WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Get Out easily topped the chart with a 30.5MM debut against a 4.5MM production budget, riding a tsunami of buzz and a perfect Tomatometer.  The LEGO Batman Movie placed with 19MM on a steeper-than-expected42 percent drop, but also crosses the 200MM mark worldwide.  John Wick: Chapter 2 showed with 9MM on a 45 percent drop, finishing ahead of Fifty Shades Darker for the first weekend since they were released. Wick crossed the 100MM mark worldwide and is likely in the black now.  The Great Wall continues a less-than-great run in the US in the fourth slot with 8.7MM; it's manking hundreds of millions oveseas, tho whether it can profit against a 150MM production budget is still a question.  Fifty Shades Darker rounds out the Top Five with 7.7MM on a 62 percent drop; this one's also grossing hundreds of millions overseas on about a third of the production budget of The Great Wall.
