Can’t argue with success!!!
Black Panther continued dominating the box office AGAIN this weekend, landing once again in the top spot in North America, which is even bigger news because it far surpassed Tomb Raider in that film’s opening weekend!
The Ryan Coogler-directed Black Panther took in a domestic box office haul of $27 million over the last two days, which was a couple bills more than Tomb Raider‘s muted $23.5 million from 3,854 theaters across North America.
For Black Panther, that means the historic movie has now taken in more than $600 million at the domestic box office! Truly incredible!!!
And for Tomb Raider, that $23.5 million number is no doubt a disappointment for Warner Bros. and MGM, which together worked hard to reboot the female-led franchise based on the video game. But this weekend’s Tomb Raider opener was no match for Angelina Jolie‘s version in the early 2000s.
The news isn’t all bad for Tomb Raider; the movie did do $84.5 million from 65 markets overseas (tops worldwide on the foreign weekend chart), and in total put together a tally of $102.5 million on its opening weekend.
Not too bad… but still…
Elsewhere at the box office, the other big headline centered around I Can Only Imagine, a faith-based film from Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate, which did a surprising $17.1 million from 1,628 theaters.
That total was good enough to defeat both A Wrinkle Of Time and Love, Simon this weekend in a VERY surprise upset!!! Of course, no one could touch Black Panther… again…
What’d y’all see in theaters this weekend, Perezcious readers?!
