Second Weekend Atop Box Office For Dunkirk

WINNIPEG, MB. — Dunkirk took the top box office spot for the second weekend in a row.

The Christopher Nolan epic grossed another $28.1-million.

Dunkirk has raked in over $234.1-million worldwide with nearly $103-million of that from North America.

It cost about $100-million to produce.

Not such a stinker

Critics weren’t allowed to watch The Emoji Movie before it opened.

That’s usually a sign the studio has zero confidence in the picture and a cheap attempt by the producers to recover their budget.

It appears it worked.

The Emoji Movie was critically panned but still raked in $25.7-million.

That put the animated movie in second place.

It will take another weekend to determine if word of mouth will save it, but we’re still slapping a big ol’ poop emoji on this one.

Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde opened below expectations.

The Charlize Theron action film was set to rake in $20-million this weekend.

It opened in fourth place with $18.6-million behind Girls Trip with $20.1-million.

Focus Features is modest with the success of Atomic Blonde.

They believe the film has legs despite a soft opening weekend.

The top 10 box office numbers from the weekend follow below:
