Box Office Round Up - 3-19-2018

For the fifth consecutive week Black Panther dominated the box office. Coming in number one with a $27 million take this weekend. The film is the third film in history to be number one over five straight weeks; Avatar and The Sixth Sense are the other two.

Shattering some more records this weekend -- the third fastest film to reach $500 million domestic, the tenth largest grossing domestic film of all time, third highest grossing comic book adaptation, and number 47 in the highest grossing films of all time. Expect the film to hit $1 billion world wide in the next couple weeks, and my gloating to become insufferable (if it hasn’t already).
