‘The Emoji Movie’ vs ‘Atomic Blonde’ at the box office

There are a lot of emotions heading into the weekend, and when they’re unleashed? Well, they could be atomic. What movie will win the hearts of audiences? Here’s our prediction:


While on paper The Emoji Movie, a film based on emojis sounds like an absolutely horrible idea, that hasn’t stopped Sony Pictures from releasing a film based on them. Unfortunately for parents, what will be a must see film for kids this weekend is currently sitting at 0% at Rotten Tomatoes. Yes, Z-E-R-O. Good luck sitting through this one, folks. I’ll feel for everyone who helps make The Emoji Movie number one at the box office. Look for it to debut there with $32 million.

Also new this weekend is Charlize Theron’s Atomic Blonde. There’s lots of buzz for this action film, based on a graphic novel by Antony Johnston, thanks to the enticing trailers and Theron’s badass reputation, based on her outstanding performance in 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road. With Wonder Woman finally dying down at the box office, Atomic Blonde should be a must-see for audiences looking for a female-driven action adventure. Look for a third place debut with $26 million.

As for the rest of the top five, Dunkirk will be in second place with $30 million. Girls Trip will be in fourth with $17 million, while Spider-Man: Homecoming will close things out in fifth place with $11.5 million.

So, to recap, here are our predictions:

1) The Emoji Movie – $32 million
2) Dunkirk – $30 million
3) Atomic Blonde – $26 million
4) Girls Trip – $17 million
5) Spider-Man: Homecoming – $11.5 million
