PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Dunkirk made it two in a row over the weekend, one that featured modest returns at multiplexes.
Director Christopher Nolan’s World War II drama finished in first place at the box office for a second straight time, earning an estimated $28 million.
That was enough to keep it ahead of the weekend’s two new releases, but not by much.
The new animated comedy, The Emoji Movie, was the close runner-up with $26 million.
The holdover comedy, Girls Trip, was third with a total of $20 million.
And the debuting Charlize Theron-starring action thriller, Atomic Blonde, finished fourth with $19 million.
Overall, industry-wide totals were a good deal short of those of last weekend, as well as those of the counterpart weekend last year.
