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

'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.

LeBron James blames Cavaliers' woes on team injuries
Buddy Hield scored 18 points, while former Nuggets player Kosta Koufos chipped in 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Kings. However, even James' efforts weren't enough in the crucial third quarter as the Lakers turned the game into a rout.

Also new over the weekend, Aviron Pictures' "Strangers: Prey at Night" opened in third place with $10.4 million. Even without the $26.2 million grossed overseas, the family film is doing fairly well compared to its $50 million budget, and Sony might want to start considering its sequel options.

"The Hurricane Heist", from Entertainment Studios, opened with weekend sales of $3 million, missing forecasts of $5 million.

However it has a Rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes, earning an aggregated score of 42%.

It fared slightly better than Nash Edgerton's action-comedy Gringo, starring David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron, Joel Edgerton and Sharlto Copley, which took in just $2.6 million in 2,404 theaters or around $1,000 per theater.
