WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Zootopia threepeats atop the chart with 38MM, a leggy performance and one that lacks any animated competition for another month. It's the best 3rd weekend for an animated flick evah and is already closing in on 600MM worldwide. The Divergent Series: Allegiant places with 29MM; the first two installments both opened over 50MM, so this is going to hurt. Miracles From Heaven showed with 15MM (18MM since its Wed opening), which should be fine against a 13MM budget headed into Easter weekend. 10 Cloverfield Lane takes the fourth slot with 12.5MM; its 45MM domestic total probably puts this 15MM budgeted flick into profit before overseas grosses. Deadpool rounds out the Top 5 with 8MM; only Batman v Superman will stop this one from beating The Passion of the Christ's 317MM R-rated record.
