK box office on 17th July 2015, it entered the box office at the top of the chart with a gross of £4 million.
The film only spent 6 week on the chart but spent another 10 weeks at UK cinemas outside the chart.
In total the film grossed £16.3 million in the UK making it the 264th highest grossing UK film, world wide it grossed $518.5 million and it the 138th top film.
Inside Out fell from the top to number 2 this week.
Also new this week is Magic Mike XXL at number 6 and little known film Joe and Casper Hit The Road at number 15.
The summer is over and so comes to an end the summer blockbuster season where the big money for films is made.
As with many years sequels and series is where the big money is and leading the way in 2015 is the return of the Jurassic Dinosaur series after 14 years away in the form of Jurassic World.
Jurassic World took £63.6 million over the summer and will probably end up being the top film of the year as well, although there is still one film which may burst its bubble.
Animation scores big again this year and the second and third biggest movies are Minions which takes £44 million and Pixar's return Inside Out which has taken £30.6 million to date.
This years sequel to Avengers Assemble may not have made the numbers that Disney were hoping but it still did very well and is the 4th top film of the summer with £30 million.
Rounding out the top 5 is a bit of a surprise with Mad Max Fury Road taking £17.1 million, the return to the Mad Max world after 30 years proving a hit with critics and the public alike.
Biggest losers of the season are Terminator Genisys which didn't excite a modern audience, Ted 2 which simple didn't bring on the laughs of the original and Magic Mike XXL which didn't live up to the erotic expectations of its core market.
Check out all the top summer films at the UK box office.
There is no moving the little yellow Minions from the top of the world box office this week despite strong competition from Marvels Ant-Man.
The Minions held their own with a weekly gross of $116.4 million from 57 countries, it's world gross now sits at a very healthy $625.5 million.
Ant-Man flies into second poisons on its first week of release and takes an excellent $114.4 million from just 38 countries.
From just 2 countries Monster Hunt takes an incredible $72 million and sits at number 3 while Jian Bing Man takes $61 million from just a single country.
The full world top 10 looks like this:
Minions got released in America this weekend and duly takes itself to the top of the world box office with a world gross of $239.5 million.
The Minions have pulled in a world gross of $395.7 million so far and it is on its way to grossing a magic billion.
Not pulling in the number like anyone expected Terminator Genisys this week falls down to number 2 with a world gross of $61 million.
The 5 Terminator film has to date pulled in $224.8 million in world grosses, not great for a well established franchise.
Jurassic world is starting to slow down this week but it now stands at $1.4 billion in world grosses.
