For Black Panther, that means the historic movie has now taken in more than $600 million at the domestic box office!

"'Black Panther' continues to astonish as it shows incredible strength fully five weeks into its unbelievable run as it takes on another batch of notable newcomers and comes out on top", said Paul Degarabedian, senior media analyst with comScore.

Next weekend will find Black Panther facing off against the romantic drama Midnight Sun starring Bella Thorne and Patrick Schwarzenegger; the animated sequel, Sherlock Gnomes; and the thriller, Unsane, with Claire Foy. The groundbreaking Marvel movie made $27 million in local theaters, while the Warner Bros. and MGM partneredreboot is at $23.5 million. "Tomb Raider" was no. 1 overseas, grossing $84.5 million, including a $41.1 million in China. We may have to wait for Steven Speilberg's Ready Player One before we see a new face at the top of the North American Box office. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war. With "Black Panther" still showing in its fifth weekend, though, the Marvel movie still came out on top - an fantastic feat only matched by "Avatar".


"Black Panther" has totaled a stunning $605.4 million in 31 days. This is kind of underwhelming for a movie that cost well over $90 million to make not including marketing costs. "But a lot of movies do it and it doesn't work as well".

Gay teen romance Love, Simon debuted with $11.5 million to come in fifth. The film garnered strong reviews (91 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences agreed, giving it an A-plus CinemaScore. "I feel great that we had the kind of exit polls that we did", said Chris Aronson, distribution chief for Fox. After launch in some Asian territories during the last weekend, it has earned over $14 million.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at USA and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Final three-day domestic figures will be released Monday.
