Barbershop: The Next Cut placed with 20MM, matching its reported production budget; it should, with good reviews, make a modest profit. The Boss showed with 10.2MM, falling a hard-for-comedy 56 percent and endangering its profitability before the home market.  Batman v Superman takes the fourth slot with 9MM on an ugly 61 percent drop; that said, the DC epic has grossed 800MM worldwide, which is probably profitable or close to it.  Zootopia rounds out the Top Five with another 8.2MM and is 75MM ahead of BvS worldwide.Below the fold, Criminal flopped with a 5.9MM debut against a 31MM budget; this has been as bad a year for Lionsgate as it has been a great year for Disney.
