Monday Morning Box Office Report: Black Panther Fends Off Tomb Raider

boxofficeblackpanther5

T’Challa is still king as Black Panther once again remained at the top of the box office for the fifth weekend in a row. The last movie to accomplish that feat was Avatar back in 2009 on its way to becoming the highest grossing movie of all time. While Black Panther is unlikely to get quite that far, it has now earned $600 million domestically and $1.1 billion worldwide. In second place, Tomb Raider opened with $27 million, which is far less than what Angelina Jolie’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider made back in 2001 ($47.7 million) but it did quite well overseas, adding another $102.5 million. In third place, faith-based musical biopic I Can Only Imagine was the surprise of the weekend with an impressive $17 million. A Wrinkle in Time fell to fourth while the weekend’s other new release, Love, Simon, rounded out the top 5 with $11.5 million. Elsewhere, 7 Days in Entebbe opened way down in 13th place with an estimated $1.6 million, although it was only playing in 838 theaters.
