LOS ANGELES — It was a feast for the raunchy animated comedy "Sausage Party" at the box office this weekend. The R-rated pic about anthropomorphized hot dogs and other grocery store foodstuffs earned $34.3 million out of the gate against a modest $19 million budget.

"Sausage Party" still came in second to "Suicide Squad," which held on to the top spot again with $43.5 million in weekend two. The Warner Bros. and DC Comics film has grossed $222.6 million to date.

In third place, Disney's remake of "Pete's Dragon" stayed earthbound with only $21.5 million. The CG and live-action hybrid cost an estimated $65 million to produce.

Holdovers "Jason Bourne" and "Bad Moms" rounded out the top five with $13.8 million and $11.4 million, respectively.
