War Dogs ExcerptSuicide Squad might come out on top for the third week in a row, but that’s the least interesting box office story here. Rather, will Sausage Party maintain its second spot, or will War Dogs ruin that? And will Ben-Hur be able to crack the top five?

Sausage Party ExcerptSuicide Squad may have taken spot number one as was predicted, but it wasn’t the winner of the weekend. Instead, it turned out to be the surprise hit of the weekend: Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s R-rated food-based animated comedy, Sausage Party. It was predicted to make a modest $15-20 million in its opening weekend and ended Sunday evening with $34 million.

Suicide Squad ExcerptBefore it has even opened domestically, Suicide Squad sits at 28 percent with 149 reviews. But while these reviews are certainly a blow, they won’t stop die-hard fans and those wanting to determine an opinion for themselves from going out to the theater this weekend.

Jason Bourne ExcerptAfter Jeremy Renner’s outing in the Bourne franchise in 2012, Matt Damon is back as the titular character and that fact alone should draw crowds to the action movie this weekend. We predict that Jason Bourne will easily come out on top, beating contenders like Star Trek Beyond and Bad Moms.

Chris Pine plays Kirk in Star Trek Beyond from Paramount Pictures, Skydance, Bad Robot, Sneaky Shark and Perfect Storm EntertainmentPart of the reason Star Trek Beyond fell short here at home is thanks to the crowded summer box office. This is only the sixth weekend on record to have five separate films each gross at least $20 million in the same weekend, after all, and 3rd through 5th place were all very nearly tied.

Another prospective summer tentpole, Star Trek Beyond, bows this weekend after its world premiere at SDCC on Wednesday, though it remains to be seen if it can break out past other live action studio hopefuls that have had lackluster openings this year.

Ghostbusters 2016 ExcerptUnfortunately for Sony Pictures, Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters made what it was expected to make, rather than meeting its stretch goal. With nearly any other film, this wouldn’t be a cause for concern. But with this reboot of the 1984 comedy classic, there are a few reasons to hesitate over this opening weekend intake.

ghostbusters excerptPaul Feig’s new Ghostbusters reboot arrives in theaters this weekend, and people across the board are waiting on tenterhooks to see where its box office numbers will fall. Plenty of reviews are in for the film, and they’re trending mostly positive. The film has been receiving good word of mouth, which should help it perform slightly above expected.

And though the best opening has since been taken over by Toy Story 3 in 2010, Nemo is still the third highest grossing film in their repertoire. Early estimates are putting Dory between the two, though some outsize projections have it beating out TS3.

Though The Angry Birds MovieCaptain America: Civil War, and Neighbors 2 performed about as expected over the 4-day, openers X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice Through the Looking Glass fell a bit shy of their marks.
