The Lion King Racing Towards The $1 Billion At Worldwide Box Office

It looks like many people were back in theatres to relive their childhood. As Lion King is set to cross a billion dollars at the worldwide box office.

It’s Collection 

The second week of The Lion King is over and it earned $75.5 million. It took a drop of 60% from last weekend’s $191.8 million debut frame.

However, it’s still a $75 million second-weekend gross and a $350.8 million in the ten day total.

It is doing quite well for itself, as it is at 12th biggest second week gross, but 28th when accounting inflation, right between Finding Dory and Captain America: Civil War. It is also the eighth-biggest ten-day gross, in 10th when accounting inflation, of all time.

That is a huge record for a movie people were quite skeptical about. So that 60% drop really is not stopping the movie’s momentum.

Country Wise Breakdown 

The non-US total gross stands at $611.9 million. Of them, the biggest has been from China ($114.8 million), the UK ($45.1 million), Brazil ($42.1 million), France ($40.1 million), and Mexico ($37.1 million).

This is not the end for The Lion King, as it has yet to release in two major markets: Japan on August 9, and Italy on August 21.

The Lion King should end up between 1.27x and 1.74x its $350 million ten-day total.

Disney Breaking Records

This has been a very good time for Disney as the animated remake from May, Aladdin has hit $1-billion milestone after it grossed an additional $10.1 million last week.

That makes it the third Disney remake to do so after 2010’s Alice in Wonderland and 2017’s Beauty and the Beast. It will soon be joined by The Lion King remake.

Spider-Man: Far From Home, co-produced by Disney-owned Marvel Studios, crossed that coveted figure prior to the weekend. To take its global tally to $1.03 billion.

But apparently, that is not all for Disney, as Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 4 brought in $29.27 million over the weekend, pushing its total to $917.9 million.

It looks like Disney is enjoying the success of all its movies. Now The Lion King will be joining soon, helping Disney break its own records. Have you watched The Lion King? What were your thoughts? Are you surprised it is doing so well?
