The Marvelmovie becomes the first film to top the box office for five straight weeks since "Avatar" in 2009.
The Ryan Coogler-helmed comic book movie, the MCUs first led by a black superhero character, is still doing big money overseas as well, but with Chinese audiences dwindling substantially in its second weekend in their country, the worldwide box office (now at $1.2 billion) won't come anywhere close to the likes of Avatar and Titanic or even The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Directed by Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug, the 90-million rebooted "Tomb Raider" stars Swedish actress Alicia Vikander as the archaeologist adventurer Lara Croft.
Black Panther is also the #2 MCU movie domestically with $605.4 million and will shortly pass The Avengers ($623.357 million) to become the best-grossing MCU movie of all time in the U.S. Before "Avatar", the last film to do it was 1999′s "The Sixth Sense". Worldwide, "Black Panther" has grossed more than $1.1 billion.
Black Panther's weekend haul of $27M was enough to garner it a rare fifth consecutive week at the number one spot. "To everyone who celebrated the release by watching, dressing up, singing in the cinemas and enjoying the film across social media, a very big thank you from all of us at Disney and Marvel Studios".
Warner Bros.' "Tomb Raider" opened in second place with an estimated 23.52 million dollars this weekend.

Black Panther and Tomb Raider will next go up against the Pacific Rim sequel which is tracking in the low $20M range. It stars J. Michael Finley as the singer behind one of the most popular Christian songs, by the band MercyMe. The film stars Nick Robinson in what would be a classic love story - except that it is the first romantic comedy from a mainstream studio to be told from a gay teen's perspective.
