Box Office Results (24/07/17)

 

box office results

As promised, this weekend was a BIG MONEY WEEKEND with Dunkirk knocking it out of the park. It wasn’t all good news, however, Valerian stumbled out of the gate and failed to make a mark.

Let’s get down to it.

Click here for a refresher.

Dunkirk
Synopsis: Christopher Nolan’s back!

Budget: $150 million
Rotten Tomatoes: 92%
Current Box Office: $107.4 million
Domestic Box Office: $50.5 million
Weekend Box Office: $50.5 million.
Our Prediction: $60 million

Comments: Lower than I predicted, which suggests the world war disadvantage played a part, but still a healthy $50.5 million for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. Second weekend is important for an audience that allegedly skewered older according to Box Office Mojo.

Slightly more than Interstellar’s $47 million, which boasted a starrier cast.

Girls Trip
Synopsis: Who is going to watch this?

Budget: $27.7 million
Rotten Tomatoes: 88%
Current Box Office: $30.3 million
Domestic Box Office: $30.3 million
Weekend Box Office: $30.3 million
Our Prediction: $29 million

Comments: Girls Trip eclipsed its budget already with a $30 million opening, $7 million more than 2016’s Bad Moms which grossed over $100 million domestically. Great opening weekend for Girls Trip.

War for the Planet of the Apes
Synopsis: Another ape movie I won’t see.

Budget: $150 million
Rotten Tomatoes: 94%
Current Box Office: $174.7 million
Domestic Box Office: $97.7 million
Weekend Box Office: $20.4 million
Our Prediction: $24 million

Comments: War flopped big time this weekend, losing 60% of its audience after its opening. War is likely to be the worst performer in the franchise by far. $20.4 million.

Elsewhere: Spider-Man: Homecoming added $22 million as expected. Valerian should debuted to a disappointing $17 million.

Next Weekend: Atomic Blonde & The Emoji Movie.

Last Year: Star Trek Beyond opened to a good-but-disappointing $59.3 million.

  1. since dunkirk skewers older, next week could do significantly worse.

    nolan really is the next spielberg in terms of transcending the usual box office appeal though.
