‘Red Sparrow’ Hardly Challenges ‘Black Panther’ at Box Office

Black Panther” still maintains its reign at the North American box office in its third week. The latest Marvel superhero flick raked in an estimated $65.7 million, which is the third-biggest third weekend of all time, behind “Avatar” ($69 million in 2010) and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” ($90 million in 2016).

The latest cume brings the movie’s domestic revenue to cross the $500 million mark domestically and its worldwide gross to nearly $900 million. The Ryan Coogler-directed blockbuster starring Chadwick Boseman is now the tenth biggest pic of all time domestically, not adjusted for inflation.

“Disney is clearly on a roll with ‘Black Panther’ showing incredible strength as it posts the third biggest third-weekend gross of all time,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore, adding, “and most notably becomes the 10th highest grossing movie of all time in North America after just 17 days in theaters.”

Two new releases this week hardly challenged “Black Panther” at the chart. Jennifer Lawrence-starring R-rated spy movie “Red Sparrow” debuted at No. 2 with an estimated $17 million from 3,056 theaters. Despite the lukewarm reception, the movie earned double than her last film “mother!” opening revenue and opened ahead of her sci-fi romance “Passengers (2016)” ($14 million).
