'Black Panther,' 4 weeks in, tops 'A Wrinkle in Time'

On Saturday, the film surpassed the $1 billion mark globally, the 16th Disney release to reach that milestone and the fifth Marvel Cinematic Universe picture to do so.

That Ryan Coogler-directed blockbuster maintained its box office dominance for the fourth week running, adding an estimated $41.1 million to its domestic earnings, above analysts' expectations of $35 million, and raising its cumulative ticket sales to $562 million, according to the measurement firm ComScore.

Today the talented director checked into The Breakfast Club to talk about getting into the game at a "late" age, getting Sade to cut a song for the soundtrack to A Wrinkle In Time, and why she passed on directing Black Panther.

"When you think about having two films at the top of the box office, it's definitely a win all around", said Disney's worldwide theatrical distribution president Dave Hollis.

If our beliefs paralyze us from participating in the systems, what good are they? "Most numbers like that are from films that opened in the summer or holiday season. So we feel great on all fronts". The film, which cost around $103 million to produce, received mixed reviews from critics and audiences who gave it a B CinemaScore.
