'Black Panther' tops 'Wrinkle' as Disney dominates box office

While Ryan Coogler's Black Panther continues on its unstoppable domination of cinemas worldwide - it passed the $1 billion in box office takings at the weekend - Ava Duvernay's A Wrinkle in Time took $33.3 million during its opening weekend, which is enough to make it the second highest-grossing film in American cinema at the moment.

Now it looks like the overall weekend will be a photo finish: Wrinkle In Time's estimates are at around $40 million - with Black Panther thought to be cruising towards $37 million.

According to CNN, this is the first time that that two films driven by black directors with budgets exceeding $100 million have managed to clinch the top two box office spots.

A Wrinkle in Time sees Ava DuVernay directing a cast that includes Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Zach Galifianakis, Levi Miller, Andre Holland and Deric McCabe.
