"Black Panther" Unstoppable, Even Against Disney's "A Wrinkle in Time"

A Wrinkle In Time

Coogler also highlighted DuVernay's passion for equality and how she made sure that women directors and creatives were hired during the creation of her TV series, Queen Sugar and her searing Netflix documentary, 13th. While Ryan Coogler's Black Panther continues on its unstoppable domination of cinemas worldwide - it passed the $1 billion in box office takings at the weekend - Ava Duvernay's A Wrinkle in Time took $33.3 million during its opening weekend, which is enough to make it the second highest-grossing film in American cinema at the moment. "She makes the most distant dreams and ideas a reality", he wrote.

Director Ava DuVernay became the first black woman to helm a movie with a budget in excess of $100 million.

The opening of Aviron Pictures' "The Strangers: Prey at Night" led the rest of the pack in third with $10.4 million at 2,464 venues.

The PG-rated film was directed by Ava DuVernay and stars Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and Chris Pine. That's just about half what the original The Strangers movie did when released by Rogue Pictures in 2008, and the sequel's "C" CinemaScore does not bode well for its future.

Black Panther, however, has swiftly become the highest-grossing film of the year both in the U.S. and internationally, outstripping its nearest rival, Fifty Shades Freed, by a multiple of five.

Jennifer Lawrence's smutty spy thriller 'Red Sparrow' took a beating at the box office over its second week. $8.2 million, down nearly 52% from its opening weekend with $31.1 million grossed so far. The family-friendly Peter Rabbit finished in the sixth spot with $6.8 million to bring its five-week total to $93.5 million.

Bruce Willis' Death Wish dropped 49% and four places with $6.6 million and $23.9 million grossed so far. "We're feeling good about this start". The wide release of "Hidden Figures", starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae, opened at no. 1 in January of the same year with $22.8 million.
