'Black Panther' purrs as 'A Wrinkle in Time' still flops

T'Challa in Black Panther and Lara Croft in Tomb Raider

"Black Panther" shows no signs of giving up its total domination at the box office, landing in the #1 spot for the fifth consecutive week sfter raking in an additional $27 million in domestic ticket sales this weekend. Black Panther is also only the seventh film to gross over $600 million at the domestic box office.

Marvel's Black Panther movie is still the King of the Box Office. Certainly not compared to the adjusted debuts of the Angelina Jolie-led version in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider ($77.4 million) and 2003's Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life ($33.2 million), the latter being too low to consider continuing the video game adaptation franchise at the time. The Ryan Coogler-helmed film will soon see itself pass fellow Marvel film The Avengers ($623 million) to become the highest grossing superhero film in North America.

According to reports, the last film to slay like Black Panther was 2009's Avatar. So far the film has brought in $605.4 million, while worldwide "Black Panther" has grossed more than $1.1 billion.

Overseas, "Black Panther" added an estimated $30 million, bringing its worldwide tally to more than $1.183 billion. "To everyone who celebrated the release by watching, dressing up, singing in the cinemas and enjoying the film across social media, a very big thank you from all of us at Disney and Marvel Studios". The $90 million film opened with $23.5 million, largely failing to stir much excitement among moviegoers. The sequel, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, saw its opening weekend numbers fall dramatically from its predecessor's.

Lionsgate-Roadside Attractions' faith-based drama "I Can Only Imagine" outperformed forecasts with $17.1 million at 1,629 venues, notching the top per-screen average in the top 10 with $10,476.

Perhaps the biggest story of the weekend was the disappointing performance of "A Wrinkle in Time", which fell two places to fourth in its second week, with a woeful $16.3 million - a 50 percent drop. That would make Black Panther the highest-grossing MCU movie domestically. Made for just $7 million, The film stars Dennis Quaid, Cloris Leachman, Trace Adkins, J. Michael Finley, Priscilla Shirer, and Madeline Carroll.
