'Red Sparrow' is no box office match for 'Black Panther'

Irene MckinneyMar 06, 2018

Discussing topics like diversity, tradition and worldwide cooperation, Black Panther breaks more barriers than just the make-up of its cast.

Death Wish skewed male (57 percent), and played even older than Red Sparrow, with 30% of ticket buyers 35 and older.

As if the technologically advanced, vibranium-rich country of Wakanda needed any more gold for its coffers, Black Panther is now looking more likely to cross the magical $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office.

Marvel films have touched on ethical arguments in the past, like privacy versus safety or weapons development, but "Black Panther" goes beyond all of that. The movie isn't entirely black however Andy Serkis and Martin Freeman both play an essential role in the film's story.

Also, Sony Pictures Classics opens the Israeli film Foxtrot, which is up for best foreign-language feature, in select cinemas timed to the Oscars.

The animated-comedy "Peter Rabbit" bounced to fifth-place overall, the film brought-in $10M across 3,607 locations, raising the film's four-week total to just over $84M after four weeks. In its third weekend, the film has grossed $56.2 million in most global markets. The movie has positioned itself for a chance at crossing the $1 billion threshold, a massive milestone that was being floated by analysts and critics in the past couple of weeks. "Red Sparrow" was directed by Francis Lawrence, the film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, and Matthias Schoenaerts.

Two new films opened opposite Black Panther - Red Sparrow, an action-thriller starring Lawrence, and Willis' Death Wish remake. The success of Black Panther will be analyzed and evaluated for years to come as others try to duplicate this film's performance.

Game Night dropped two spots to fourth place with $10.7 million. The Fox title has totaled $211.2 million internationally.

Paramount's sci-fi thriller Annihilation took a plunge in its second weekend, taking in $1.5 million Friday on its way to $5 million for the weekend, down 55% from its opening weekend. One of Marvel's best villains is now, so far as the internet is concerned, also its best otaku.

The top ten films grossed an estimated $134.1M this weekend which was down 20% from previous year when Loganopened at number one with $88.4M; and down 6% from 2016 when Zootopiadebuted in the top spot with $75.1M.
