Will 'Black Panther' Win Another Weekend?

Can Black Panther hold on to the top box-office spot for five weekends in a row? Alicia Vikander's reboot of Tomb Raider will try to make the answer to that question no this weekend. The reboot is one of four new film that will contend for moviegoers' attention this week.

Will Alicia Vikander's Tomb Raider — a reboot of the film franchise from the early 2000s that was headlined by Angelina Jolie — be the movie to finally dethrone superhero sensation Black Panther?

Opening in more than 3,700 theaters, Tomb Raider is tracking to debut between $23 million and $25 million at the North American box office this weekend.

Ryan Coogler's Black Panther also looks likely to earn $25 million or so in its fifth outing. If it stays atop the chart, the Disney and Marvel superhero blockbuster will be the first film since Avatar eight years ago to prevail for five consecutive weekends.

From Warner Bros. and MGM, Tomb Raider hopes to restart the film series that centers on Lara Croft, an adventurous and fearless archaeologist (the video game upon which the movie franchise is based saw a major overhaul in 2013). This time out, Croft embarks on a dangerous journey to solve the mystery of her father's disappearance. Norwegian filmmaker Roar Uthaug (The Wave) directed the $90 million pic, which co-stars Dominic West, Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu and Kristin Scott Thomas.
