'Black Panther' tops box office with $27 million

'Black Panther' tops box office with $27 million

In the money: Child actor Seth Carr was paid $1,000 a day for his role as the young Killmonger in Marvel's Black Panther. Despite taking second place on Friday, "Black Panther" ended up winning the overall United States weekend box office race. With a budget of over $100 million, that's a tough pill to swallow.

The surprise of the weekend was the Lionsgate-Roadside Attractions Christian drama "I Can Only Imagine", which grossed $17.1 million on 1,629 screens - less than half the number that Black Panther, Tomb Raider and A Winkle in Time played on.

As one may expect given its box office performance, Black Panther is expected to bring in a tidy sum for Disney Pictures. People love the original PACIFIC RIM, and the sequel promises more of what people love; giant monsters fighting giant robots. Note: the numbers below will be updated as they become final.

Black Panther tops Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug's 2018 rendition of action-packed classic Tomb Raider, starring Alicia Vikander. Digging in its claws, Black Panther has clung to its box-office lead for a fifth straight weekend, taking in an estimated US$27 million (RM105.54 million) in North American theaters while fending off two new films, website Exhibitor Relations said yesterday. Jumanji, which won its third, fourth, fifth and seventh weekends, became the 30th film to cross the $400 million mark in domestic grosses. The thought of Black Panther winning a sixth weekend isn't that insane with Uprising projecting so low. The $7 million film had been projected by trackers to make $5-6 million, but has earned huge word of mouth among Christian audiences with an A+ on CinemaScore. The movie, which was directed by Arrow-verse producer Greg Berlanti, stars Nick Robinson as Simon, a teen who struggles with coming out to his family and friends.

When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda , the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.

Both Love, Simon and I Can Only Imagine nabbed coveted A+ CinemaScores, while Tomb Raider earned a mediocre B. The film garnered strong reviews (91% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences agreed, giving it an A-plus CinemaScore.

He's in one of the biggest box office smashes of all time.

"I feel good that we released this film". Overseas, the film has banked $577 million. A domestic final haul near $95 million is possible.
