Behind the US/Worldwide Weekend Box Office – 8/21/16

  OPENINGS:  The weekend’s tallest dwarf was WAR DOGS (RatPac/Warners) with a soft $14.3M start.  The 12% Saturday drop indicates that word of mouth isn’t great, and early international numbers are weak as we...

EARLY FRIDAY BOX OFFICE: All Lions & Tigers & Bears As “Jungle Book” Devours “Keanu,” “Mother’s Day”
