The burgeoning actor, now known for his portrayal of a young Erik Killmonger in Marvel's Black Panther, reportedly earned $1,000 a day during filming for the superhero flick, earning a guaranteed paycheck of $7,654 according to a contract obtained by TMZ.
The Marvel film remained number one at the box office for the fifth straight week.
The rebooted Tomb Raider, starring Alicia Vikander, opened with $23.5 million at home, a modest USA start for the $90 million film based on a video game.
This showing makes Black Panther only the seventh film to gross over $600 million domestically.
Domestically, "Black Panther" is poised to soon pass 2012's "The Avengers" ($623.4 million) as the biggest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Third place goes to the faith-based feature I Can Only Imagine.

In fourth, down two spots from last week, was Disney's science fantasy adventure "A Wrinkle in Time", at $16.6 million, a 50 percent drop from last weekend.
The teen romantic dramedy Love, Simon debuted with $11.5 million this weekend and very positive reviews to suggest that it's staying-power could lead to a long run at the box office.
"Tomb Raider", meanwhile, is not performing as well as it might have in its opening weekend, recording a less than impressive $23.5 million from 3,854 theaters across North America.
Overseas, "Black Panther" added an estimated $30 million, bringing its worldwide tally to more than $1.183 billion.
Internationally, the remake earned an estimated $84.5 million, bringing its global total to an estimated $102.5 million. Red Sparrow continues to do middling business with $4.5 million over the weekend, to raise its, we assume, disappointing three-week total to $39.6 million.
Next weekend sees the release of Pacific Rim Uprising and Isle of Dogs, which will surely shake things up at the weekend box-office yet again.
