Last weekend, Warner Bros.' Suicide Squad managed to win the top slot at the box office for a second time in a row with $43.5 million, despite a massive second-weekend drop of 67.4%. This Friday, it goes up against three wildly different movies, the epic remake Ben-Hur, the animated adventure Kubo and the Two Strings and the true story adaptation War Dogs. Regardless of who actually comes out on top, it's shaping up to be a rather close run, but we think Ben-Hur will win this round with $19.6 million, proof that the summer season is indeed coming to a close.
