Weekend Box Office: 'Wrinkle in Time' Flattened by 'Panther'

  • 'Black Panther' tops box office with $41.1 million

He spent the rest of the ode showing his appreciation for A Wrinkle in Time.

He went on to discuss the early days of DuVernay's career as an admired Hollywood publicist, noting she'd written, produced, and directed "two unbelievable films, about black women finding hope while experiencing grief and loss, all while maintaining a production and distribution company to finance and distribute underserved independent films made by women and people of color".

Despite looking it like A Wrinkle in Time will do okay at the box office, reviews for the movie haven't been as kind, as it now ranks at 42% among critics on Rotten Tomatoes, while Metacritic has it scored at 53. Disney's A Wrinkle in Time debuted in second place with an estimated opening weekend tally of $33.3 million. Either way, it's too early to call A Wrinkle in Time a loss, and it's still an impressive achievement as the first $100+ million-budgeted feature to be directed by a woman of color. It's based on the 1962 novel by Madeleine L'Engle about a young girl who explores the cosmos in search of her father.

The main cast includes Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Zach Galifianakis and Michael Peña.

Overall domestic box office was $137 million, down 17 per cent from the same weekend a year ago when "Kong: Skull Island" opened with $61 million. MGM's second weekend of "Death Wish" followed in seventh with $6.6 million at 2,882 sites to give the Bruce Willis reboot almost $24 million in 10 days. Its 82-day total has hit a remarkable $397.3 million, good enough for the 30th spot on the all-time domestic list. Warner Bros.is also launching action-adventure "Tomb Raider", starring Alicia Vikander, in around 3,600 locations.
