Box-Office Weekend: Black Panther Overthrown

Universal

The problem is that studios have gotten used to seeing such huge blockbuster hits opening in March from Zack Snyder's 300 and 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to The Hunger Games and Disney's Beauty and the Beast, that they placed a lot of weaker tentpole attempts into the month.

Directed by Steven S. DeKnight, Pacific Rim Uprising features John Boyega as Jake Pentecost, Scott Eastwood as Nate Lambert, Cailee Spaeny as Amara Namani, Jing Tian as Liwen Shao, Rinko Kikuchi as Mako Mori, Charlie Day as Dr. Newton Geiszler and Burn Gorman as Dr. Hermann Gottlieb. This is not exactly what you would want for a movie with a $155 million production budget, plus marketing expenses.

It had to happen at some point, and Universal's Pacific Rim Uprising now holds the distinction of being the film that took over Black Panther's long-standing position as king of the weekend box office mountain, Paul Dergarabedian, a box office analyst at comScore, said.

The first Pacific Rim, directed by Guillermo del Toro, was likewise muted in its North American launch, opening to $37.3 million in summer 2013. "Tomb Raider", $10.4 million. 6.

Bigger news is the fact that the top grossing superhero movie in North America has now changed.

Universal and Legendary's Pacific Rim Uprising landed a respectable US$28 million (RM109.69 million) opening weekend at 3,708 locations.

Despite falling to second place, Black Panther still brought in $16.1 million to raise its domestic six-week total over $630 million. It should finish off domestically with around $35 million, and on a $59 million budget that won't be a money-making total.

Lawyers Decline Trump's Legal Team Invitation
President Trump claims plenty of good lawyers want to work with him - as two attorneys pulled out of joining his legal team. Now, Sekulow remains the only attorney on the team helping the president navigate the special counsel investigation.

We now know which movie earns the distinction of ending the streak of "Black Panther" as No. 1 at the box office. Clearly, it's slowly starting to dwindle away but should get one final bump with schools on spring break.

MGM and Paramount's, a unit of Viacom (NASDAQ:VIA) new animated family film Sherlock Gnomes opened to $10.6-M from 3,662 theaters at #4.

Third place again belonged to I Can Only Imagine, which brought in $13.8 million to raise its domestic total to $38.3 million. The Bleecker Street-Fingerprint Releasing film opened with $3.9 million in 2,023 theatres. Tomb Raider was Fifth with $10.4 Million. Tomb Raider has grossed $211 million globally so far, so it's not a complete disaster, but I wouldn't expect a sequel any time soon. "Black Panther", $16.7 million ($12.9 million international). 3.

Love, Simon was down a decent 34% in its second weekend with $7.8 million. Paul, Apostle of Christ finished in eighth place with $5 million.

Unfortunately for Sherlock Gnomes, it doesn't seem likely to have the staying power that allowed The Star to quadruple its opening weekend. We'll have to see if business picks up for the upcoming Good Friday and Easter weekend.

Soderbergh's film had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival in February, as did Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs, which pranced into 27 theaters over the weekend. This weekend was down 36.5 per cent from a year ago when "Beauty and the Beast" was in its second week and the surprisingly successful "Power Rangers" debuted.
