Black Panther Keeps Tomb Raider From Claiming Number One At Box Office

This past weekend saw the wide release of two films, Tomb Raider, and Love, Simon. It also saw the limited release of the faith-based film, I Can Only Imagine.

In the number one spot is Black Panther, if you can believe it. It holds on to that ranking for its fifth weekend, taking in $27.0M domestically. Its grand total for its worldwide grosses so far is $1.182Bn, making it the fourth highest marvel film to date, behind Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Iron Man 3. The film has become the second highest grossing Marvel film domestically, trailing only Avengers. Without a doubt, by the time its run is up, its domestic total will beat that of Avengers.

At number two, we have Tomb Raider with $23.5M. It was tracking for $25M, though when all said and done, I’m fairly confident the studio was hoping for better. Though while its domestic cume has been terrible, it’s made $126M worldwide. Will it make enough to justify its $94M budget? We’ll have to wait and see.

At number three is the random I Can Only Imagine, a faith-based film that brought in $17.0M despite its limited theater run. Based on its $7M budget, it’s clear that this one is another success for faith-based films.
