WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Suicide Squad three-peats atop the chart with 20.7MM, in a period historically bad for movies (and for bad movies).That was a 52 percent drop, just a few percent better than what Batman v Superman did in its third frame. Thats said, it's now likely to profit based on worldwide receipts, so this is more a disappointment than a flop.  Sausage Party repeats in second place with 15.3MM on a 55 percent drop that's probably okay for an R-rated animated comedy.  War Dogs shows with a 14.3MM debut, which is probably acceptable against a 40MM budget.  Kubo and the Two Strings takes the fourth slot with a 12.6MM debut against a 60MM budget, which means the foreign theme may have to carry it into foreign markets.  The debut of the thrice-remade Ben-Hur rounds out the Top Five with an 11.4MM debut against a 100MM budget, almost certainly in flop territory, despite backing from two studios for a faith-based production. Ouch.
