RTH at Box Office Theory is saying $12.2m for Dunkirk and $9.5m for Emoji on Saturday. That would be over 50% increase for Dunkirk, which puts a $29+ million weekend in play.
But still very early. I would say it's probably a safe bet for $11.5m Saturday, which is still a great 43.75% increase from Friday. That would put it on pace for a $28+ million weekend. Good numbers all around.
Here is a good showdown I requested at Box Office Mojo. Main thing to watch is those daily percentages with Dunkirk compared to Star Trek Beyond and Rogue Nation. Interstellar is a tough comparison due to the release date in November, but the overall opening and total gross are good comparisons (50ish opening, 190ish total).
"Mexico grossed an estimated $444K on 1,146 screens, ranking second only behind Fox’s debut title War for the Planet of the Apes. The Imax results have tripled the market average. The total gross so far is $754K"
Here in Mexico can make $2M OW, the IMAX performance is great, i'm seeing it on wednesday in IMAX and PS are strong.
What does "PS" mean?

Look at the audience score in Atomic Blonde. 68% and it's been out for a day... and this shouldn't be a 'divisive' film for the audience. It's an action-packed film with Charlize Theron and James McAvoy.

Some of the members here were so frustrated when Big Hero 6 won the opening weekend over Interstellar, but at the end of the day Interstellar outperformed Big Hero 6 on its global gross. It did better than a 3D family film from Marvel and Disney with a much better tomatometer and cinemascore and half its runtime, and people here just wasted their times, being upset over nothing.£
>massive Nolan fan and How to Train Your Dragon fan
>same movie that beats Interstellar in week 1 beats Dragons for the Oscar
Haven't seen Big Hero 6 and no plans to...but I still have a massive grudge against it

If those films had the Disney logo stamped on them, they would have won.
