Pacific Rim: Uprising fails to live up to the original
The action-packed sequel knocked "Black Panther" from number one after five straight weeks, according to industry tracker Exhibitor Relations, but the film attracted mixed reviews and fell short of "Pacific Rim's" $37.3 million debut in 2013. Although the Pacific Rim sequel tops the US box office in its opening weekend, it still pales in comparison to the Marvel film. Pacific Rim: Uprising stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood and Cailee Spaeny.
Pacific Rim Uprising is a 2018 American science fiction film, directed by Steven S. DeKnight (in his feature-film directorial debut) and written by DeKnight, Emily Carmichael, Kira Snyder, and T.S. Nowlin.
Save for "Pacific Rim Uprising" (and perhaps "Paul" due to the lower-profile nature of its release), the newcomers all rank as disappointing performers.
Black Panther pulled in another US$16 million, good for second place. The movie has become the highest-grossing superhero movie in the USA, not adjusted for inflation.
China launches crude oil futures trading By 11:14 a.m. (0314 GMT), 3,599 lots of the most-active June contract had traded, equivalent to 3.6 million barrels of crude. The number of active USA oil rigs rose to a three-year high of 804 last week , implying further rises in future production.
The animated film "Sherlock Gnomes" opened with $10.6 million for fourth place. According to Hollywood Report, Pacific Rim 2 has a troubling start for a film that cost $155 million to produce. This makes the film the highest grossing comic book adaptation of all time.
The faith-based film "I Can Only Imagine" made $13.8 million in its second week to finish in third place. Falling from second last week to fifth this was "Tomb Raider", a Warner Bros. adventure reboot starring Swedish actress Alicia Vikander as the fearless and ferocious Lara Croft. "Black Panther" also becomes the fifth highest grossing film of all-time, rising above "Star Wars: The Last Jedi". That includes $65 million from its opening in China, bringing its worldwide box office total to $150 million. It isn't doing much better overseas with another $2.3 million and just $14.1 million total in just 31% of global territories. "We know that audiences want to see it".
Unfortunately for Sherlock Gnomes, it doesn't seem likely to have the staying power that allowed The Star to quadruple its opening weekend. 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.
A Wrinkle in Time, Love, Simon, Paul, Apostle of Christ, Game Night, and Midnight Sun rounded out the top ten respectively. Midnight Sun opened in tenth place with $4.1 million and the new thriller Unsane finished in eleventh place with $2.8 million. Debuting in limited release was Fox Searchlight's Isle of Dogs, which earned $1.5 million from 27 theaters for an impressive $58,148 per-screen average, Final Portrait which earned $28,214 from three theaters for a $9,405 per-screen average and Getting Grace which took in $107,676 from 60 theaters for a dismal $1,795 per-screen average.
