Dunkirk Opens with $50 million While Girls Trip Comes in Second
Dunkirk won the weekend by opening with $50.5 million. That’s the first non-franchise film to win the weekend this summer and the first since March of this year. That’s a solid performance for the $150 million film that also saw $55.4 million overseas to bring its total to $105.9 million. The film has received solid reviews so expect it to do well from here.
In second place was Girls Trip. With just a $19 million budget, the film brought in $30.4 million. With an “A+” CinemaScore expect the film to do well.
Spider-Man: Homecoming swung lower with a 50% drop in its third week. The film earned $22 million to bring its domestic total to $251.7 million and stands at $571.7 million worldwide.
War for the Planet of the Apes came in fourth after being in first last week. The film earned $20.4 million to bring its domestic total to $97.8 million and $174.9 million worldwide.
Rounding out the top five was Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets which delivered an estimated $17 million. Adapted from a popular European comic series, the film has a $150 million budget (though it might be as high as $209 million). The film received a “B-” CinemaScore and will have to rely on the foreign box office to do well.
