"Black Panther" tops box office for fifth weekend

T'Challa in Black Panther and Lara Croft in Tomb Raider

There seems to be no stopping "Black Panther", as it keeps leaping in the box office, becoming only the second movie in the 21st century to stay number 1 for 5 straight weeks.

The Disney/Marvel movie grossed $27 million over the weekend to top the new "Tomb Raider", which grossed $23 million.

The Disney/Marvel superhero film has now earned a domestic total of just over $600 million, matching up to the record of "Avatar" in 2009 to hold the top spot for five straight weekends.

Warner Bros."Tomb Raider" starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft is an origins movie that starts with a young and resolute Lara Croft on her way to her first adventures.

That makes the Marvel movie the seventh-biggest domestic release ever - sliding in right behind "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" ($619.8 million) - and the No. 14 ever worldwide, before adjusting for inflation. It is poised to pass The Avengers as the highest grossing superhero movie of all time, according to Box Office Mojo.

This weekend Panther takes $27 million which takes its total United States gross to $605 million.

Louise Slaughter's Net Worth Was Very High
The committee was formally constituted in 1789. "To have met Louise Slaughter is to have known a force of nature ". Brendan Buck, spokesman for House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., tweeted, "The loss of Louise Slaughter is so sad".

Perhaps the biggest story of the weekend was the disappointing performance of "A Wrinkle in Time", which fell two places to fourth in its second week, with a woeful $16.3 million - a 50 percent drop.

"I Can Only Imagine" doubled expectations by sticking to the typical tactic of "faith-based" releases with a grassroots marketing effort that focused on Southern, Southwestern and suburban moviegoers.

"Black Panther" made $28.5 million in its 5th weekend to close with $606 million so far in the United States.

Internationally, the remake earned an estimated $84.5 million, bringing its global total to an estimated $102.5 million.

Next weekend sees the release of Pacific Rim Uprising and Isle of Dogs, which will surely shake things up at the weekend box-office yet again.
