In Brett Ratner's adaptation of Steve Moore's 2008 graphic novel, "Hercules," as played by Dwayne Johnson, is a world-weary mercenary who allows others to believe ? and perhaps embellish ? his heroic tales. Travelling with a Magnificent Seven-style band of warriors who are lured by riches to defend the beleaguered kingdom of Lord Cotys (John Hurt), the mighty man is still haunted by nightmares of the three-headed Cerberus, and he mourns the murder of his wife and children ? though there are those who whisper that he himself killed them.

Box office report: 'Apes' conquers, 'Boyhood' starts strongupdated Mon Jul 14 2014 12:06:01

If this weekend's number one movie Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ? the second entry in the rebooted Apes franchise ? has a spiritual sibling in the original series of films, it is 1972?s Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. While Conquest was the fourth movie in the franchise to arrive in cinemas it is, like Dawn, the second according to the interior timeline of its series and, again like director Matt Reeves' new film, features an apocalyptic showdown between apes and humans. Thus, it seems appropriate that this weekend Dawn of the Planet of the Apes comprehensively conquered the domestic box office by earning an estimated $73 million, exceeding both expectations and the $54.8 million opening weekend of its predecessor, 2011?s Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
