Weekend Box-Office: LOGAN Slashes Newcomers THE SHACK and BEFORE I FALL


Hugh Jackman's last Wolverine movie, "Logan", topped the weekend box-office, slaying newcomers "The Shack" and "Before I Fall" and pushing aside last week's No.1 movie "Get Out".

Find out more about the weekend box office after the jump.

"Logan" was unstoppable in its opening weekend, finishing with $85.3 million in spite of its R rating and much darker plot. It's a major improvement over the previous film, "The Wolverine" which opened with $53.1 million in 2013, and very slightly better than the $85 million debut of 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". "Deadpool" still reigns supreme, however, with a $132 million opening weekend, still the highest ever for an R-rated film. "Logan" also has the widest release of any R-rated film in history, with 4,071 screens. The superhero movie grossed an additional $152.5 million from overseas markets. Its production budget is estimated at $97 million. "Logan" received plenty of love from both critics and moviegoers, scoring a solid 83% on Rotten Tomatoes and an "A-" from CinemaScore.

In second place, last week's No.1 film "Get Out" dropped only 21.8% for a $26.1 million finish over the weekend. The film has reached an amazing $75.9 million in just 10 days, all on a budget of $4.5 million. I think it's time to call this one another Jason Blum hit.

Another new wide release lands at #3. The faith-based drama "The Shack" finished its opening weekend run with $16.1 million, The film received an "A" from CinemaScore, but critics gave it a severely negative reception (16% on Rotten Tomatoes).

The other new release of the week, the YA adaptation "Before I Fall" finished in fifth place with $4.9 million, which isn't a total disaster for a film that only cost $5 million to produce. The film received decent reviews from critics (68% on Rotten Tomatoes) and a not-bad "B" from CinemaScore's exit polls.

New Wide Releases: "Logan", "The Shack", "Before I Fall".

Biggest Drop : "The Great Wall" (-61.6%)

Smallest Drop : "Get Out" (-21.8%)
