"Dunkirk" Slated For $40 Million Opening
Early industry tracking figures have slated Christopher Nolan's WW2 evacuation film "Dunkirk" to open to around the $30-40 million mark at the U.S. domestic box-office.
Slated for a July 21st release opposite "Girls Trip" and "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets," the film is opening two weekends after "Spider-Man: Homecoming" which is expected to open to up to $100 million, and one weekend after "War for the Planet of the Apes" which is expected to debut at around $65 million.
A $40 million opening would be Nolan's lowest opening in wide release since "The Prestige" opened to $14.8 million in 2006. Nolan's other non-Batman original films since that time have included "Inception" which opened to $62.8 million, and "Interstellar" which opened to $47.5 million.
No reviews or post-screening social media reaction to "Dunkirk" have so far hit. The film will appear in 125 separate 70MM theaters, making it the widest release in the format in 25 years.
I think to have both movies on the same day, will probably no doubt have an effect on the box office results for one or possibly both of the films.

Sad to hear another great actor is no longer with us, wow what an age 89-year-old. R.I.P.
I use to like the old Mission Impossible television series, that ran from 1966-1973.
Classic stuff from Martin Landau in that show.

"X-Men" Gets An Even Younger Jean Grey
Eight-year-old actress Summer Fontana ("The Originals") has apparently scored the role of a very young Jean Grey in Simon Kinberg's currently in production "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" At 20th Century Fox.
Sophie Turner ("Game of Thrones") is reprising her role of the young adult version of Grey which she first played in last year's "X-Men: Apocalypse". However, it sounds like the 1990s film will be sporting a flashback to Grey's childhood and potentially a look at the moment Jean first showed her powers.
The casting first appeared on the film's IMDb page, with the actress recently sharing a tweet from Montreal where filming is underway.
Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tye Sheridan, and Alexandra Shipp all return for the film which opens November next year.
Great casting. Summer was fantastic in The Originals, she did creepy and powerful very well. And she's already got the red hair.
