Black Panther continued its reign at the North American box office this weekend with a healthy $27-Million. This marks the first time that a film has held the top spot for five weeks in a row since James Cameron's Avatar hit the big screen back in 2009.
The Ryan Coogler Marvel movie beat out Roar Uthaug's Tomb Raider for the #1 spot, but the video game adaption pulled off a win overseas with a huge $84.5-Million opening take.
The North American box office was rounded out by I Can Only Imagine in third place, Disney's A Wrinkle In Time in fourth and the teen comedy Love, Simon in fifth.
Will Black Panther continue to rule the box office into next weekend? Only time will tell.
Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis, Black Panther is in theatres now.
