WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Logan went berserker atop the chart with 85.3MM, well ahead of studio projections of 60MM. As March premieres go, Logan comes in behind only Batman v Superman, The Hunger Games, and Alice In Wonderland. Given a production budget just under 100MM, this will be a big winner, as Wolverine plays big in international markets. Get Out places with 26.1MM on a 22 percent drop, much less than the 55-60 percent drops for horror films or even the 35-40 percent drops for critical darlings. The Shack showed with 16.1MM; this faith-based movie attracted some known actors and will likely do pretty well against a 20MM budget. The LEGO Batman Movie takes the fourth slot with 11.7MM on a 39 percent drop that seems a bit large considering the lack of competition for family films at the moment. Before I Fall rounds out the Top Five with 4.9MM against a 5MM production budget.
