"I Can Only Imagine" doubled expectations by sticking to the typical tactic of "faith-based" releases with a grassroots marketing effort that focused on Southern, Southwestern and suburban moviegoers. In its second week, "A Wrinkle in Time" dropped 50 percent with $16.6 million in ticket sales. "Wrinkle", directed by Ava DuVernay, declined by exactly half from its opening weekend.
The teen romantic dramedy Love, Simon debuted with $11.5 million this weekend and very positive reviews to suggest that it's staying-power could lead to a long run at the box office.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" tops the list at $936 million followed by "Avatar" at $760 million. Worldwide, "Black Panther" has grossed more than $1.1 billion.
Next weekend sees the release of Pacific Rim Uprising and Isle of Dogs, which will surely shake things up at the weekend box-office yet again.
