'Dunkirk' Survives 'The Emoji Movie' to Stay Number 1 at Box Office

Dunkirk is poised for another victory on the box office battlefield.

Christopher Nolan's WW2 drama "Dunkirk" is projected to bring in another $28.3 million to top the North American box office for the second weekend.

"We have been in a major struggle to compare favorably with last year's summer season week after week and with yet another "down" weekend on the books, the summer deficit just added another percentage point in the wrong direction", said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore, who pointed out that this weekend's crop could not compete with 2016's Jason Bourne and Bad Moms.

"The Emoji Movie" came in second with $25.7 million, meeting analyst projections of $25 million to $30 million and surpassing the studio's expectations of $20 million. Dunkirk is well ahead of Nolan's previous outing, Interstellar, through 10 days in theaters.

Coming in second this weekend is The Emoji Movie. Hopefully it is able to cross the $300 million mark.

Universal's Girls Trip holds strong in its sophomore weekend, parlaying excellent word of mouth (A+ CinemaScore) into a decline of just 36 percent.

The weekend's other newcomer, the Charlize Theron-starring spy thriller Atomic Blonde, will land in the No. 4 spot with an estimated $18.6 million, trailing the holdover Girls Trip and its estimated $20.1 million. It raised its USA total to $65.5 million, far surpassing the $19 million production budget. Blonde had some rough sledding as it opened, as it faced some high-profile competition across the board. Critics liked it, with 74 percent giving positive reviews.

Based on the graphic novel The Coldest City, Atomic Blonde stars Theron as a lethal MI6 agent and also features James McAvoy, John Goodman, Eddie Marsan, and Sofia Boutella. The trilogy finale raised its Stateside total to $118.6 million. Illuminations, newest animated hit earned $7.7 million to increase its domestic haul to $230.4 million.

Beloved: According to Variety, the 70mm military evacuation flick - starring Kenneth Branagh (M), Tom Hardy, and Harry Styles - only dropped 44 percent from its opening weekend. The sci-fi epic is now up to $30.6 million domestically. Baby Driver fell two spots to ninth but still brought in $4.1 million to boost its five-week domestic take to $92 million.

Capping off the top 10 as it closes out its impressive run is Wonder Woman.
