T’Challa still rules the box office four weeks in, even with the fresh competition from another Walt Disney Studios release.

“Black Panther” took the No. 1 spot at the North American box office with $41.1 million according to studio estimates Sunday, topping newcomer “A Wrinkle in Time” which placed second.

Disney estimates that Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of “A Wrinkle in Time” grossed $33.3 million over the weekend from 3,980 locations. The film, which cost around $103 million to produce, received mixed reviews from critics and audiences who gave it a B CinemaScore.

The new horror film “The Strangers: Prey At Night” took third place with $10.5 million. The Jennifer Lawrence thriller “Red Sparrow” landed in fourth with $8.2 million and the comedy “Game Night” placed fifth with $7.9 million.
