July 23, 2017 By Seth Kelley LOS ANGELES ( – “Dunkirk” and “Girls Trip” are opening above expectations at the domestic box office, while “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” looks like a huge flop.

July 13, 2017 By Rollo Ross LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Introducing a brand new multi-million dollar intergalactic adventure film based on a French comic book strip during a summer box office dominated by superheroes and sequels may be considered a big risk to take by an independent filmmaker. But French director Luc Besson was so confident in his vision for adapting the “Valerian and Laureline” sci-fi comics into a film, he took his script and sketches to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival three years ago with the hopes of…
