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.
