Despite a good attempt by Tomb Raider to derail Black Panther from the top of the US box office the Marvel mega smash manages a fifth weekend at the top.
No film in the US has spent this long at the top since Avatar in 2009 so this is kind of a big deal.
This weekend Panther takes $27 million which takes its total US gross to $605 million.
Coming in at number 2 this week, and the highest new film, is Tomb Raider, the new reboot following on from the rebooted games from a few years back.
Despite mainly positive reviews the film still only manages to gross half that of the Angelina Jolie movie from 2001.
The Alice Vikander version of the video game heroin takes $23.5 million on its opening weekend.
Faith based movie I Can Only Imagine is new at 3 and gets the highest per screen average on the charts and has far outstripped expectation, the film takes $17 million for the weekend.
Finishing off the top 5 is A Wrinkle in time at number 4 and sinking fast and Love, Simon which is new at number 5 this weekend.
Four weeks on top for Black Panther and seemingly no slowing down for the African set Marvel movie as it smashes the half billion barrier in US grosses.
A fourth weekend take of £41 million for Black Panther takes its total gross to £562 million and joins Star Wars: The Force Awakes to cross the half billion milestone.
Disney can't be too unhappy with the performance of Black Panther but their new muched hyped film A Wrinkle In Time manages a number 2 entry with £33 million.
Reviews have been mixed for the fantasy drama which is reflected in its opening weekend which reflects Disney's last attempt at fantasy drama Tomorrowland from 2015.
New at 3 is horror film Strangers Pray At Night which opens to £10 million while last weeks top new film Red Sparrow falls hard to number 4, Game Night finishes off the top 5.
The much hypes Disney movie A Wrinkle In Time gets a PG rating from the BBFC in the UK for mild threat.
Released in the UK on 23rd March the film stars big A list names suck as Cris Pine, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to name a few.
