Meanwhile the Joe Wright-directed World War II biopic clicked past the $30M mark, making it Focus Features’ second highest grossing title so far off its 2017 slate after Atomic Blonde ($51.6M).

Darkest Hour in its marketing materials has emphasized how a leader can lead positively with words and bring people together; essentially an inspirational message to show how a strong leader did a great job at a very difficult time in history. Darkest Hour follows Churchill as he takes the office as UK’s Prime Minister just as the Nazis are closing in. His cabinet insists he broker a peace arrangement with Germany, a decision he greatly struggles with throughout the movie.
