NEW YORK ( Associated Press) – On one of the lowest opening weekends of the year, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” was the top-grossing film for a fifth consecutive weekend in the United States and Canada, according to studio estimates. sunday.

There are huge expectations in the entertainment world for the upcoming release of James Cameron’s “Avatar: The Way of Water”, for which the studio has decided not to release any of the films nationally.
