NEW YORK (AP) -- "Suicide Squad" and "Sausage Party" remained no. 1 and no. 2 at the weekend box office in North America, while a trio of newcomers failed to make much of a dent.

One of them, Paramount's $100 million remake of "Ben-Hur," bombed outright. The film opened with just $11.2 million, according to final box-office figures Monday, despite its high price tag for MGM and Paramount.

The Jonah Hill-Miles Teller Iraq War comedy "War Dogs" debuted decently with $14.7 million for Warner Bros. And the stop-motion animated "Kubo and the Two Strings," an ancient Japan fantasy from Laika Entertainment and Focus Features, sold a modest $12.6 million in tickets.
