Suicide Squad (pictured, top) hangs on to the top spot. Poi E hangs on in the top 5, romping past $600,000. The BFG, featuring Jemaine Clement, passes $3 million.
Rampaging through the record books back home in Korea, Yeon Sang-ho’s Train to Busan (pictured, below) has a good opening week here, as does Indian director Dharmendra Suresh Desai’s more widely-released period thriller Rustom. Both raked in well over $8,000 per screen.
