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:

"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.

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.
