Dunkirk Wins The Box Office This Week As The Emoji Movie Struggles In Opening Weekend

Another weekend, another new day at the box office!

Dunkirk is the biggest winner this week, thanks to a $28.1 million haul this week and a cumulative $102.8 million domestic pull through its second week on Sunday — and another $45.6 million overseas from 62 more markets.

The war movie has done particularly well in the United Kingdom, with a tally of $35.4 million this weekend — already surpassing the lifetime U.K. cume of director Christopher Nolan‘s last movie, Interstellar.

Meanwhile, The Emoji Movie — which had been getting brutally bad reviews from critics — didn’t do so hot in theaters but actually outshot some of its projections, taking in $25.7 million.

Sony president of worldwide marketing and distribution Josh Greenstein seemed happy about The Emoji Movie‘s weekend, saying:

The $18.6 million showing — plus another $5.9 million from overseas — is actually a very solid showing for Atomic Blonde, which is based on the graphic novel The Coldest City and took a lot of chances in its production.

Focus Features distribution president Lisa Bunnell said of the film:

“This film takes a lot of chances. David takes action to another level, and Charlize Theron an unbelievable job being able to kick ass just likes the guys. This is a stylized, provocative, sexual and brazen film, which is why Focus got involved.”

Meanwhile, as far as older releases go, Girls Trip continues to do VERY well, taking in $20.1 million in its second outing for a domestic total of $65.1 million — by far the most successful live-action comedy move to date this year.
