The comic-book adaptation "Black Panther" is No. 1 at the North American box office for a fifth weekend, earning an additional $27 million in receipts, BoxOfficeMojo.com said Sunday.

"Black Panther" has become the first movie of the decade to top the box office for five weekends in a row.

The Marvel movie has, by now, tallied a domestic haul of $605.4 million, and a massive $1.182 billion in worldwide ticket sales, as the Hollywood Reporter noted. Also, it now trails Marvel's The Avengers by less than $20 million to become the highest grossing superhero movie of all time. I expect the film to have some success and remain in the top five for at least a couple weeks. The movie, starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, topped the global box office with $84.5 million from 65 markets ($41.1 million in China alone), which brings the overseas total to $102.5 million and worldwide tally to $126 million.

The surprise of the weekend was the Lionsgate-Roadside Attractions Christian drama "I Can Only Imagine", which grossed $17.1 million on 1,629 screens - less than half the number that "Black Panther", "Tomb Raider" and "A Winkle in Time" played on. The action adventure takes the number one spot at the worldwide box office with $84.5 million (GBP60.6 million) in earnings, which has helped push it over $100 million (GBP71.7 million) overseas. "To everyone who celebrated the release by watching, dressing up, singing in the cinemas and enjoying the film across social media, a very big thank you from all of us at Disney and Marvel Studios". Of course, no one could touch Black Panther... again...
