WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Dark Tower topped the chart with 19.5MM against a 60MM budget, at the low end of expectations andulikely to have legs, based on savage reviews and a "B" Cinemascore. Bad news for both McConnaughey (whose had three misfires now) and Idris Elba (still looking for that yuge breakout role). Dunkirk placed with 17.6MM on a leggy 34 percent drop. The Emoji Movie showed with 12.4MM on a 50 percent drop (not as big as last weekend's 62 percent) and close to recouping its production cost. Girls Trip, however, continues leggy in fourth with 11.4MM on a 42 percent drop and 85.4MM total domestic against a 19MM budget. The debut of Kidnap rounded out the Top Five with10.2MM, which isn't bad for a filthat sat on the shelf of bankrupt Relativity and was sold to Aviron for 3MM. Below the fold, the wide expansion of Detroit landed in eighth place with 7.3MM against a 34MM budget -- an early realelase of Oscar bait that did not work as well as Dunkirk.
