A SONG FOR YOU: 10 Tracks Written About Ex-Bandmates.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Jason Bourne easily topped the chart with 60MM, the highest-opening installment of the franchise and exceeding tracking estimates by eight figures.  Star Trek Beyond placed with 24MM on a 60 percent drop that's more like the old Trek films than this reboot series; it now looks like this edition will also lose money on the big screen, especially given the modest overseas biz so far.  Bad Moms shows with 23.4MM, well ahead of tracking estimates and ahead of its 20MM production budget; this is on a par with the opening for Bridesmaids and We're The Millers, so good word-of-mouth could give this some legs. The Secret Life of Pets takes the fourth slot with 18.2MM as it closes in on 300MM domestic (and likely 500MM overseas by the end of its run). Lights Out rounds out the Top Five with 10.8MM on a 50 percent drop; that's pretty common for the genre and still terrific against a 4.9MM production budget.  Below the fold, the Ghostbusters reboot is in seventh and in serious trouble as it struggles past the 100MM mark against a 144MM budget.  In contrast, Nerve checks in at eighth with 15MM since its Wednesday opening, much less worrisome against a 20MM budget.
