'Black Panther' Tops Box Office for Fifth Straight Week

Kendrick Lamar All The Stars

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

The comic-book adaptation "Black Panther" is No. 1 at the North American box office for a fifth weekend, earning an additional $27 million in receipts, BoxOfficeMojo.com said Sunday.

Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman as the superhero king of a utopian African country, has nearly singlehandedly kept the year's box office total slightly above the same period last year.

Elsewhere, the horror film The Strangers: Prey at Night fell to eighth place this weekend earning just $4.8 million, bringing its two-week total to $18.6 million as it looks poised to leave the top ten this coming weekend given its precipitous drop. It easily fended off a challenge from Warner Bros.

Taking the No. 2 spot this week with a subpar USA debut is "Tomb Raider", bringing in an estimated $23.5 million.

Duterte spokesman Harry Roque said local authorities will investigate crimes and that there is no need for ICC involvement. The ICC in February began examining alleged crimes committed during the controversial anti-drugs crackdown.

The reboot, co-starring Dominic West and Kristin Scott Thomas, netted $23.6 million. It stars J. Michael Finley as the singer behind one of the most popular Christian songs, by the band MercyMe.

Carr also stars in the upcoming thriller "Breaking In" with award-winning actress Gabrielle Union.

Amazingly, the low budget movie beat Disney's big-budget A Wrinkle In Time, which landed in fourth with an estimated $16.56 million in its second week on release.

The story of a girl's search through time and space for her missing father - starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine - has been a critical and commercial flop.

And in fifth place was new Fox release "Love, Simon", at $11.5 million. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is the first film released in 2001 and opened with $47.7 million.
