WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Boss Baby tops the chart with 49MM and 108MM total worldwide, probably just good enough for a movie that cost 125MM before marketing but wasn't very well-reviewed. A good enough haul to have Beauty and the Beast place despite another 47.5MM domestic and a worldwide total of 876.3MM. The debut of Ghost in the Shell showed with 19MM, which has to be disapointing for ahaevily marketed film topped by one of Hollywood's biggest action stars.  Power Rangers drops into fourth with 14.5MM on an expected heavy skid of 64 percent.  Kong: Skull Island rounds out the Top Five with another 8.8MM on another leggy 40 percent drop, which gives hope of profiting on the big screen given its strong overseas numbers.

RUSSIA: Police in Moscow detained 29 anti-corruption protesters who took to the streets on Sunday in a follow-up of last week's large-scale demonstrations in the Russian capital, according to a Reuters witness.
