WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Deadpool 2 tops the chart with 125MM, a few million less than the original, which might be expected after weeks and weeks of the MCU dominating theaters, but maybe a little concerning with Solo set to dominate the holiday weekend.  Avengers: Infinity War places with 28.7MM on a 53 percent drop, suggesting it will pass 650MM domestic, but probably not 700MM.  Book Club shows with a surprising 12.5MM (against a reported 10MM budget), in an example of successful counter-programming.   Life of the Party skids 57 percent to make 7.7MM in its second weekend, taking the fourth slot (and recouping its reported 30MM production budget).  Breaking In skids a harder 63 percent to round out theTop Five with 6.5MM, but 28.8MM domestic against a 6MM budget looks pretty good.

...with POWER POP! A few of these may be known generally, like Cheap Trick's "Way of the World" and Nick Lowe's "Cruel to Be Kind"... and some well-known to fans of the genre, like Dwight Twilley's "I'm On Fire," Shoes "Too Late," The Records' "Starry Eyes," the Flamin' Groovies' "Shake Some Action" and the Plimsouls'  "A Million Miles Away" (seen here in a rare live slot).  Others are well-known to longtime Pate fans, like the Three O'Clock's "Her Head's Revolving" or Let's Active's "Waters Part."

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases include Deadpool 2, which is currently scoring 85 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; Show Dogs, which was not screened for critics; and Book Club, scoring 64 percent.

DEADPOOL 2, btw, does the things that made the original so good, but differently.  That's no small acievement.  Comedy is generally tougher than drama (or action) and the sequel by definition loses the element of surprise.  So the film throws in enough surprises, right from the start, to make a sequel close to as entertaining as the first.  Stay for the credits sequences; there's a big, funny cameo, and if you stick to the end you'll get an answer to a question I was asking myself during the third act brawl.
