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. Related: Angelina Jolie Refutes Controversy Over First They Killed My Father Casting Practices 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: "We are thrilled the audience has spoken and embraced The Emoji Movie." Sony is seeing the film as a major victory, in part because it cost about $50 million to produce, which is a relative bargain for a major studio animated film. But it still couldn't get close to Dunkirk!!! The other new release this weekend, Charlize Theron's Atomic Blonde, took in $18.6 million for Focus Features, a specialty company nestled under Universal Studios. Related: Brad Pitt Confirms He's "Got Nothing To Hide" 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.
