Suicide Squad dips, but stays atop box office

By Kenny Howell

Suicide Squad took a pretty sizable drop from the record breaking numbers in opening week, but still made enough to win the box office for the second week in a row.

The DC anti-super heroes earned $43.8 million in its second week, putting comfortably ahead of its nearest competition, the R-rated animated film Sausage Party. The Seth Rogen-Evan Goldberg comedy made well more than its budget with $33.6 million. It cost just $19 million to make.

The other major release of the week was Pete's Dragon, which was a bit underwhelming at just $21.5 million. It cost $65 million to make, so it's got a ways to go, but family films usually have decent staying power.

Jason Bourne past its budget number to land in fourth. The super spy added another $13.6 million to push its total to $126.8 million, passing its budget of $120 million.

Bad Moms added another $11.5 million to finish in fifth.
