Black Panther sits at 97% on Rotten Tomatoes with 349 Fresh to only 11 Rotten. Box office expert Scott Mendelson of Forbes theorizes that some of Love, Simon's target audience bought tickets to other movies. According to Box Office Mojo, Black Panther has become the 14th biggest grossing film worldwide and it's still going strong. The last movie that performed like that has been the mega-hit "Avatar", which came out eight years ago and grabbed the top spot in the box office charts for five consecutive weekends.

"Black Panther" made $28.5 million in its 5th weekend to close with $606 million so far in the United States. The Disney film brought in $16.6 million and has now passed $60 million domestically. And it's likely to eventually pass "Jurassic World" at $652.3 million for fourth place and "Titanic" at $659 million for third place.

The weekend's overall box office took in about $130 million, down 50 percent from the same weekend previous year when Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" opened with $174.5 million. This puts it at a tie with Avatar (2010), which also holds a five consecutive weekend record at the top of the US box-office. Recent tracking for the "Pacific Rim" sequel has been in the $20 million to $30 million range while "Sherlock Gnomes" was in the $13 million to $18 million range. The family-friendly Peter Rabbit added $5.2 million over the weekend to brings its six-week total to $102.4 million. Sony is projecting $1.65 million for the weekend from 1,556 locations for a total of $400.27 million.

"Black Panther" has now made $605 million domestically, making it the second-fastest movie to reach $600 million behind "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".
