“Black Panther” Holds Off “Tomb Raider,” “Wrinkle,” First Film Since “Avatar” to Score 5th Week at Number 1

All hail “Black Panther”!

T’Challa and friends are scoring their fifth week at number at the box office. “Black Panther” is the first film in 8 years —  since “Avatar” — to hold the top spot that long.

This means that both “Tomb Raider” and “A Wrinkle in Time” are finishing well below “BP” this weekend. The “Panther” will cross the $600 mi domestic line this weekend, soaring to $606 million.

“Tomb Raider” by the way took $9.1 million on Friday and actually beat “Panther”‘s $7.5 million– but not really. That $9.1 million included the Thursday previews of $2.1 million. So “Tomb Raider” really made $7 million on Friday.
