20th Century Fox reports that Rise of the Planet of the Apes was able to grab $1.25 million from 1,124 locations at midnight. That's a respectable start for a film that nobody had pegged for even a $50 million opening heading into the weekend.
The midnight debut puts Apes smack in the middle of Clash of the Titans with $1.5 million and Sucker Punch with $825K when it comes to midnight grosses.
