Wakanda crushed the competition with an estimated $66.3 million in its third weekend at the box office. Black Panther has been nothing short of a runaway success for Disney and Marvel. The film has made an estimated $915 million worldwide so far, and shows no signs of slowing down. The two newcomers to the top ten, Jennifer Lawrence's Red Sparrow and Bruce Willis' Death Wish remake, finished in 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Red Sparrow brought in $16.9 million, while Death Wish raked in $13.0 million. Both films will struggle next week with four additional wide releases being added to theaters.
Former box office champ Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is still kicking the tires and finished in the top ten in its 11th week at the box office. Jumanji claimed the 7th spot with an estimated $4.4 million. All the while, Hugh Jackman's The Greatest Showman, also in its 11th week at the box office, managed to claim the 9th spot with an estimated $2.7 million. This will likely be the last weekend in the top ten for the incredibly popular musical, which has earned a remarkable $375 million worldwide.
Next weekend will see the wide release of four new films with Disney's A Wrinkle in Time leading the pack. Gringo, The Hurricane Heist, and Strangers: Prey at Night are the other three and they will all fare poorly against Disney's dominance.
