Universal and Legendary’s rock ’em, sock ’em sequel Pacific Rim: Uprising was the film to finally dethrone Black Panther at the box office upon opening to a tepid $28 million domestic take, down 23 percent from the $37.2 million its 2013 predecessor made.
Disney-Marvel’s Black Panther was number one at the domestic box office for the fifth weekend in a row with $27 million, while Warner Bros. and MGM’s Tomb Raider opened in second place with a less than stellar $23.5 million (at 3,854 theaters).
Directed by Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug, the new video game adaptation starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft scored a so-so B grade from moviegoers in CinemaScore exit polls.
Ava DuVernay’s sci-fi/fantasy-adventure A Wrinkle in Time was unable to top the Ryan Coogler-directed Black Panther after opening to a muted $33.3 million from 3,980 locations. But both high-profile films are directed by black directors and this is the first time that pics by African-American directors have held the first and second place spots at the U.S. box office.
After its massive record-breaking opening weekend, Marvel Studios’ Black Panther stayed king, earning an astonishing $108 million in its second weekend. The Ryan Coogler-directed film becomes only the fourth film ever to cross $100 million mark its second weekend along with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World, and The Avengers.
Marvel Studios‘ Black Panther delivered a top five all-time opening this President’s Day holiday weekend with estimated three-day gross of $192 million and a projected $218 million-plus by time Monday night rolls around.
That makes Marvel’s 18th film in its universe of superhero films the highest-grossing February release, beating out 2016’s Deadpool. Black Panther received an A-plus CinemaScore from audiences; the only other Marvel title to earn an A+ was The Avengers.
Disney has unveiled an international trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther movie, with some new pieces of footage of T’Challa and co. in action – including more of the villainous Erik Kilmonger (Michael B. Jordan) who is coming for the King of Wakanda’s (Chadwick Boseman) throne.
