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.

The last in the trilogy of Planet of The Apes prequel movies opens at the top of the Uk box office this week knocking Spider-Man Homecoming off after just a single week.
War For The Planet of The Apes which stars Woody Harrelson and Any Serkis hits the top with a weekend gross of £7.1 million, a very good gross for a critically praised film.
The trilogy of films has been constant on its debut and this does better than Rise but not quite at good as Dawn's £8 million debut.
With this in mind I'd expect this to end its run in the £30 million region.
Spider-Man Homecoming falls to number 3 this week leapfrogging over Despicable Me 3 by the tightest of margins with a £3.7 million weekend.
This brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release and is looking set to match the first Spider-Man film from 2002.
Despicable Me at number 2 took £3.8 million and has now grossed £26 million from 3 weekends of release.
For the Monday - Sunday week the top film would have been Spider-Man with a £7.4 million weekly gross with Apes second and Despicable Me 3 third.
For the third weekend running The Boss Baby is the longest running film with 15 weeks and the highest grossing with £28 million.

The apes were no competition for the spider as Spider-Man Homecoming holds on to the top of the global box office for a second week.
With a $117.5 million week from 64 countries the Marvel version of the popular franchise hold the top spot beating all competition with relative ease.
This brings the films total global gross to $469 million and the film is set to go over half a billion this week, a billion could be a stretch though.
War For The Planet of The Apes is the top new film at 2 with $102.5 million from 62 countries and a 55% 45% split from US to rest of the world.
This is the series finale and despite not taking as much as the previous film this is still on track to be another winner for the much loved series.
