Box Office Top 20: 'Logan' debut even bigger than expected

NEW YORK (AP) — "Logan," Hugh Jackman's last stand as Wolverine, did even better than expected. According to final box-office figures Monday, its weekend debut totaled $88.4 million in North American ticket sales, $3 million more than was estimated Sunday.

The smash hit "X-Men" spinoff ranks as the fourth best March opening (not adjusting for inflation), as well as one of the best R-rated debuts. "Logan," a 20th Century Fox release, took in $247 million globally over the weekend.

Last week's top film, Jordan Peele's horror sensation "Get Out," slid just 22 percent in its second week. It has now grossed $78.1 million in 10 days.
