Sci-fi blockbuster Rise of the Planet of the Apes has taken over the U.S. box office chart to score a second consecutive week at number one.
The Planet of the Apes prequel, directed by Rupert Wyatt and starring James Franco and Andy Serkis, stunned film experts in America last week when it debuted with takings of $54 million.
And the ape epic is still swinging from the top of the chart, racking up another $27.5 million in ticket sales. Its 10-day total now stands at a healthy $104.9 million.
The Help, based on the bestselling novel by Kathryn Stockett, exceeded expectations and opened in second place with $25.5 million and a total of $35.4 over the 5-day opening.
Other new entries included horror sequel Final Destination 5 at three and Jesse Eisenberg's action comedy 30 Minutes or Less, which debuted at five.
The biggest shocker was Glee: The 3D Concert Movie which opened at #11 with only $5.7 million.
