'Dunkirk' triumphs at weekend box office while 'Valerian' lands in 5th place

'Dunkirk' triumphs at weekend box office while 'Valerian' lands in 5th place

Christopher Nolan's World War II epic brought in an estimated $50.5 million to easily top the charts, according to Warner Bros., while the raucous comedy "Girls Trip" broke the R-rated comedy slump of 2017 with $30.4 million to take second place. Both original and well-reviewed films smashed expectations and enticed diverse audiences to the theaters, even though cumulatively summer remains down from previous year.

The film opened to enthusiastic reviews, and stronger box office numbers than were initially expected.

The the top worldwide territory for "Dunkirk", with an estimated $12.4 million on 1,313 screens. War for the Planet of the Apes, conversely, lost a lot of its older audience to Dunkirk this weekend and probably owes a portion of its drop to having a story that goes into very bleak places - not exactly what some would be up for as far as "Summer fun" is concerned. Girls Trip also did well considering that adult-oriented comedies haven't done all that well at the box office this Summer.

"Dunkirk" also brought in an outstanding 55.4 million USA dollars from 46 overseas markets and nabbing the top spot everywhere for a global combined total of 105.9 million US dollars, according to studio figures collected by comScore. "One of the great things about this comedy is that it's really amusing". Valerian flopping owes itself to a number of factors, such as releasing in such a competitive window (against Spider-Man: Homecoming, War for the Planet of the Apes, and Dunkirk) when it would have been better suited for a relatively-empty August and being based on source material that American audiences are largely unfamiliar with. It seems Girls Trip will have to make nearly all of its money here in the States, since it is only slated for release in two global territories thus far, the United Kingdom and Ireland, both arriving on July 26.

The film collected Dollars 50.5 million on its opening day at the U.S. box office and is slated to gross USD 136-USD 142 million, according to a Forbes report.

Valerian was massively expensive, with an estimated $180 million budget. Earning more than $50 million over the course of the weekend, the movie took in $11.7 million exclusively from IMAX screens. The opening that it had falls about $1.7M short of 2015's so-bad-it's-good space opera Jupiter Ascending, and on a much larger budget than that film.

Looking ahead to next weekend, only two movies arrive in wide release, Focus Features' action-thriller Atomic Blonde and Sony's The Emjoi Movie. Take a look at the top 10 estimates for the weekend of July 21, and check back on Tuesday for next week's round of predictions.
