The Universal/Comcast release Pacific Rim: Uprising has a decent shot at making a skewed kind of history by finally dethroning Black Panther from the top spot on the weekend box office charts. It could be the Lost in Space of our generation. Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole’s Black Panther is already the first movie since Avatar in 2009/2010 to top the weekend box office for five frames in a row. Heck, it’s only the 11th movie in 30 years to do so.

It sits alongside Good Morning Vietnam in 1988, Rain Man in 1988/1989, Look Who’s Talking in 1989, Home Alone in 1990, The Silence of the Lambs in 1991, Wayne’s World in 1992, The Fugitive in 1993, Titanic in 1997/1998, The Sixth Sense in 1999 and Avatar in 2009/2010. Such sprees became a lot less common after 1993. But they were somewhat common in the mid-1980s, as Fatal Attraction, Stake Out and The Secret of My Success all did it in 1987. Black Panther is the 25th movie to top the charts for five or more consecutive weekends.

But here’s the terrifying part (for the competition, and potentially the industry as a whole): The MCU flick is doing this at the expense of other would-be event movies. Black Panther has pulled these kinds of legs and this level of domestic box office by beating movies that presumed themselves to be tentpoles. When Titanic did its thing 20 years ago, the “victims” were mostly smaller-scale studio programmers that weren’t necessarily do-or-die releases for their respective studios.
