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 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:
|2||—||The Emoji Movie||$25.7-million||New|
|6||4||War for the Planet of the Apes||$10.4-million||3|
|7||6||Despicable Me 3||$7.7-million||5|
|8||5||Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets||$6.8-million||2|
