Of the movies that opened this weekend, "Dunkirk" had the most predictable opening. $50.5M is kind of low as far as a Chris Nolan movie goes, but this whole season has been a bit all over the map, so... meh.
"Girls Trip" was a replacement movie for Crystal and managed to earn $31.2M over the weekend. I'll be happy when we don't have to worry about this kind of crap anymore.
Remember that time I joked about "Valerian" not being in a situation like "John Carter"... and then it was worse. With a budget of $177.2M, "Valerian" managed to make back ~9.6% of its budget. Neat!
|MOVIE TITLE||RELEASE DATE||OWNER||PRICE||THEATERS|
|Atomic Blonde||July 28, 2017||Kristina V.||$5||3,200|
|The Emoji Movie||July 28, 2017||Clayton B.||$10||2,500|
Remember that time someone wanted "Atomic Blond" and everyone went absolutely ape-shit? Me too. Turns out way back in the day, Kristina chose a replacement movie called "The Coldest City". That movie turned out to be the code-name for... wait for it... try guessing while you wait... yup, "Atomic Blond". I'm letting her keep it. Eff the system! $27M.
Stop it, Sony! Just stop it! "The Emoji Movie" is coming out. This is the cherry on top of a ridiculous summer. $48M. It will probably make more, but I can't in good conscience estimate that.
