‘The Emoji Movie’ Finishes Second In Weekend Debut Despite Abysmal Reviews

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “The Emoji Movie” has a happy face after overcoming bad reviews to debut in second place at the weekend box office, but not the big grin “Dunkirk” has after claiming the top spot for two weeks in a row.

The Christopher Nolan World War II drama added another $26.6 million to its haul over the weekend, bringing its domestic ticket total over $101 million in just two weeks. The riotous R-rated comedy “Girls Trip” also maintained its momentum in its second week of release.

“Atomic Blonde,” featuring Charlize Theron as a lethal spy, opened in fourth place.
