‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Set for September Release in China

War for the Planet of the Apes” is set to get a theatrical release in mainland China in mid-September. Rights-holder 20th Century Fox confirmed that the film will open in Chinese theaters on Sept. 15.

The date is some two months after its North American outing, and about three weeks after the end of China’s unofficial summer blackout period in which Hollywood import titles cannot be given new releases.

That break comes to an end with the Aug. 25 release of “Cars 3,” “Baby Driver” and “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.” Christopher Nolan’s war drama “Dunkirk” follows on Sept 1. And “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is set for Sept. 8.

Previous installments of the “Apes” franchise garnered good results in China. “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” grossed $30.8 million in October 2011. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” earned $107 million in September 2014.
