NEW YORK - Marvel's R-rated antihero smash "Deadpool" continued to dominate movie theaters over the weekend, earning an estimated $55 million and trouncing a trio of newcomers.

After pulling in a massive $152.2 million in its President's Day weekend four-day debut, the comic book adaptation from 20th Century Fox starring Ryan Reynolds as a foul-mouthed mercenary again topped the North American box office. Having already grossed $235.4 million domestically, "Deadpool" - made for just $58 million - is likely to become one of the most successful R-rated movies ever.

Among new releases, the faith-based drama "Risen," starring Joseph Fiennes, debuted with $11.8 million for Sony. A24's Puritan period thriller "The Witch" opened with $8.7 million. The Jesse Owens biopic from Focus Features, "Race," struggled to find its footing with $7.3 million.
