Dunkirk, Girls Trip top dogs at the box office: July 21-23

The talk of Wonder Woman‘s record-breaking box office run has been documented all summer long, but the top two films this past weekend really raised some eyebrows.

Let’s take a look at the top 10, according to Box Office Mojo.

  1. Dunkirk $50,500,000 
  2. Girls Trip $30,370,720 
  3. Spider-Man: Homecoming $22,010,000 
  4. War for the Planet of the Apes $20,400,000 
  5. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets $17,020,000 
  6. Despicable Me 3 $12,714,475 
  7. Baby Driver $6,000,000 
  8. The Big Sick $5,000,000 
  9. Wonder Woman $4,630,000 
  10. Wish Upon $2,477,816
