Suicide Squad set to win box office for a third consecutive weekend.

Suicide Squad is winning the box office for the third weekend in a row, despite a drastically decreasing haul. At the same time, the DC Comics flick looks like a bonafide success compared to the massive bomb that is Ben-Hur. Read on for all the details about this week’s Top 10!

Suicide Squad had a record-breaking opening earlier this month. But as many analysts predicted, the box office was front-loaded. All the superhero fans rushed to see the film during the first weekend, and bad reviews have largely kept other moviegoers away.

Now Suicide Squad will hang on to first place with just $20.2 million, a mere fraction of its opening total three weeks ago. Seth Rogen’s Sausage Party is again looking at the number two spot, this time with $15.7 million. War Dogs, starring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller, will likely debut in third with about $14.8 million.

With ticket sales of $12.1 million, the new family film Kubo And The Two Strings is underperforming, and will probably land at number four. And then there’s Ben-Hur. The remake reportedly cost around $100 million to make, but is opening to just $11 million to finish in fifth place.

Receipts of $10.8 million would put Pete’s Dragon in sixth. Bad Moms is on track to nab seventh if it brings in $8.1 million. Potentially rounding out the Top 10 are Jason Bourne ($7.8 million), The Secret Life Of Pets ($5.3 million), and Florence Foster Jenkins ($4.3 million).
