When it comes to epic scripting, producing and directing movies that are sure to be box-office successes, director Christopher Nolan has the manuscript down to the last letter. His reputation surely precedes him with movies such as The Prestige, Inceptionand The Dark Knight trilogy, all credited to his amazing directing prowess
Now his latest movie, Dunkirk, is set to join the others among the movies that have crossed the half-billion dollar mark at the worldwide box office.
The war movie easily won its opening box office weekend when it debuted back in July, and then it continued to show strength in the subsequent weeks through the rest of the summer. The film has also become a critical darling in addition to its financial success, earning a remarkable 93% “Certified Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes as well.
Christopher Nolan’s WWII epic told an original story (albeit one inspired by real events), free from recognizable historical names and had the audacity to compete with summer blockbuster and superhero movies like Wonder Woman and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
It is also interesting to note that Dunkirk had no clear-cut star lead actor/actress unlike the other movies that were released during the summer. So Dunkirk’s success is one that makes Christopher Nolan’s ability to turn any project to gold all the sweeter.
There is still time left before Dunkirk‘s official close at the box-office, so we will have to wait to see what the movie will end up grossing. While we wait, be sure to check out our other news to see what movies like Wonder Woman, Spiderman: Homecoming and IT are grossing.
