Monday Morning Box Office Report: Pacific Rim Dethrones Black Panther


After five weeks at the top of the box office, Marvel’s Black Panther finally fell to a worthy opponent over the weekend as Pacific Rim: Uprising debuted at #1. Uprising opened with $28 million, which is about $10 million less than the original, but once again it is on track to make the majority of its money overseas where it added another $122.5 million. In second place, Black Panther earned $16.7 million and has now passed The Avengers to become the highest-grossing superhero movie of all time domestically. I Can Only Imagine remained in third in its second weekend, adding another $13.8 million, while Sherlock Gnomes opened in fourth with $10.6 million. Tomb Raider rounded out the top 5. Elsewhere, Paul, Apostle of Christ and Midnight Sun opened in eight and tenth place respectively, while Steven Soderbergh’s Unsane debuted outside the top 10 with $3.8 million (still already doubling its modest budget).
