Dunkirk finishes first at box office, Emoji Movie tops Atomic Blonde: July 28-30


That sums up how I feel about The Emoji Movie finishing ahead of the most solid action film of the summer, Atomic Blonde. I guess millennials and our youth swoon over poop emojis, after all.

There’s no surprise Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk finished first, which is well-deserved for the breathtaking film.

Let’s take a peep at the top 10 for this past weekend’s box office, according to Box Office Mojo.

  1. Dunkirk $28,130,000
  2. The Emoji MovieĀ $25,650,000
  3. Girls Trip $20,085,540
  4. Atomic Blonde $18,554,000
  5. Spider-Man: Homecoming $13,450,000
  6. War for the Planet of the Apes $10,375,000
  7. Despicable Me 3 $7,725,895
  8. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets $6,800,000
  9. Baby Driver $4,050,000
  10. Wonder Woman $3,540,000

Notes: If nothing else, The Emoji Movie is on-pace to make back its production budget of $50 million. The film’s quality? It scored a 10 on Metacritic … I think it’s safe to say Wonder Woman has the strongest legs during its nine-week run at the box office, bringing its worldwide total to $786 million … Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver staying in the top 10 is a win for anyone who loved that film, as I did … Unfortunately, Valerian continues to bomb at the box office, yet I’m still intrigued by the film. I’ll give it a watch …
