The boys of DUNKIRK won the cinematic war this weekend at the domestic box office, but, gentlemen that they are, left plenty of room in the movie world for those who preferred a GIRLS’ TRIP to a gory battle.
For those looking for a hero in the hood, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING offered a pleasant summer break while those still in fighting form found the WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES entertaining in a war-of-a-totally-different kind of way. Finally, VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS claimed thousands of earthbound moviegoers.
The box-office battle brought out the fighting spirit in our complex characters this weekend, a girl-fueled trip inspired many tagalongs, a youthful hero was once again honored and a city of a thousand charmed millions.
