6:55 am
it was pré america getting into world war ii but it's killing it at the box office. it beat "the emoji movie." i'm not saying emoji movie is supposed to be a big hit. you expect a lot of kids top want to see it. "dunkirk" was in its second weekend. emoji was in its first so it's kind of a big win for christopher nolan to have another number one movie in its second weekend in a row. >> i'm not necessarily surprised because at least "dunkirk" is a story. i think some people might be questioning whether a whole movie just about emojis could really fly you know what i'm saying. >> i agree and steve had a great point the other day about how it would have made a better short like 20 minute movie you know what i mean. like why -- but again, hollywood has ideas and they want to make it -- it still did decent so, you know. >> okay. what do you got coming up kev? we'll have to let it go and get to tucker in a
