‘Dunkirk’ wins weekend box office, ‘Girls Trip’ surprises

Dunkirk” won at the box office and “Girls Trip” surprised.

Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic beat expectations this weekend, bringing in estimated $50.5 million in North America. Overall, the film brought in $105.9 million worldwide.

Box office analysts pegged the Warner Bros. film starring Tom Hardy and Mark Rylance at roughly a $40 million U.S. opening, but a wave of rave reviews appeared to push the film higher.

Nolan’s choice to show the film in the high resolution 70mm might have helped build buzz, making it a movie that audiences felt they had to see in theaters.
“‘Dunkirk’ became a must see cinematic event with its epic presentations,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore (SCOR). “That may have provided a nice tailwind for the film.”
While “Dunkirk” took home the top spot at the box office this weekend, Universal’s comedy “Girls Trip” is the bigger surprise.
