Worldwide, Black Panther is now the twelfth-highest grossing movie ever with $1.24 billion after adding another $12.9 million in 57 markets.

LOS ANGELES-Smash-'em up blockbuster "Pacific Rim: Uprising" sent shockwaves through the North American box office this weekend, claiming the top spot with takings of $28 million, industry estimates showed other day.

Overseas, Pacific Rim brought in an estimated $122.5 million in 61 markets including a $65 million debut in China where the original movie did so well back in 2013. The film stars John Boyega as Jake Pentecost, the son of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) from the original movie, along with returning stars Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Burn Gorman, and series newcomers Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, Adria Arjona, and Zhang Jin.

On a worldwide gross basis, Black Panther now sits No. 12 with $1.239B, having passed The Fate of the Furious at $1.236B.

Pacific Rim Uprising had an uphill climb from the get-go, considering that the first film was an overall disappointment at the domestic box office. The film, starring Bella Thorne, Patrick Schwarzenegger and Rob Riggle, was financed by the Boies/Schiller Film Group.

In third place with the best hold in the top 10 was the Christian biopic I Can Only Imagine which added 624 screens and fell only 19% to an estimated $13.8M bringing its total to a heavenly $38M with the Easter holidays just around the corner. It's very rewarding to be No.1 at the box office and to dethrone the former champion is obviously satisfying. The film's two-week domestic total now sits at just above $38M. That figure tops the $623.4 million achieved by "Marvel's The Avengers" and establishes "Black Panther" as the highest-grossing superhero film of all-time.

Paramount Pictures released Sherlock Gnomes, the sequel to the Disney animated hit Gnomeo and Juliet, but it disappointed with its est. The first film grossed $25.4 million by comparison, and Sherlock Gnomes is the lowest start for a wide-release animated film since The Star hit $9.8 million in November.

Warner Bros' Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander took fifth place with $10.4 million, down 56% from its opening with $41.7 million grossed in North America so far. It should end its domestic run at $85 million and will need more global money to make back its $100 million budget.

Universal and Legendary's Pacific Rim Uprising landed a respectable US$28 million (RM109.69 million) opening weekend at 3,708 locations. "A Wrinkle in Time", $8 million. 7. "I Can Only Imagine", $13.8 million. 4.
