BOX OFFICE: SUICIDE SQUAD Remains At #1 For A Third Week As BEN-HUR Crashes And Burns

As expected, Suicide Squad has remained at #1 this weekend, a feat which both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice failed to achieve! Hit the jump for all the latest updates...

Ben-Hur is the final big budget movie of the summer, but it also looks set to be one of its biggest flops. Despite an attempt to draw in faith based moviegoers, the remake of the Oscar winning classic looks set to make a paltry $11 million - $12 million this weekend despite surprisingly receiving an A- CinemaScore. After a $4.1 million debut on Friday, Ben-Hur will finish behind War DogsKubo and the Two Strings, and Sausage Party, and that leaves the door open for Suicide Squad to take advantage. 
 
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Suicide Squad will stay at #1 after grossing $6 million yesterday, and despite yet another fairly significant drop, a haul of $20 million over the weekend will be more than enough to make sure it's one of just a handful of 2016 releases to stay at the top spot for three consecutive weeks this year. As a result, it should end up with a domestic haul of $261 million, a number which you have to believe Warner Bros. is very happy with after those negative reviews.
