Charts and That

Another week has passed and another spate of releases have tried to seize the top spot. Starting with movies, Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk has remained the No.1 at the box office this weekend, according to Entertainment Weekly. That is ahead of the God-awful and universally critically panned The Emoji Movie.

The Emoji Movie follows the story of an emoji who wants to be more than the face he is. The story (from what we’ve heard) is ridiculous, awfully written and woefully unfunny. I’ll be honest? I am unsurprised.

Here are this week’s estimates:

  1. Dunkirk — $28.1 million
  2. The Emoji Movie — $25.7 million
  3. Girls Trip — $20.1 million
  4. Atomic Blonde — $18.6 million
  5. Spider-Man: Homecoming — $13.5 million
  6. War for the Planet of the Apes — $10.4 million
  7. Despicable Me 3 — $7.7 million
  8. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets — $ 6.8 million
  9. Baby Driver — $4.1 million
  10. Wonder Woman — $3.5 million

Again, good to see Wonder Woman sticking it out a few weeks after release.

Now to games where not much has changed either. Crash Bandicoot the N. Sane Trilogy is still soaring above all the other releases and has beaten Splatoon 2 once again for the top spot. Bethesda is enjoying a nice resurgence as Fallout 4, Doom and Dishonored 2 all make their way to 4th, 5th, and 6th respectively on this week’s Top 10.

Here is the full list for the UK this week:

  1. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  2. Splatoon 2
  3. Grand Theft Auto V
  4. Fallout 4
  5. Doom
  6. Dishonored 2
  7. Miitopia
  8. Rugby League Live 4
  9. FIFA 17
  10. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Tune in next week, where hopefully something will have changed, and The Emoji Movie will have been swallowed back into the depths of corporate hell, where executives still think everyone under 25 says ‘radical’.

Ugh.
