Dawn of the Planet of the Apes had a $73 million debut this weekend - shattering some early estimates of $50 million - thanks in part to word-of-mouth and favorable glowing reviews.

In addition, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes earned an "A-" CinemaScore and currently sits at the top of the movie review aggregate site, Rotten Tomatoes, with 91% positive review rating and a 93% positive audience reaction.

The $73 million was good enough to surpass the previous Apes movie, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which netted $54 million for its opening back in 2011.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes currently has a worldwide total of just over $100 million, with the addition of $30.4 million from international screenings.

A third Planet of the Apes film has already been greenlit, which will see the return of Dawn of the Planet Of The Apes' Matt Reeves.

Check out a new spot as well:

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Gary Oldman, Kerri Russell, Jason Clarke, Kodi-Smit McPhee, Judu Greer and Andy Serkis.

Synopsis:

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species.
