Black Panther held strong in first place for its third consecutive weekend at the domestic box office, earning an estimated $65.7 million.
In addition to having the third highest-grossing third weekend ever—behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($90.2 million) and Avatar ($68.5 million)—Black Panther is the third movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to retain its first place spot at the box office for three weekends in a row. The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier are the only two other MCU films to do the same.
The current domestic total for Black Panther stands at $501.1 million, making it the 10th highest-grossing film of all time, unadjusted for inflation. It’s also now the second highest-grossing MCU movie domestically, only behind The Avengers ($623.4 million).
Placing second this weekend was Red Sparrow, which debuted with an estimated $17 million. The Jennifer Lawrence-led film earned a “B” CinemaScore. Check out IGN’s review of Red Sparrow for our thoughts on the film, and find out how it compares to the CinemaScores of Lawrence’s other movies.
This weekend also brought with it the debut of Death Wish, which placed third with an estimated $13 million. Read IGN’s Death Wish review to find out why it’s a “shallow action thriller that decides, early on, that vigilante violence is awesome, and has few (if any) negative consequences.”
