Ava Duvernay’s $100 million adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel “A Wrinkle In Time” and “Black Panther” are both expected to bag $35 million at the box office this upcoming weekend. According to TheWrap, when tracking for “A Wrinkle in Time” first came out three weeks ago, opening weekend estimates were set at approximately $35 million, according to California Film Commission reports. Many concluded that the film would knock “Black Panther” out of the top spot, but now industry analysts believe “that expectation may have been premature.” per The Wrap: Despite Disney’s usually intense marketing campaign which included TV and digital spots throughout NBC’s Winter Olympics coverage, tracking has remained stuck in the mid-30 range. It’s not the ideal start for a film directed by an Oscar-nominated filmmaker and starring Oprah Winfrey. No matter what the opening box office is we are guessing this beautifully crafted Children’s film will stand the test of time. In any case Disney is the biggest winner !!
