LOS ANGELES (AP) — Wakanda's reign over America shows no signs of waning. Black Panther is king of the US box office for the third- straight weekend.
Studio estimates yesterday say the Marvel movie brought in US$65 million this weekend, easily outpacing new releases Red Sparrow and Death Wish.
Black Panther has now grossed US$500 million domestically after three weeks of release. It's the third-fastest film to reach the US$500 million plateau and is now in the top 10 all time in US box office, not adjusted for inflation.
Fox's Red Sparrow, featuring Jennifer Lawrence as a Russian ballerina-turned-super-spy, earned US$17 million in its first weekend.
Death Wish, MGM's reboot of the Charles Bronson action franchise starring Bruce Willis, was third with US$13 million.
