Dunkirk tops UK box office chart
Director Christopher Nolan’s wartime drama Dunkirk has soared to the top of the UK box office charts on the film’s opening weekend.
The film, which follows the evacuation of British forces from the beaches of Dunkirk, earned an estimated £9.5 million across 637 UK cinemas.
That figure includes £1.3m taken at Imax venues after Nolan suggested the format would offer fans the best possible viewing experience.
The film stars Tom Hardy, Sir Mark Rylance, Sir Kenneth Branagh and Cillian Murphy.
