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.
This week marks a bit of a mile stone in film global grosses, Despicable Me 3 goes over $1 billion, the first of the series to do so, this means now the top 30 top global grossing movies have all grossed over $1 Billion.
The first movie to do so was Titanic back in 1998 and was the only film to do so for a long time, that film had another bite of the cherry in 2012 and its gross is now over $2 billion.
The next film to do it was The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King in 2003, since then we have had at least one film a year do the fate.
The oldest film to go over $1 Billion is Jurassic Park from 1993, but again that had another go in 2011 which pushed it over the mark, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace similarly did the same.
To date only 3 film have gone to $2 Billion, Avatar (the top grossing movie of all time), Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The next milestone will be the top 50 all over a billion, which at the current rate will be some time in 2020/21, and then of course we look forward to the next Star Wars film going over the $2 Billion mark!.
There was only ever going to be one winner on this week video chart and that is the massive phenomenon that is Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The seventh film in the Star Wars saga was a world wide smash when it was released in December of 2016, we knew it would be big but not how big.
On its release in the UK The Force Awaken became the second highest opening gross of all time in the UK, beaten by Spectre which had a 5 day opening compared to The Force Awakens 4 day.
A four week spell at the top of the box office saw the film take over £60 million in that time, a total of 11 weeks on the box office saw the film become the biggest grossing film in the UK ever with over £122 million.
The film is still on release and has to date grossed nearly £123 million.
Across the globe the film did amazingly well and was the fast film to gross $500 million, then $1 billion and even $1.5 billion.
Bets were on that is might become the top grossing film of all time and take over Avatar but it didn't have the legs and is currently the second highest grossing film ever with $2.07 million.
In its fourth week of release The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 falls from the top into second place.
One other new film this week in the shape of The Survivalist which enters the video chart at number 17.
At the world box office this week King Fu Panda 3 makes an impressive debut at the top of the box office from 7 countries.
making a world wide debut of $116 million the film leads the pack by quite a considerable margin with the US being the top market the film was released in.
Falling a single place this week is The Revenant which falls to number 2 with $36 million, this brings the Oscar nominated films world gross to $274.7 million, and Oscar is still to come.
Highest total grossing film is still Star Wars: The Force Awakens which this weeks adds $23.3 million bringing its total gross now to over $2 Billion, only the third film ever to do so.
Avatar was the first with Titanic following, interestingly both these film took a second release to do it, although with Titanic it was years later unlike Avatar which was a year later.
Here is the full world wide box office top 10:
Despite the fact that it is very slowly starting to slow down The Force Awakens manages another week at the top without too much of a challenge.
Its lowest weekend gross since release the seventh Star Wars film takes $72.4 million across the globe which brings its total to $1.8 billion dollars, $2 billion is just around the corner.
The film is the number 3 top grossing film and on current form could even struggle to become the second top grossing film, it has Avatar and Titanic in its way and the $2.8 billion of Avatar seems out of reach now.
Top new film is Ride Along 2 which is new at 3 with a $42 million opening weekend from 12 countries, the USA being the best of those.
Top grossing film on the world box office this weekend is The Force Awakens, and lets face it it will be until it leaves the chart.
