‘Apes 2’ Rules Soft Box Office

Dawn of the Planet of the ApesThis weekend brought more bad news for the summer box office, with revenue in North America tumbling 24 percent over the same frame last year, as a trio of new films — The Purge: Anarchy, Planes: Fire & Rescue and Sex Tape — all did less business than expected. Fox’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes had no trouble staying at No. 1 in its second weekend, holding better than any previous summer tentpole. The Fox sequel fell 50 percent to $36 million for a domestic total of $139 million.

The top 12 films of the weekend, as of Sunday, July 20, are as follows:
