Fourth of July box office was down 43% percent from last year. In 2013, Despicable Me 2 opened to $83.5M, but this year, Paramount Pictures' Transformers: Age of Extinction "should have a $35.5M to $36M three-day and a $52.8M to $53.4M five-day holiday weekend." Some of the box office decline can be placed upon the bad weather that the northeast incurred during the holiday. While Melissa McCarthy's R-rated comedy Tammy underperformed her last few films, pulling in a pedestrian "$21.1M three-day and probably around a $32.9M five day." It currently has a 27% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and only received a 'C+' Cinemascore from audiences. The box office should get a boost next weekend when 20th Century Fox's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens. Current predictions put it on pace for a $68M opening. That would easily surpass Rise of the Planet of the Apes' $54.8M opening in 2011.
