Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is off to a strong start at the global box office after exceeding expectations with a $129 million opening weekend.

Despite positive reviews, 20th Century Studios' latest Apes adventure received a disappointing "B" CinemaScore, which suggested that audiences may not be quite as taken with the movie as the majority of critics. Even so, Kingdom managed to take in $56.5 million in North America and $72 million overseas.

The movie has a reported budget of $160 million.
