Dunkirk’ Claims Box Office Victory With $50.5 Million Opening


Riding strong word of mouth and rave reviews, Warner Bros.’ “Dunkirk” took the top spot at the box office this weekend with $50.5 million, blowing by the $30-40 million pre-weekend projections set by independent trackers.

By comparison, director Christopher Nolan’s previous film, “Interstellar,” made $49.5 million over a five-day opening in November 2014, and went on to nearly post a 4x multiple with a $188 million domestic total. IMAX, which supplied the cameras for the project, played a major factor in pushing the film past projection windows. On 402 IMAX screens, “Dunkirk” made $11.7 million for a per screen average of $29,129 and 23 percent of the film’s opening haul. CinemaScore demographics were 60 percent male and 40 percent female, with 76 percent of audiences above the age of 25. “Dunkirk” was received well by all demos, with an A- on CinemaScore and a 92 percent “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
