Can Anyone Knock Off Black Panther?

For the first time since Avatar in 2009, Black Panther has clung to the top of the Stateside box office for a fifth weekend, seeing off the likes of Tomb Raider. The superhero smash has made more than $27 million this weekend, according to studio estimates.

And Marvel's latest success story has hit another milestone, becoming only the seventh film ever to gross more than $600 million at the domestic box office. With its overseas takings, the movie has now crossed more than $1.1 billion.

Tomb Raider could only manage $23.5 million in treasure found from audiences, earning it a second place launch. Will it go on to spawn a franchise, as Warner Bros. might hope? That will have to wait for its full takings figures to come in. More successful (especially in terms of budget vs. return) was faith-based drama I Can Only Imagine, which started its chart run in third $17 million, off the back of a $7 million budget.

Slipping a couple of places to fourth, A Wrinkle In Time picked up $16.5 million, while new romantic comedy Love, Simon did decent business in fifth, taking in $11.5 million.

Game Night fell a place to sixth, making $5.5 million, while Peter Rabbit was down to seventh on $5.2 million. Horror sequel Strangers: Prey At Night dropped to eighth place with $4.8 million, just ahead of Red Sparrow at ninth and $4.4 million. Finally, at 10th, we find the new Death Wish reboot, which grabbed $3.3 million but still hasn't cracked $30 million in the States.

Subject-Swiss Army Man
Name & mailing address

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
