'The Dark Tower' Tops US Weekend Box Office

'The Dark Tower' Tops US Weekend Box Office

Continuing that optimistic line of thought is the film's director Nikolaj Arcel.

The weekend's leader is "The Dark Tower".

LG's upcoming flagship smartphone to flaunt six-inch OLED panel
Further, Android Authority says that the LG V30 smartphone will have a " floating bar " which will be as good as a second screen. LG hasn't used an OLED screen in a phone since the LG G Flex 2 , with the firm opting for LCD panels for all its phones since.

The lackluster weekend box office numbers also didn't fare well for Kathryn Bigelow's Detroit, based on the brutal real-life murders of three young black men at the Algiers Motel during the 1967 riots in MI. The last Knight Warrior, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim, also known as the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together.

The films total gross in the United States now sits at $133 million with $200 million fast approaching. And with the exception of the $14 million Split picked up over Super Bowl weekend, it's also the smallest amount of money a movie has made and still managed to win a weekend this year. The movie got the highest revenue from Russian Federation of $4.1 million out of $8 million from the 19 different markets. The domestic tally for the film now stands at $17.6 million. Those movies earned $10.2 million and $7.7 million respectively.

In third spot was Sony's The Emoji Movie, a computer-animated comedy based on - yes - those expressive little symbols on cell phones. We don't see him actually die, right? The film stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen, and marks Taylor Sheridan's directorial debut.

This first weekend of August certainly is different from previous years that put an exclamation point on the season with titles that set record-breaking openings like 2014's "Guardians of the Galaxy ($US94.3 million) or last summer's "Suicide Squad" ($US133.6 million)".
