There's a new conqueror on North American box office. Black Panther slipped to second place with $16.6 million in its sixth frame this weekend, being dethroned by newcomer Pacific Rim Uprising, which won with an estimated $28 million. It is the sequel to the 2013 film Pacific Rim, with Guillermo del Toro, director of the original, serving as a producer. Pacific Rim: Uprising stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood and Cailee Spaeny. The film registered a B CinemaScore, well below the A- for the first film. You can take a look at the top 10 below, courtesy of Box Office Mojo, and check back on Tuesday for next weekend's predictions.
Pacific Rim Uprising's strong debut does little to diffract from its competitor. The movie has become the highest-grossing superhero movie in the USA, not adjusted for inflation.
Also opening this weekend was Paramount Pictures and MGM's animated comedy Sherlock Gnomes, which saw US$10 million at 3,662 locations.
U.S. and European Union to Expel More Than 100 Russian Diplomats
Russian Federation has denied responsibility, while accusing Britain of leading a global charge against it without proof. He said the Russian ambassador in Dublin has been informed that one diplomat from his embassy must leave Ireland .
Directed by Andrew Hyatt, the film also stars Jim Caviezel, Olivier Martinez, Joanne Whalley, and John Lynch.
Per studio estimates, "Pacific Rim Uprising" will close the weekend with $28.0 million in receipts. The performance is nearly spot on with Edge of Tomorrow, which was one of our pre-weekend comparisons and went on to gross just over $100 million domestically, a number the studio would likely be more than happy with as it would only be ~$2 million shy of the first film's domestic performance.
Facing formidable competition from I Can Only Imagine, Sony/Affirm's faith-based film Paul, Apostle of Christ only managed an eighth-place finish in its debut, earning $5 million from 1,473 theaters. That includes $65 million from its opening in China, bringing its worldwide box office total to $150 million. Tomb Raider has grossed $211 million globally so far, so it's not a complete disaster, but I wouldn't expect a sequel any time soon. This weekend, Tomb Raider only made $10.4 million for a domestic total that now stands at $41.7 million. "A Wrinkle in Time", $8 million. 7.
Trump Will Not Hire These Lawyers In Russia Probe
He added that "fame & fortune will NEVER be turned down by a lawyer", though he did acknowledge that "some are conflicted". Just hours before Trump went on Twitter to boast that he has no problem recruiting lawyers to his team.
Unfortunately for Sherlock Gnomes, it doesn't seem likely to have the staying power that allowed The Star to quadruple its opening weekend. "Black Panther", $16.7 million ($12.9 million international). 3.
Love, Simon held on reasonably well in its second weekend slipping 34% to an estimated $7.8M, bringing its total up to $24M. We'll have to see if business picks up for the upcoming Good Friday and Easter weekend.
"Midnight Sun" starts at #10 with $4.1 million, while "Unsane" grabs #11 thanks to an opening weekend haul of $3.9 million. And finally the highly anticipated animated film from Wes Anderson, Isle of Dogs, opened to an estimated $1.57M from only 27 screens for a per screen average of an awesome $58k.

Zoet should have done better but that will not impact on Southgate's pleasure at what Lingard could offer in Russian Federation . We are going to have to get used to them taking risks in that area of the pitch, because that's the way we want to play.
