Warner Bros. battleground dramedy “War Dogs” moved ahead of the pack of new releases, making $5.5 million during Friday night showings. Among the other two new wide releases, Focus Features’ animated movie “Kubo and the Two Strings” made $4.1 million on Friday, and Paramount and MGM’s big-budget “Ben-Hur” made the same — $4.1 million. Earlier this week, all three new movies were expected to earn very similar three-day grosses of around $12 million.
