"Black Panther" tops box office for fifth weekend

20 March 2018

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.

The subpoena's intention was to "clean up" and to ensure that all related documents are handed over to the special counsel . The White House declined to comment specifically on the report and referred questions to the Trump Organization.

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.
