Weekend Box Office: ‘Dunkirk’ Battles to Top Spot, ‘Valerian’ Bombs

Weekend Box Office

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk (Warner Bros.) and Universal’s Girls Trip are opening above expectations at the domestic box office, while Luc Besson’s massively expensive sci-fi opus Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets looks like a huge flop.

A Final Trailer for ‘Valerian and the City of 1000 Planets’ has Arrived

Luc Besson’s Sci-Fi Epic

STX Entertainment has released the third and final trailer for writer-director Luc Besson’s $210 million sci-fi epic Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets starring Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne.

Based on the classic French comic series by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres, Besson’s adaptation appears to be a visual treat and is practically overflowing with color and spectacle. It really does look unlike anything else hitting theaters this summer with all that CGI alien creatures and I’m just hoping the story will live up to that creative ambition.
