Without A Doubt, This ‘Lion’ Is King Of The Jungle

Apparently, Disney can do no wrong this summer. Aladdin and Toy Story 4 did very well, but their results were just appetizers compared to the feast The Lion King took in during its record-breaking opening. It raked in $185 million this weekend, easily surpassing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 to become the biggest July opening ever.

Of course, The Lion King’s dominance brought Spider-Man’s run at the top to an end, though $21 million and a second-place finish in its third week is a nice consolation prize.

Toy Story 4’s $14. 6 million box office take was good enough for third place but, more significantly, also pushed the franchise past the $1 billion mark in worldwide grosses.

Crawl didn’t exactly stand tall in fourth place, but it did earn $6 million.

At Number 5, the Beatles-inspired movie Yesterday held steady, showing some staying power in its fourth weekend with $5.1 million.

Rounding out the Top 10: The action-comedy Stuber made $4 million ; Aladdin surpassed the $340 million domestic mark with a $3.8 million take; Annabelle 3 scared up another $2.6 million ; Midsommar took in another $1.5 million ; and after seven weeks, The Secret Life of Pets 2 still has some life with $1.5 million.
