Pacific Rim Uprising Takes Down Black Panther

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

It has become the highest grossing superhero movie of all-time.

Legendary and Universal's Pacific Rim Uprising dethrone Black Panther at the domestic box office upon opening to a mild $28-M from 2,850 theaters over the weekend. Pacific Rim: Uprising, Black Panther, I Can Only Imagine, Sherlock Gnomes and Tomb Raider ($10.4 million) occupy the first to sixth position at the box office.

Uprising, the follow-up to Guillermo del Toro's 2013 blockbuster, grossed $122.5 million, including a solid $64 million in China - the market that served as the biggest home to the original film, and the main reason we got this sequel in the first place. The sequel was directed by Steven S. DeKnight and stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Rinko Kikuchi, and Charlie Day. You can take a look at the top 10 below, courtesy of Box Office Mojo, and check back on Tuesday for next weekend's predictions.

The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.

Meanwhile, Black Panther settled for #2 with a still-great $16.7 million sixth weekend. The movie has become the highest-grossing superhero movie in the USA, not adjusted for inflation.

Fourth place went to newly-released "Sherlock Gnomes", taking $10.6 million.

Jesse Lingard scored his first England goal as a reshaped side beat the Netherlands 1-0 in an Amsterdam friendly on Friday. Explaining the reasoning behind the positional switch, he said: "He has the attributes to play the position really well".

Per studio estimates, "Pacific Rim Uprising" will close the weekend with $28.0 million in receipts.

The original Pacific Rim grossed just over $100 million domestically and it seems that this film will probably have a gross just under $100 million. That number is down just 38% from last weekend's take, and puts the film at $630.9 million domestically and $1.237 billion worldwide.

Even at No. 2, the Korean romantic movie, starring So Ji-sub and Son Ye-jin, remained strong, adding 576,981 ticket sales in its second weekend to its cumulative total of 1.82 million. It should finish off domestically with around $35 million, and on a $59 million budget that won't be a money-making total. $5 million in 1,473 theaters or $3,394 per venue. It should end its domestic run at $85 million and will need more global money to make back its $100 million budget. "I Can Only Imagine", $13.8 million. 4. "We know that audiences want to see it". Other films that debuted in theaters this week include the YA "Midnight Sun", and the religious drama "Paul, Apostle of Christ".

"Midnight Sun" starts at #10 with $4.1 million, while "Unsane" grabs #11 thanks to an opening weekend haul of $3.9 million.

Soderbergh's film had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival in February, as did Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs, which pranced into 27 theaters over the weekend.
