Pacific Rim: Uprising takes down the king of Wakanda
Pacific Rim Uprising Review CocktailsandMovies.com

Well, long live the king. Finally, after becoming the #5 grossing movie of all-time, Black Panther finally took some time off at the top of the box office and allowed Pacific Rim Uprising to slide into the top spot. And it was well deserved for the Jaegers. We’ll have a review coming up later today or tomorrow. But, other than the top few movies, it was a lackluster weekend. You can chalk that up to the NCAA’s or bad weather yet again, but we need some big blockbusters again soon.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers and get into this morning as we bring you the CocktailsandMovies.com Monday Morning Hangover Report. Yes, we DO know it’s the afternoon…

Before we get into handing out mimosas and bloody marys, let’s grab a cocktail and take a look at the box office numbers.

  2. Black Panther – $17 million
  3. I Can Only Imagine$13 million

Let’s hand out a few drinks for weekend achievements (mimosas) and lack thereof (bloody mary’s):

MIMOSAS:
Black Panther –  now the 5th highest grossing movie of all time and the highest grossing super hero movie. Brava.

BLOODY MARYS:
A Wrinkle in Time – beloved book or not, this is a disaster

MORE BLOODY MARYS:
Red Sparrow – in 13th place, this movie has fallen quite a bit

MIMOSAS:
Game Night – despite lackluster reviews, this movie is making its money back.
