6th September 2017
In a summer of superheroes, Apes and Pirates it was a was film which out grossed everything with few stars but a visionary director who is a master of storytelling.
Christopher Nolan has become one of the most prolific directors in modern cinema and he took the moving story of Dunkirk to the top over the summer to the tune of £53 million.
It was by far the top film of the summer season with the closest competitor at number 2 Spider-Man Homecoming which brought home just why of £30 million.
Next up is the highest grossing film ever from a female director in the shape of Wonder Woman which grossed £22 million while the apes rules at number 4 with War For The Planet of The Apes grossing £20 million.
IN recent years a new Pirates of the Caribbean film would have meant big money but Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge came in at 5 with under £20 million, far less than previous entries.
Looking further down the top films of the summer in the UK Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 was the sixth top film while Alien: Covenant was the seventh and Baby Driver the eight.
Rounding out the top 10 is The Emoji Movie at nine and finally Cars 3 at number ten, another film which is suffering from series fatigue and has done far worse than the others in the series.
Looking forward to the holiday season ahead we can expect top film from IT to Kingsman The Golden Circle, Blade Runner 2049 to Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League to Star Wars: The LAst Jedi.

Directed by Guy Ritchie King Arthur Legend of the Sword makes its UK debut at the top of the box office, but its an unconvincing start to its box office run.
Taking £2.5 million from the weekend the film which had a massive budget and is set to start a new series of films was expected to smash its way into the box office from studio Warner Bros.
For the director this is below the debut of his top grossing films the Sherlock Holmes movies starring Robert Downey Jnr. which both debuted in the £3 million mark.
Falling into second place is Alien: Covenant which only just missed out on spending a second week at the top with a weekend gross of £2.1 million.
This brings the films total gross to £10 million, Prometheus at this point in its run was doing very similar business so expect this to end its run with a similar £20 million+.
Also new this week is Snatched starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn at number 4 with a debut of £842,000 and Colossal starring Anne Hathaway at number 9 with £150,000.
