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.

...with THREE DOG NIGHT! Once again, I'm enjoying the guilty pleasure of enjoying "Eli's Coming" with fellow fans of the late, lamented SportsNight. That, along with memories of The Service's cover of "Shambala" led me to compile a few more, including "Mama Told Me Not to Come," "Joy To The World," "One," "Liar," and "Celebrate."
