Weekend Box Office: 'Pacific Rim 2' Cuts Down 'Black Panther'

Weekend Box Office: 'Pacific Rim 2' Cuts Down 'Black Panther'”

Pacific Rim Uprising's Global debut netted the franchise a whopping $151 Million, it was enough to disrupt the dominant reign of Black Panther at the box office.

Although "Pacific Rim Uprising" managed to rise as a new champion on the chart, the movie opened with a softer debut than its predecessor which bowed to $37.3 million when it was released in July 2013. Pacific Rim Uprising also opened in China, where Legendary East is releasing the film, and it is on track to gross $65 million there, for an overseas total of $122.5 million already.

Black Panther pulled in another US$16 million, good for second place.

Meanwhile, despite Black Panther slipping to second in North America, Marvel is celebrating a box office milestone with the Ryan Coogler-directed solo film having overtaken The Avengers to become the highest-grossing superhero movie of all time in the United States.

"Sherlock Gnomes", Paramount's chipper computer-animated comedy about a garden doll version of the Arthur Conan Doyle detective, made $10.6 million - a steep decline compared with its predecessor, "Gnomeo & Juliet", which made $25.3 million upon its opening in 2011.

I Can Only Imagine was Third with $13.8 Million. The sequel clocks in cheaper at $150 million, and Deadline is reporting that the Steven S. DeKnight-helmed movie will need to hit around $350 million globally to break even. Domestically, it dropped steeply in its second week, sliding 56 per cent with $10.4 million.

Pacific Rim Uprising is a 2018 American science fiction film, directed by Steven S. DeKnight (in his feature-film directorial debut) and written by DeKnight, Emily Carmichael, Kira Snyder, and T.S. Nowlin.

The results were also modest for Steven Soderbergh's "Unsane", a psychological thriller starring Claire Foy ("The Crown") that the director shot with iPhones.

Following I Can Only Imagine's success, biblical drama Paul, Apostle of Christ opened in line with estimates with US$5 million at 1,473 sites over Palm Sunday weekend. Fox Searchlight, coming off its best-picture win at the Academy Awards for "The Shape of Water", carefully selected the opening-weekend theatres to cater to Anderson's die-hard fans. The film's two-week domestic total now sits at just above $38M. "Isle of Dogs", about a Japanese island of misfit canines in a future dystopia, has been received with almost equal fanfare. It got panned by critics and received a B CinemaScore. "It's pretty much Wes". Final three-day domestic figures will be released Monday.
