Maurice is my favorite ape, hes funny. But, I wanna know, was it Maurice in the 2001 remake that was the old ape (I forgot some names since its a reimagining also...)'s friend? Or was that just another ape, cuz he looks like a circus organantang. Please answer if you know, also tell me, is Dawn of the Apes still coming out in 2014, I haven't heard much news of it... I might check movieinsider when I have time, but if you find this first, please answer if you know.Read more >

In it's first week at the box office, the apes managed to take home a cool fifty-four million dollars and be the number one at the box office.

The film stars James Franco, Freida Pinto, and Andy Serkis. The film was probably helped a little bit by critics who seemed to be mostly favorable of the film. Also high-praise has been given to the realistic and almost photo like quality of the apes.
The Smurfs movie finished at second place and Cowboys and Aliens finished at third place.
