Hey all. Steve here with your Box Office Top 5. We’ve got 3 new entries this week as we shake it up a bit. The only 2 films returning to the Top 5 are about a spider and some apes. Let’s get to it!

1. Dunkirk

Budget – $150 million

This Weekend – $50.5 million

Domestic Total – $50.5 million

Worldwide Total – $105.9 million

While I wasn’t a fan of Dunkirk, it is sitting at 92% on Rotten Tomatoes and it is the king of the Box Office this week so I guess I have to respect it. Well, I don’t have to and I don’t. I thought it was loud for no good reason and I still hear the ticking going on in my mind. Also, is it a bad sign when you can barely remember a name of a character and have to refer to someone by a name of a character he has played in the past. Anyway, here are some reviews from some of the fellas from the site:

Kyle’s review of Dunkirk

Gilberto’s review of Dunkirk

Ralph’s review of Dunkirk

Claudio’s review of Dunkirk

2. Girls Trip

Budget – $19 million

This Weekend – $30.4 million

Domestic Total – $30.4 million

Worldwide Total – $30.4 million

I missed the screening for this one, but I have heard nothing but great things about it. I’ve heard it’s a laugh a minute so 2nd place seems very deserving. 89% for a comedy is not too shabby at all!

3. Spider-Man: Homecoming

Budget – $175 million

This Weekend – $22 million

Domestic Total – $251.7 million

Worldwide Total – $571.7 million

Crossing over the $250 million threshold domestically is a nice little score for Spidey. It should be crossing the $600 million mark by next weekend. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to get it done!

4. War for the Planet of the Apes

Budget – $150 million

This Weekend – $20.4 million

Domestic Total – $97.8 million

Worldwide Total – $174.9 million

From 1st to 4th is a hell of a fall for a film to make. I still haven’t seen this one, so I couldn’t tell you why there was such a drop-off. Something tells me you all should have seen this and skipped out on Dunkirk!

5. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Budget – $209 million

This Weekend – $17 million

Domestic Total – $17 million

Worldwide Total – $17 million

This film will absolutely find its way onto my list for worst of the year. The visuals were pretty nice, but just nothing else was doing it for me. This bomb of an opening just confirmed what I thought. Here are a couple of reviews from the site:

Gisell’s review of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Wrap-up

That’s all for this weekend everyone. We have a new champ that is not really deserving and we have a massive bomb that absolutely deserved it. Next weekend we will likely see Atomic Blonde in the Top 5 and with any luck no sign of The Emoji Movie. Have a great week!
