'Pacific Rim Uprising' conquers 'Black Panther' at weekend box office

After weeks of speculating which film could slow "Black Panther's" impressive roll, "Pacific Rim Uprising" took the top spot at the US box office. Universal and Legendary's "Pacific Rim Uprising" landed a respectable $28 million opening weekend at 3,708 locations. The monster battle movie has garnered mixed critical response, with a current 46 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Though it opened with a softer debut than Guillermo del Toro's predecessor "Pacific Rim," which saw $37 million in July 2013, the sequel was enough to dethrone "Black Panther" in the superhero tentpole's sixth weekend.
