WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 repeats atop the chart with 63MM on a 57 percent drop, but almost exactly what the original made in its second weekend.

The Fate of the Furious was fourth, adding another 5.3MM to a global total of almost 1.2 Billion.  The Boss Baby rounds out the Top Five with another 4.6MM.
