REVIEW: Pacific Rim Uprising fails to do its one job

Weekend Box Office: 'Pacific Rim 2' Cuts Down 'Black Panther'

The sci-fi sequel, Pacific Rim: Uprising, took over the top slot at the box office by earning an estimated $28-million on its debut weekend.

Giant robots became the first to conquer Wakanda at the box office, as Pacific Rim Uprising beat Black Panther for #1.

Uprising, the follow-up to Guillermo del Toro's 2013 blockbuster, grossed $122.5 million, including a solid $64 million in China - the market that served as the biggest home to the original film, and the main reason we got this sequel in the first place.

Directed by Steven S. DeKnight, Pacific Rim Uprising features John Boyega as Jake Pentecost, Scott Eastwood as Nate Lambert, Cailee Spaeny as Amara Namani, Jing Tian as Liwen Shao, Rinko Kikuchi as Mako Mori, Charlie Day as Dr. Newton Geiszler and Burn Gorman as Dr. Hermann Gottlieb.

Paul Dergarabedian, a box office analyst at comScore, says, " "Pacific Rim Uprising", much like its 2013 predecessor, will rely heavily on the global box office to justify the sizable investment required to produce such a large scale, effects driven sci-fi epic". The movie has become the highest-grossing superhero movie in the US, not adjusted for inflation.

Sherlock Gnomes is a 2018 3D computer-animated comedy film directed by John Stevenson.

DiGenova has been a Fox News contributor who's regularly accused the Justice Department of trying to frame the President. Trump had sought $20 billion or more to pay for construction of a wall along the U.S. "Work will start immediately".

That said, Pacific Rim Uprising is doing much better overseas as it had a pretty decent opening in China earning over $65 million. What makes these feats all the more impressive, for their respective franchises, is the worthy competition they were up against: a Wes Anderson film, A Tomb Raider reboot, and a host of others.

The surprise faith-based hit "I Can Only Imagine", starring Dennis Quaid, continued to draw audiences in its second week, making $13.8 million.

Fifth place went to the video-game movie "Tomb Raider", which took in $10.4 million in its second weekend in theaters. It brought in $16.7 million and has now reached $630 million domestically. Again, that's domestic; worldwide, Black Panther is still sitting at $1.23 billion against The Avengers' $1.51 billion.

Disney's A Wrinkle in Time took another major plunge, down 50% and two places to sixth with $73.9 million grossed domestically going into spring break. "Black Panther", $16.7 million ($12.9 million international). 3.

Unfortunately for Sherlock Gnomes, it doesn't seem likely to have the staying power that allowed The Star to quadruple its opening weekend. The "I Can Only Imagine" cumulative mark now stands at $38.3 million.

Open Road's Y.A. drama Midnight Sun starring Bella Thorne also opened meekly in tenth place with $4.1 million in 2,173 theaters, while Steven Soderbergh's thriller Unsane, starring Claire Foy and distributed by Bleecker Street, tanked with $3.8 million in 2,023 theaters to open outside the top 10.
