Dropping just 33.8%, Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther topped the box office for the fifth weekend in a row, becoming just the third film (in addition to Avatar and The Sixth Sense ) to do so in the past 19 years.
Finally a week with plenty of great offerings ranging from the most expensive superhero film ever made to the winner of this year’s “Best Picture” Oscar, along with the Oscar-winning I, Tonya , James Franco’s ultimate “meta” film, The Disaster Artist , and the powerful third season of Fear the Walking Dead .
Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther became the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to top the box office for four straight weeks, and the first film of any kind to accomplish that feat since Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
This week’s home entertainment releases include Taika Waititi's fun-loving Thor: Ragnarok, Greta Gerwig's critically acclaimed slice-of-life drama Lady Bird, an underrated holiday film, the first season of Donald Glover's innovative Atlanta TV series, and two fascinating documentaries, one from the BBC and another from pioneering female director Agnes Varda.
