(Newser) Dunkirk has topped the competition once more at the box office, beating newcomers The Emoji Movie and Atomic Blonde, the AP reports. Studio estimates on Sunday say Christopher Nolan's WWII film dropped 44% from its first weekend and brought in $28.1 million to take first place. Right behind was The Emoji Movie, which opened to $25.7 million despite almost comically bad reviews.

The ride continues to be smooth for the well-reviewed comedy Girls Trip, which fell a minuscule 36% from its opening weekend and netted an additional $20.1 million to take third place. The Charlize Theron action pic Atomic Blonde debuted in fourth place with $18.6 million. Rounding out the top five was Spider-Man: Homecoming with $13.5 million in its fourth weekend.
