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.

This week there wasn't too much of a surprise to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 enter the box office at the very top after a much hyped and anticipated release.
A sequel to the 2012 re-boot franchise, a new generation of people have now accepted this take on the webbed hero in contrast to Sam Raimi and Toby Maguire's 2002 - 2007 series of films.

Other new films
The Love Punch
This time last year Olympus Has Fallen took over from Tom Cruise in Oblivion to become the top film on it's debut.
Five years ago Monsters Vs. Aliens was still holding the top spot with the highest new film coming from I Love You Man at four.
Ten years ago it was still Scooby Doo 2 Monsters Unleashed at the top with the highest new film The Butterfly Effect coming in at five.
Fifteen years ago saw The Faculty climb to the top knocking The Rugrats Movie down to two while the highest new film was An Ideal Husband at three.
Sorry about the late report this week, Easter holidays has delayed things.
This week Captain America: The Winter Soldier returns to the top of the UK box office, surprisingly knocking Rio 2 down to third, surprisingly because it's the Uk Easter holidays and the one big kids film seems to have died at the box office, although Captain America does have teenage appeal.
Highest new film this week is a return from Hammer Horror. The film The Quiet Ones is Hammers first film since the Daniel Radcliffe hit The Woman in Black, and although being no where near as big a hot as that film still does well landing at 6 with £681,305.
Other new films on this weeks chart are:
The Raid 2: Berabdal
Khumba a Zebras Tale
One year ago Oblivion starring Tom Cruise entered the chart at the top knocking The Croods down to second place.

This week in the UK Rio 2 makes the big step and flies to the top of the box office chart on it's debut weekend.
It was actually quite quiet this week and Rio 2 takes the crown with a relatively small £2.9 million. The sequel to 2011's Rio, the film enters the top just as the Easter holidays start so expect it to stay for a couple of week.
Last weeks top film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier falls down to 2 this week with £2.8 million taking it's 10 day total to £10.9 million.
