The Dark Tower Nudges Past Dunkirk with $19.5 Million Debut

In a rather underwhelming weekend at the box office for newcomers, author Stephen King's latest book adaptation into film, The Dark Tower ($19.5 million), managed to squeeze past Dunkirk ($17.6 million).  For film with a reported $60 million budget, The Dark Tower, was expected to earn a bit more... which was probably due to it's negative reviews (18% Tomatometer).

Halle Berry's Kidnap came in 5th place with $10.2 million, which bested Detroit's $7.3 million 8th place finish.  This is a huge disappointment for Detroit as it is the best reviewed movie (88% Tomatometer) going into wide release this weekend and expected to get some awards season buzz.
