BETTY WRIGHT: Soul's Golden Agony Aunt.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Deadpool repeats atop the chart with 55MM ona 59 percent drp in line with expectations. It is already the sixth-highest grossing R-rated movie ever and is already close to 500MM worldwide. Kung Fu Panda 3 places again with 12.5MM and is closing in on 300MM, despite not openining in many markets worldwide until March. The debut of Risen shows with 11.8MM; this likely would have been better opening closer to Easter, but Miracles from Heaven (starring Jennifer Garner) opens the weekend before that holiday. Even so, Risen may be able to profit in theaters against a 20MM budget, if the historical angle plays overseas. The Witch took the fourth slot with 8.7MM, which is probably good as the studio that picked it up at Sundance, A24, likely has around 5MM invested in it. How to Be Single rounds out the Top Five with 8.2MM on a pos-Valentine's drop of 54 percent.  It's about halfway to profit, and may yet make it in theaters.
