Summer US box office sales lowest in two decades

Summer takings at the US box office were at their lowest level for more than two decades, with only films aimed at youngsters really making any impact.
But what is behind the slump? Analysts predicted an autumn in attendance at the start of the summer - blaming a continuing trend for making sequels, along with the rise in popularity of streaming services.
August box office takings were $625 million, nearly 35% lower than the similar month last year.
