The Dark Tower grossed $1.340m while Dunkirk began to slide down the charts with $1.109m, down from $1.729m the previous week.

Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey star in The Dark Tower

Since its debut in late July, Dunkirk has topped $20m in takings, according to the Motion Picture Distributors Association of Australia.

Logan Lucky, Steven Soderbergh’s heist comedy, came in at number four in its debut week with $914,343 in takings, while fellow debutant, late life love story Hampstead, was in fifth position with $738,802.

War for the Planet of the Apes fell fell out of the top five to seventh spot with $541,019 in ticket sales, beaten to sixth by Valerian and the City of the Thousand Planets which earned $548,219.
