DUNKIRK added over 250+ theaters this weekend and salvaged another $17.6M--down just -34%--$133M total.
133M + 173M = 306M

Will it beat Captain America: The First Avenger's domestic and worldwide numbers?

That's great.

It already is the highest grossing non-American WWII film, I believe?

The next highest-grossing is The Imitation Game, according to Box Office Mojo: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/genres/cha ... ldwar2.htm

But that list focuses only on domestic gross, so I'm not sure about films that did gangbusters in territories like China but made nothing in the US (like The Great Wall with Mr. Damon, for example).

Very good numbers. WB being more conservative with the Sunday estimate this week at 27% drop compared to last Sunday's 21% estimate, so that's a good strategy. Hopefully the regional holiday in Canada on Monday will help the film at least match the weekend estimate and maybe even increase with actuals this week.

I think if the film can reach $185m domestic, it will also reach at least $450m worldwide. Still has openings to come in China, Japan, Greece, and Italy. Those markets should help drive down the current ratio of 42.5% domestic versus the worldwide total. Also this weekend, the domestic gross was 41.3% of the worldwide gross ($17.6m/$42.6m) so the current overseas markets are already helping to drive down the domestic share of the worldwide total.

Dunkirk is guaranteed to make at least $475 million worldwide at this point.

A total of $508 million worldwide is my final prediction.

Is that worldwide of 315 total as of today (based on estimates)?

For the curious, it was at 56%/43% on July 28, then 45%/54% on August 2:

And now today, 42%/57%.

With the upcoming releases in those four countries, it'll go down/up into the high-30%s/low-60%s.
