'Tomb Raider' Falls To 'Black Panther' At The Box Office

The movie has already raked in a whopping $600 million in North America alone, only the seventh film in history to do so, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

For the fifth straight weekend, Marvel's Black Panther has held firm at the top of the domestic box office, adding a further $27 million to push its North American haul to $605.4 million.

Warner Bros.' "Tomb Raider" reboot debuted at No. 2, earning $23.5 million.

Lionsgate-Roadside Attractions' faith-based drama I Can Only Imagine outperformed forecasts with $17.1 million at 1,629 venues, notching the top per-screen average in the top 10 with $10,476.

Another new film earning the coveted "A+" from CinemaScore was the Fox release Love, Simon.

"Black Panther continues to astonish as it shows incredible strength fully five weeks into its fantastic run as it takes on another batch of notable newcomers and comes out on top", veteran box office tracker Paul Degarabedian says. Simon, starring Nick Robinson as a conflicted high schooler, notched an A+ CinemaScore with the audience, giving Fox execs hope for strong word of mouth and extended playability.

Even after six weeks of release, there is still no stopping Black Panther.

"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. By the end of its run, it could possibly surpass Jurassic World and Titanic to move into third (all pre-inflation, of course).
