War For The Planet of the Apes fends of the competition of Marvel's Spider-Man to take the no.1 spot in the US Box Office
It was a busier weekend than usual at the box office with two monumental blockbusters going head-to-head. This weekend was dominated by 'War for the Planet of the Apes' and 'Spider-Man: Homecoming', with the former taking the no.1 spot.
The latest installment in the Apes franchise still underachieved compared to early predictions with the film grossing $56.5m from 4,022 locations, after being predicted to be around the $60m mark. This puts the film at the same level of 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes', but below the intermitting 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' which scored a huge $72.6m domestic opening.

The first installment in the DC hit-franchise is still fresh in our minds, but details are emerging about the sequel.
Wonder Woman may still be showing on the silver screen, but it seems as though the sequel to the hit film is already in the works with multiple reports that Diana Prince will again find herself in a war zone, this time in the 1980s Cold War. The rumours started courtesy of inside sources at ScreenRant, with suspicions being confirmed by The Wrap.
In amongst the rumours is also the news that Chris Pine could return as Steve Trevor in the second instalment of the franchise. No other news has been made available, but we already know that Patty Jenkins is working on the DC film with boss Geoff Johns.

There's rumours of a possible movie adaptation on the radar at the moment for DC's biggest heroine - so who would be your Wonder Woman?
Following Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' trilogy and the recent Superman epic 'Man Of Steel', there seems to be one obvious direction to go in next for DC Comics with their film franchises: a Wonder Woman movie, of course. The Amazonian knockout was first portrayed successfully by Lynda Carter in the TV series between 1975 and 1979, and it hasn't yet been put to cinema neither as a solo project for the character nor as a Justice League of America set-up. There have been all sorts of rumours flying about recently with Jaimie Alexander talking a lot about the supposed upcoming Wonder Woman movie and we've got pretty excited discussing who might be considered for the role.
So, who do we think would do the Wonder Woman costume 'justice'?
Jaimie Alexander: The 'Thor' actress has set tongues wagging as she gushed about the character in an interview with Forbes. 'I would love for DC to put Wonder Woman in one of their upcoming flicks, either in her own movie or Batman vs. Superman, or just something even to introduce her', she said. Batman vs. Superman, hmm? Does she know something we don't? On the suggestion that she could be the one to play her, she insisted, 'I'm appreciative to the people who ask my opinion of the character, and that's been pretty amazing.' Jaimie would be perfect for the role given her portrayal of Asgardian strong-woman Sif in the 'Thor' movies, and she even bears an interesting resemblance to Lucy Lawless as 90s TV hero Xena, Warrior Princess.
