WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: It's a record last weekend of July at the cineplex.  Barbie repeats atop the chart with an estimated 93MM on a mere 43 percent drop, the best second weekend Warner Bros. has ever seen.  Oppenheimer places with 46MM on a mere 44 percent drop, the first R-rated move to gross over 10MM for 10 days straight.  Haunted Mansion likely shows with a 42MM debut.  Below the fold, note that Sound of Freedom is outgrossing the latest Mission: Imppossible domestically.  The laest from Tom Cruise is also lagging Indiana Jones 5 at this point in their respective runs, though that's likely because M:I 7 opened on a Wednesday instead of a Friday.
