The 18th release in Marvel's Cinematic Universe of superhero movies has earned $605 million in the United States and Canada, according to box office tracker Exhibitor Relations, and is the first film since "Avatar" (2009) to chalk up five consecutive top spots. The last movie that performed like that has been the mega-hit "Avatar", which came out eight years ago and grabbed the top spot in the box office charts for five consecutive weekends. It is the first movie since Avatar to be at the top of the domestic box office for five straight weeks.

The newly released "Tomb Raider", an adventure reboot starring Swedish actress Alicia Vikander as the fearless and ferocious Lara Croft. That was good enough for third place, just ahead of Disney's A Wrinkle in Time, which, after bad reviews, lost more than half of its box office and made only $16.5 million domestically, good for about $61 million after ten days of release and fourth place.

"I Can Only Imagine" doubled expectations by sticking to the typical tactic of "faith-based" releases with a grassroots marketing effort that focused on Southern, Southwestern and suburban moviegoers.

This weekend Panther takes $27 million which takes its total U.S. gross to $605 million.

Black Panther shows no signs of slowing down a month after its release.

Fox's launch of gay teen comedy-drama "Love, Simon" took fifth with $11.5 million at 2,402 venues, amid strong support from critics with a 91 percent "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The family-friendly Peter Rabbit added $5.2 million over the weekend to brings its six-week total to $102.4 million.

Next weekend sees the release of Pacific Rim Uprising and Isle of Dogs, which will surely shake things up at the weekend box-office yet again. Red Sparrow continues to do middling business with $4.5 million over the weekend, to raise its, we assume, disappointing three-week total to $39.6 million.
