Wow. I looked early Saturday and it said Wrinkle was barely on top and now it went from middling to probable front-loaded bomb. I don't think it's a race thing as some state, unless you count Black Panther eating into that part of the audience. I think Black Panther killed it.

Yeah I think AWiT was an ambitious book adaptation that just doesn't translate as well to the screen. Plus Black Panther is the Death Star destroying everything in its path. I think Ready Player One will end up being fine, but I'll bet if RPO and AWiT were date swapped it might play differently. More for RPO being run over at least.

BP becomes the first film since Force Awakens to win the box office four straight weeks. But what was the last film to be #1 in Box Office AND PTA four straight weeks??
