Though it has grossed $96 million in two weeks of release in China, Black Panther slid steeply in its second weekend.

For what it's worth, "Tomb Raider" has a 49 percent on the Tomatometer, making it one of the better-reviewed films that draws its inspiration from a video game - although that isn't saying much.

Black Panther remained atop the box office for a fifth week in a row, a feat that no movie has pulled off since Avatar opened in 2009. Unfortunately for Warner Bros. and its attempt at reviving the Tomb Rider franchise, though, this means their feature opened in second place with a less than stellar $23.5 million.

Winning the domestic box office this weekend with an estimated $27.02 million, according to boxofficepro, it marks the movie's fifth-straight week atop at No. 1. With its overseas takings, the movie has now crossed more than $1.1 billion.

"Vikander is perfectly cast in the role inhabited by Angelina Jolie in the 2001 film "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" and the 2003 sequel", wrote movie analyst Paul Dergarabedian at comScore in an email to Xinhua. Like "I Can Only Imagine", the teen gay rom-com was a huge hit with its core audience and scored an A+ on CinemaScore; but it has also earned critical acclaim with a 90 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.

"Black Panther continues to astonish as it shows incredible strength fully five weeks into its fantastic run as it takes on another batch of notable newcomers and comes out on top", said Paul Degarabedian, senior media analyst with comScore.

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. "Black Panther" was written and directed by Ryan Coogler, the film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

Directed by Andrew Erwin and Jon Erwin, the film stars J. Michael Finley as Bart Millard who is the lead singer of the Christian band MercyMe. "Love, Simon" was directed by Greg Berlanti, the film stars Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner, and Josh Duhamel. Love, Simon cost $17 million to produce.
