Home Movies UPDATED “Black Panther” Holds Off “Tomb Raider,” “Wrinkle,” First Film Since “Avatar”...

SUNDAY MORNING: “Black Panther” is number 1 for the weekend with $27 million. “Tomb Raider” came in at $23 million at number 2. “Tomb Raider” cost $100 million, so unless by a miracle it takes off internationally, it’s going to be a big disappointment. “Wrinkle in Time”  has faded fast. 

 

SATURDAY MORNING: 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.

I don’t know why Thursday previews are still counted as part of Friday opening nights. It’s completely ridiculous. If we really did it that way, “Black Panther” made over $1q million on ‘Friday’ including its Thursday $3.6 million!

Hollywood, makes no sense!
