By Alex Osborn Logan dominated the domestic box office this weekend, debuting in first place with an estimated $85.3 million.

As noted by Variety, Hugh Jackman's final Wolverine film boasted a production budget of $97 million. Logan serves as further evidence that there's a large market for R-rated comic book films, as it's not the first adult-oriented comic-inspired hit from Fox, with Deadpool opening to incredible success last year.

For our thoughts on the James Mangold-directed film, which serves as an "amazing swan song for the Wolverine character,

Following its incredible debut last week, Get Out slipped to second with an estimated $26.1 million. Jordan Peele's horror film continues to be a big moneymaker for Universal, having only cost $5 million to produce.

Meanwhile, Lionsgate's faith-based drama The Shack debuted in third place, earning $16.1 million. The film stars Sam Worthington and Octavia Spencer, and cost $26 million to make.

Rounding out the top five is The LEGO Batman Movie, which placed fourth with $11.7 million, and the young adult drama Before I Fall, which placed fifth with $4.9 million.
