US Box Office: July 21 - 23, 2017

There were three big releases this weekend, with a combined total of $98 million at the box office. Christopher Nolan's WWII film, DUNKIRK, topped them all, grossing $50.5 million in its first three days. It was the third best opening for a WWII film, behind PERL HARBOR and the first CAPTAIN AMERICA film. DUNKIRK should make its $150 million production budget, domestically. Internationally, the film is on the same pace, matching its US numbers.

GIRLS TRIP, which cost just $19 million to make, took in $30 million in its first weekend, allowing to the potential to make more than four times its production cost.

The third new release was the heavily hyped science fiction, space movie, VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS. The next "Star Wars" only brought in $17 million, ranking fifth for the weekend. The production budget for the film was $210 million and will fall far short of that with its domestic take, which will be lucky to exceed $50 million.

WONDER WOMAN officially became the #2 movie of the year, passing GUARDIANS 2. At just over $389 million, it has an outside chance at $400 million, domestically. As for DC superhero film, it is #3 overall behind the last two DARK KNIGHT movies.
