#BOXOFFICE: “DUNKIRK” CONTINUES LEGACY OF DOMINATION FOR CHRISTOPHER NOLAN
Taking the top of the Box Office in its debut is Christopher Nolan‘s eagerly-awaited new Film DUNKIRK, earning $51 million from 3,720 theatres across North America for Warner Bros.

Debuting in second with $29.2 million is Universal Pictures’ GIRLS TRIP, which gets both stellar reviews, coming in at 89% on the Tomatometer and a rare A+ CinemaScore also. The Malcolm D. Lee Comedy plays in 2,195 theatres domestically.
SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is in third with $20 million for Sony Pictures in its third week out.
