Weekend Box Office: 'Black Panther' Buries 'Tomb Raider' With $27M

The movie, also starring Dominic West and Kristin Scott Thomas, netted $23.5 million for the three-day weekend.

"Black Panther" took in a total of $30 million internationally to push its global take to $577 million - making it the fifth highest title in the Marvel Cinematic Universe by that measure. Russian Federation generated the top figure with $4.4 million at a 50% share of the top five films, followed by the United Kingdom with $4.2 million on 1,089 screens, France with $3.2 million at 553 screens and Germany and Mexico with $2.2 million each.

But a first-round upset of 4-seed Wichita State on Friday has sent the Thundering Herd on to face the Mountaineers. Perhaps Huggins was just caught checking some notes, since West Virginia played after the Shockers' game.

Ryan Coogler's Black Panther continued to make history in its fifth weekend with a box-office haul of $27 million, defeating Tomb Raider and becoming only the seventh film ever to cross the $600 million mark in North America. Titanic dominated the box office for a staggering 15 consecutive weekends, meaning Black Panther would effectively have to stay on top for about two and a half more months to equal it. The movie has already earned over $66 million there - out-grossing the "Star Wars" movies that have played there ("The Last Jedi" earned $42.5 million in the Middle Kingdom) and on pace to be one of the top Marvel Cinematic Universe titles released in China. Turns out "Black Panther" works.

"Black Panther" will face competition next weekend from Universal-Legendary's launch of "Pacific Rim: Uprising" and Paramount's animated comedy "Sherlock Gnomes".

This means that Broadcom will still be moving its headquarters to the United States, making it more of presence domestically. As such, Broadcom and Qualcomm "shall immediately and permanently abandon the proposed takeover", ordered the US President.

The movie topped the foreign weekend chart with $84.5-M from 65 markets for an overseas take of $102.5-M and $126-M globally. It barely performed better at the box office than 2003's "Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life", which starred Angelina Jolie and closed that era of the franchise. Fox's third weekend of "Red Sparrow" followed in ninth with $4.5 million at 2,583 venues, pushing the Jennifer Lawrence thriller past $39 million. Love, Simon cost $17 million to produce.

Paramount's fourth weekend of "Annihilation" and Sony's 13th weekend of "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" tied for 11th place with $1.7 million.

Focus Features' opening weekend of the thriller "7 Days in Entebbe" came in 13th with a modest $1.6 million at 838 locations.
