Daily Box Office Report
Wednesday, March 21, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Disney’s Black Panther took in $2.053 million on Wednesday to remain in first place at the daily box office. Black Panther has now led the daily box office for 32 of the past 34 days. Black Panther declined 27.6 percent from Tuesday and 46.6 percent from last Wednesday. Black Panther has grossed a massive $612.103 million in 34 days and is now just $7.742 million away from surpassing last year’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi to move into sixth place on the all-time domestic list. Yesterday also saw Black Panther surpass the $1.2 billion global mark (the current global total for Black Panther stands at $1.203 billion). BoxOfficeReport is predicting a sixth weekend gross of $18.0 million for Black Panther.

Roadside’s I Can Only Imagine was up one spot from Tuesday to move into second place on Wednesday with $1.674 million. I Can Only Imagine held up nicely yesterday, as the faith-based film declined a solid 27.9 percent from Tuesday. The six-day start for I Can Only Imagine stands at a significantly stronger than expected $22.739 million. I Can Only Imagine is running 8.6 percent ahead of the $20.937 million six-day launch of last year’s The Shack and is doing so in 1,259 fewer locations. With the aid of both strong word of mouth and a significant expansion this weekend, BoxOfficeReport is predicting a second weekend gross of $14.0 million for I Can Only Imagine.

Warner Bros. and MGM’s Tomb Raider was down one spot and a sharp 40.0 percent from Tuesday to land in third on Wednesday with $1.632 million. Tomb Raider continues to run in line with expectations with a six-day haul of $29.825 million. That places the film 37.4 percent ahead of the recent $21.699 million six-day start of Red Sparrow and 26.4 percent behind the $40.516 million six-day take of last year’s The Mummy. BoxOfficeReport is predicting that Tomb Raider will gross $10.8 million in its second weekend.

Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time held steady in fourth place with $1.133 million. That represented a 32.6 percent decline from Tuesday and a sharp 55.8 percent decline from last Wednesday (when more schools were out for spring break). A Wrinkle in Time has grossed $64.659 million in thirteen days, which is towards the lower end of expectations and just 4.9 percent behind the $67.957 million thirteen-day take of 2015’s Tomorrowland. BoxOfficeReport is predicting a third weekend gross of $8.3 million for A Wrinkle in Time.

Fox’s Love, Simon continued to round out the daily top five with $933,017 on Wednesday. Love, Simon was down just 26.3 percent from Tuesday, which represents a healthy first-Wednesday hold. The six-day start for Love, Simon stands at $14.917 million, which is in line with expectations. Love, Simon is running 2.9 percent ahead of the $14.501 million six-day launch of last year’s Everything, Everything (which also starred Nick Robinson). BoxOfficeReport is predicting a second weekend take of $6.7 million for Love, Simon.
