Dark Tower tops tired box office

Dark Tower tops tired box office

All this on the calendar spot that last year's "Suicide Squad" bucked conventional release date wisdom with a record-breaking $133.7 million domestic opening.

The film from director Nikolaj Arcel received poor reviews (18 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), a lackluster Cinemascore (B), little good in the way of positive word of mouth, which all led to an anemic $19.5 million in its opening weekend.

Internationally, the $60 million-budgeted fantasy grossed a further $8 million from 19 countries, meaning it has recouped nearly half of its budget with the majority of global markets still to come, including the United Kingdom on August 18th. Even with The Dark Tower being another addition to the dud pile of Stephen King movies, at least the author's cinematic legacy is cemented by these 10 undeniable classics.

However, the body of the phone will be much smaller than the LG V20 , even with the bigger screen, due to having smaller bezels . According to Android Authority , LG is planning on boosting the multimedia experience on the V30 smartphone yet again.

Annapurna's "Detroit", the latest film from Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, met even more resistance, grossing a mere 7.25 million Dollars for the weekend. "There's a lot of summer box office left and its global rollout is just starting to take off". Reception for the movie is poor as fans of the book are unhappy with the changes.

Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk" came in second place with $US17.6 million, after topping the box office the last two weekends.

Admitting that this is "uncharted territory" in terms of connecting film and TV in one franchise, "the success of the film has no correlation to whether the show will be successful or not, it has to stand on its own", Wiczyk said, noting that the performance of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. performance is not tied to how The Avengers movies do. The movie got the highest revenue from Russian Federation of $4.1 million out of $8 million from the 19 different markets. The Emoji Movie fell to third, while Halle Berry's Kidnap debuted in fifth. Those movies earned $10.2 million and $7.7 million respectively.
