WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: In the wake of a mass shooting in a Louisiana theater, Ant-Man tops the chart with 24.8MM on a 57 percent drop, roughly in line with the first Captain America and second Hulk film.The impact of the tragedy on the weekend receipts is unknowable and ultimately far from the most important thing on a human level.  The debut of Pixels placed with 24MM against an 88MM budget; this will be unlikely to profit in theaters, even with strong overseas receipts.Minions showed with 22.1MM on a 55 percent drop; that's steep, but the flick already has ~760MM worldwide against a 74MM budget. Trainwreck took the fourth slot with 17.3MM on a 42 percent drop and will likely make a tidy profit in theaters.  Southpaw rounds out the Top 5 with a surprisingly good 16.5MM against a 30MM budget.  Just below the fold, the debut of Paper Towns took in 12.5MM against a 12MM budget, which is good news for the teen-lit flick and its studio.
