War for the Planet of the Apes won its first round with thumping victory across the 3,251 North American locations. On the first day, it amassed $5 million that is 22% more than the haul of “Dawn of the Planet Apes” three years ago. While the “Dawn” got only $4.1 million, the “War” is well above the two-tens.
