According to early estimates, "Black Panther" is on pace to claim $38 million this weekend which would once again place it on top.

Disney's latest "A Wrinkle in Time," directed by Ava DuVernay is likely to collect $35 million, so the race will be extremely close.

The 1962 novel by Madeleine L'Engle is about a young girl who goes on an exploration of cosmic realms in search of her missing scientist father.

The PG-rated film stars big names Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon along with a young Storm Reid and is currently leading the weekend pre-sales on the website Fandango.

"A Wrinkle in Time" has gotten mixed reviews according to Rotten Tomatoes with just a 44 percent likeability score.

An interesting note about the movie: It is the first with a production budget of at least $100 million to be directed by a woman of color.

Elsewhere, a few smaller showings are also looking to find an audience this weekend at the box office.

"The Strangers" Prey at Night" is expected to make $7 to $9 million with its opening and is about a family road trip that goes wrong at a mobile home park. The movie is a sequel to the 2008 film "The Strangers" which made $82 million.

Both the R-rated film "Gringo" and the action movie "The Hurricane Heist" are expected to open with just $4 to $7 million starts.

None of the smaller films have received good reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, with "The Strangers: Prey at Night" getting the highest nod at just 33-percent.

"Gringo" has a 32-percent score on Rotten Tomatoes and "The Hurricane Heist" has a lowly 17-percent.
