It has grossed 55MM to date against a 9.9MM budget.  Suicide Squad places with 12.8MM, riding the late-summer doldrums to break the 300MM mark domestically; its 675MM worldwide likely makes it profitable in teaters, if a bit of a disappointment for WB/DC.  Pete's Dragon shows with 8.6MMand hasrecouped its 65MM production budget domestically...but weak overseas performance puts this one in danger of exiting in the red.  Kubo and the Two Strings takes the fourth slot with a similar 8.6MM, which is fairly leggy, but its weak opening keeps it in danger unless it does better in larger overseas markets to come. Sausage Party rounds out the Top Five with 6.5MM and an impressive 89.6MM domestic total against a 19MM budget.  The weekend's wide releases, The Light Between Oceans and Morgan, open in eighth and eighteenth, respectively.
