WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Black Panther reigns for a fifth straight weekend with 27MM on a mere 34 percent drop. It's the first movie to fivepeat since Avatar. And it crosses 600MM domestic in the process.  The only blemish in this story is that China still seem... lukewarm on movies featuring a black cast (Marvel has pulled in ~66MM there; compared to making 55MM in the UK.) Domestically, it is likely to surpass Titanic for third all-time in a couple of weekends.  Tomb Raider places with 23.5MM against a 94MM budget, so the franchise likely dies again, absent extraordinary foreign receipts.  The faith-based flick I Can Only Imagine shows with 17MM against a 7MM budget, which is much better math.  And it edges out fourth-place A Wrinkle in Time, which grossed 16.6MM on a 50 percent drop in its second weekend and is unlikely to profit on the big screen.  The debut of Love, Simon rounds out the Top Five with 11.5MM against a 17MM budget, which is not bad for the first gay teen romance from a major studio.
