Dunkirk fought off newcomers The Emoji Movie and Atomic Blonde to retain the #1 spot on the box office top 10 chart. Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk edged past the $100 million mark over its second weekend in release, snagging a $28 million second weekend while Sony’s animated The Emoji Movie somehow managed a $25 million opening. Critics have called The Emoji Movie a soul-sucking film, and it currently sits at just 8% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Moviegoers have been kinder, awarding it a ‘B’ according to Cinemascore.
Atomic Blonde, the R-rated action thriller starring Charlize Theron, opened on the lower end of expectations at $18.5 million domestically which was only good enough for a third place finish. Atomic Blonde won’t be holding onto that spot for long as next weekend finds The Dark Tower, starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba, and Detroit from director Kathryn Bigelow opening/expanding in theaters.
