‘Wrinkle in Time’ Fails to Dethrone ‘Black Panther’ in Theaters
Ava DuVernay’s highly anticipated A Wrinkle in Time failed to defeat Disney and Marvel’s Black Panther in its opening weekend, pulling in a lower-than-expected $33.3 million. Black Panther, meanwhile, continued to reach new heights in its fourth weekend, earning $41.1 million to surpass the $1 billion mark worldwide. With a domestic total of $562 million, the film has become the No. 2 superhero movie behind The Avengers. It also won the third-biggest 24-day total ever, behind only The Last Jedi and The Force Awakens.
