Pacific Rim Uprising Tops Black Panther

Pacific Rim Uprising Tops Black Panther

Pacific Rim Uprising is king at the box office.

The sequel to the 2013 movie actually out performed estimates and expectations as it opened to $28 million, which was enough to topple Black Panther‘s #1 streak of five consectuve weeks, as Marvel’s Black Panther grossed $17 million.

Pacific Rim Uprising is currently at near $31 million in the U.S. with another $122.4 million internationally for a current worldwide gross of $152,682,460, which means the movie already passed its budget (not including marketing).

The first Pacific Rim finished with $411 million worldwide, so the sequel looks to land somewhere around there, which should be considered a win.
