Sadly, The Emoji Movie is faring better at the box office than it is with the critics. It came in just behind Dunkirk over the weekend, earning $24.5 million. That brings its domestic total so far to $31.5 million. Not stellar, but better than expected for a movie of this horribleness.
It could have something to do with the fact that there aren’t many kids movies out right now. Spider-Man: Homecoming and Despicable Me 3 are still in theaters, but both have been out for a while now, which might make them less appealing.
