WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Hotel Translylvania 3: Summer Vacation tops the chart with 44.1MM, right between the original and the sequel; note those opened in September to play through Halloween, while this one will have to make its money on weekdays also. Ant-Man and the Wasp places with 28,8MM on a 62 percent drop that's a little concerning but not shocking; it now looks to top out around where the original did, short of 200MM domestic. The lagging foreign grosses might also be a concerm, tho the World Cup was likely a factor here. Skyscraper shows with 25.5MM against a 125MM budget which means The Rock better be cooking in foreign markets. One wonders if there isn't just a lot of fatigue this Summer: Star Wars, The Rock, maybe even Marvel -- still plenty of money being made, but some concern about studios spending big on supposedly safe plays. Incredibles 2 takes the fourth slot with another 16.2MM, but seeming less likely to become the year's third 600MM grosser. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom rounds out the Top Five with 15.5MM, and the 363MM total domestic also raises that fatigue question -- or maybe the franchise reboot hasn't aged well for people.
