CNN —  

We now know which movie earns the distinction of ending the streak of “Black Panther” as No. 1 at the box office.

“Pacific Rim Uprising” took the tide with just over $28 million at the box office this weekend.

In its sixth week of release, “Black Panther” earned almost $17 million, according to Box Office Mojo.

The sci-fi sequel had a softer opening than 2013’s “Pacific Rim,” which opened with $37 million in July of that year.

“Pacific Rim Uprising” stars John Boyega, Cailee Spaeny and Scott Eastwood.
