We now know which movie earns the distinction of ending the streak of "Black Panther" as No. 1 at the box office.

Legendary and Universal's Pacific Rim Uprising dethrone Black Panther at the domestic box office upon opening to a mild $28-M from 2,850 theaters over the weekend.

"Pacific Rim: Uprising" took the top-spot from Disney/Marvel this weekend, bringing in over $28M across 3,708 locations nationwide. Although the Pacific Rim sequel tops the USA box office in its opening weekend, it still pales in comparison to the Marvel film.

DeKnight who took over the duty from original "Pacific Rim" director Guillermo Del Toro, "Uprising" stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood and Rinko Kikuchi. Black Panther has earned $1.2 billion worldwide according to Digital Spy.

Pacific Rim Uprising had an uphill climb from the get-go, considering that the first film was an overall disappointment at the domestic box office.

Sherlock Gnomes is a 2018 3D computer-animated comedy film directed by John Stevenson.

Coming in at spot number three was faith-based drama I Can Only Imagine (weekend gross $13.8 million, total gross $38.3 million), which dropped less than 20% from its debut last weekend.

This week's box office report is not, however, without some very good (historic, in fact) news for the latter film. "Pacific Rim: Uprising" debuted there with $65 million for Legendary, which the Chinese conglomerate Wanda Group acquired in 2016. It brought in $16.7 million and has now reached $630 million domestically. That film faded fairly quickly ending up with only $101M domestically though it did make $309M internationally which may be the biggest reason why a sequel was greenlit.

The Marvel smash hit, starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o, has earned $631 million in the United States and Canada - overtaking "The Avengers" (2012) as the highest-grossing superhero film in USA history.

Other films in their opening week include Sherlock Gnomes with $10.6 million, Paul, Apostle of Christ with $5 Million and Midnight Sun raking in $4.1 million. The film will open wide in the coming weeks. "I Can Only Imagine", $13.8 million. 4.

Falling from second last week to fifth this time around was "Tomb Raider", a Warner Bros. adventure reboot starring Swedish actress Alicia Vikander as the fearless and ferocious Lara Croft. Speaking of films with much higher expectations, Disney's A Wrinkle in Time fell 50% in its third weekend to an estimated $8M bringing its cume up to $73.8M.

Love, Simon suffered a similar drop in its second week to those films, earning just $7.8 million capping its two-week total around $23.7 million.

Opening at #10 was young adult romance Midnight Sun, flopping with a mere $4.1 million.
