Dunkirk Performs Well in UK Box Offices

Posted on August 12, 2017 at 6:15 pm

War narrative Dunkirk has continued to sell well in UK box offices. It only fell 18% in its second week and now, in its third week, it took more money over the weekend than any film aside from Beauty and the Beast. It is a much stronger performer than director Christopher Nolan’s previous films in their third frames. Dunkirk took £4.62m in its third weekend and has so far totalled £38.2m.

Dunkirk has done very well compared to rivals The Emoji Movie and Valerian, both of which have performed poorly in the UK box office so far. The Emoji Movie has been called the worst family film of 2017 so far. Valerian has an enormous budget but looks like it might be a flop, with very few critics predicting it will pick up. Luc Besson’s films have always had a kind of eccentric charm but this one might not quite make it.
