Yep! Every Friday back in the seventies coinciding with the TV series on Sunday nights! I was gutted when the comic strip of the first film didn't continue with Beneath in #12 the following week! We got Terror on The Planet of The Apes instead or as my old friend Ian and I used to say the adventures of Jason! We did get Beneath in #35 I remember and it was drawn by Alfredo Alcala instead of George Tuska who did the original in #1-#11!

The film grossed $5 million from Thursday night previews at 3,021 theaters, up 22% from the $4.1 million earned by its predecessor, and $22.1 million on its first day. It went on to debut to $56.3 million, topping the box office, albeit with a 22% drop from Dawn's $72.6 million debut. In its second weekend, the film grossed $20.9 million (a drop of 62.9%, more than the 50.4% fall Dawn saw), finishing 4th at the box office. In its third weekend, the film made $10.5 million (dropping another 49.9%), finishing 6th at the box office. It was lower than the third weeks of both Rise ($16.1 million) and Dawn ($16.8 million).
