Daily Box Office Report
Tuesday, March 20, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Disney’s Black Panther remained in first place at the daily box office on Tuesday with a daily take of $2.835 million. Black Panther has now led the daily box office for 31 of the past 33 days. Black Panther was up 29.5 percent over Monday and down 45.2 percent from last Tuesday. It should be reminded that percentage declines from last Tuesday were inflated in general as a result of many schools being out for spring break last week. Black Panther has grossed a massive $610.050 million in 33 days and is now just $9.777 million away from surpassing last year’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi to move into sixth place on the all-time domestic list.

Warner Bros. and MGM’s Tomb Raider held steady in a very close second with $2.718 million. Tomb Raider trailed Black Panther by a slim $116,185 for the day. Tomb Raider increased a healthy 47.6 percent over Monday’s performance, which represented one of the day’s stronger daily percentage increases among wide releases. Tomb Raider continues to run in line with expectations with a five-day start of $28.193 million. That places the film 38.6 percent ahead of the recent $20.340 million five-day launch of Red Sparrow and 26.1 percent behind the $38.151 million five-day haul of last year’s The Mummy.

Roadside’s I Can Only Imagine continued its break-out start with a third place take of $2.322 million from 1,629 locations. That represented a 41.2 percent increase over Monday and gave the film a strong daily per-location average of $1,425. I Can Only Imagine passed the $20 million mark yesterday and has grossed a significantly stronger than expected $21.065 million in its first five days. I Can Only Imagine is running 7.3 percent ahead of the $19.639 million five-day start of last year’s The Shack and is doing so in 1,259 fewer locations. I Can Only Imagine is scheduled to expand into addition locations on Friday.

Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time grossed $1.681 million to remain in fourth place. A Wrinkle in Time was up a very strong 53.6 percent over Monday, but still down a sharp 56.0 percent from last Tuesday. The twelve-day take for A Wrinkle in Time stands at $63.526 million, which is towards the lower end of expectations. A Wrinkle in Time is running 16.7 percent ahead of the $54.414 million twelve-day total of 2016’s Alice Through the Looking Glass and just 4.7 percent behind the $66.681 million twelve-day haul of 2015’s Tomorrowland.

Fox’s Love, Simon rounded out the day’s unchanged top five with $1.266 million. That represented a 31.5 percent increase over Monday’s take. Love, Simon continues to perform in line with expectations with a five-day start of $13.984 million. That is a slim 1.7 percent ahead of the $13.745 million five-day launch of last year’s Everything, Everything (which also starred Nick Robinson).
