Suicide Squad Holds on to the Box Office with $44 Million

Suicide Squad easily held the to the top spot at the box office ($43.8 million). However, it dropped 67% from last weekend, which is reminiscent of the 69% drop Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had in the beginning of the year... a very front loaded movie, indeed.  Despite negative press, Suicide Squad has already grossed $465.4 million worldwide.

In other news, the raunchy animated comedy, Sausage Party debuted to a strong $33.6 million for second place.  This bested Disney's live action remake Pete's Dragon ($21.5 million), which has good reviews and good word of mouth, but failed to make a huge splash at the box office.  It's not a flop for Disney, but I'm sure they were expecting more  from the $65 million pic.  Maybe the positive reviews will help it grow some legs over the next couple of weeks.
