‘Black Panther’ Is the First Film Since ‘Avatar’ to Top Weekend Box Office 5 Straight Times

Marvel’s Black Panther continues its winning streak at the box office, earning its fifth consecutive weekend at the No. 1 slot with $27 million earned. In yet another feat, this makes Black Panther the first film to finish at No. 1 five consecutive times since 2009’s Avatar. The Alicia Vikander-starring remake of the classic video game Tomb Raider came in second in its opening weekend with $23.5 million, according to Deadline.

Black Panther has become only the seventh film to pass the $600 million mark at the North American box office and is the second-fastest film to do so after Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The highly-praised Marvel superhero movie hit $1 billion globally and isn’t far from beating The Avengers (which raked in $623 million) as top-grossing superhero film of all time domestically.

The Christian drama I Can Only Imagine exceeded expectations by coming in third with $17.1 million. Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time starring Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling came in second place last weekend but fell to fourth with $16.6 million.

  1. Too bad Avatar was an amazing movie. First of it kind as imax 3D!
    And Black Panther was just a jerkfeast for SJWs/PC nation/afrolovers to hold each other penises and jerkoff!
    But that doesn't makes a good movie in long terms…

  2. Black panther was good but it’s not the greatest marvel movie ever or even close, people just hype it up because it has mostly black people in it and will be called racist if they critique it honestly.

  3. Thats it you fuck, talkin like you hot shit sayin avatar is over rated look at the fuckin stats you god damn troll, if you aint fired when i buy complex your the first one to fuckin go
