Dunkirk finally concedes top spot on the UK cinema charts but only by a narrow margin as The Hitman’s Bodyguard enters taking £1,982,951 against Dunkirk’s £1,938,125.

The Dark Tower which is based on the Stephen King story comes in at a disappointing fifth taking only £910,529. It’s had mixed reviews having already released in the US a few weeks back. Elsewhere the only other new entry is the drama Everything, Everything that comes in at nine with box office takings of £453,401. Spider-Man: Homecoming looks to be on its way out having performed exceptionally well with gross to date figures of £29,144,158.

In the battle of the studios / distributors this week sees big hitters Warner Bros, Sony Pictures & Universal all having three films each in the top ten.
