Box Office Weekend: The Dark Tower Narrowly Beats Dunkirk

It's not a very eventful weekend as many new release movies did not earn that much money at the Box Office. August is a lot quieter this year compared to last year when Suicide Squad came out. The Dark Tower movie is underperforming thanks to poor word of mouth.

As reported by Box Office Mojo, this is the lowest grossing weekend for Summer 2017. The Dark Tower managed to become number one with a small opening of $19.5 million. This is quite low for a movie that was made for $60 million. Reception for the movie is poor as fans of the book are unhappy with the changes. They tried to cram so much information into a short 95 minute long movie.

In its third weekend, Dunkirk was in second place earning $17.6 million. The domestic tally for the film now stands at $17.6 million. From a worldwide standpoint, the movie has so far earned over $314.2 million. The movie is yet to open in Italy, China and Japan so it can earn even more money soon.

The Emoji Movie saw a huge drop this weekend earning only $12.35 million. It's unlikely to earn that much money as it's one of the worst reviewed movies of 2017. Some other new releases included Halle Berry's Kidnap and Kathryn Bigelow's Detroit. Those movies earned $10.2 million and $7.7 million respectively.

Comic book movies still continue to do well at the Box Office. Wonder Woman has earned $399 million at the North American Box Office and is very close to earning over $400 million. Spider-Man: Homecoming is doing well too earning $295 million. By the end of next week, it should cross over the $300 million. The movie is doing way better than both The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
