Disney Dominance Continues As ‘Lion King’ Stays On Top

Disney’s Lion King reigns supreme over the box office jungle for a second consecutive week, foraging another $75.5 million from audiences here in the U.S. With one month to go in the summer season, Walt Disney is the clear leader at the box office, with three of its movies taking the top spot and its total grosses surpassing $2.6 billion.

Quentin Tarantino scored his biggest opening ever with the critically acclaimed Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, earning $40.3 million in its first four days, including Thursday preview shows in many markets. Considering Tarantino’s been pegged as a “cult favorite” in a career has spanned three decades, “Hollywood’s” showing is impressive.

In its fourth week, Spider-Man: Far From Home made another $12.2 million, pushing its month-long domestic gross past the $335 million mark.

Toy Story 4 continues to perform well, bringing in $9.8 million this weekend. It has pushed past Toy Story and Toy Story 2 to become the second-biggest film in the franchise, with less than $30 million to go before it catches Toy Story 3.

With a budget of just $13.5 million, the horror film Crawl has more than doubled that at the box office, taking in $4 million in its third week.

Rounding out the Top 10: Box office troubles still seem far away for Yesterday at No. 6, as it grossed another $3 million in its fifth week. Disney’s third entry this week, the live-action Aladdin remake, conjured up another $2.7 at No. 7. The buddy comedy Stuber slips into the eighth spot with $1.6, Annabelle Comes Home is ninth with $1.56 million , and highly praised dramedy The Farewell closes out the list with $1.55 million, a pretty impressive showing considering it only had 135 screens this weekend. Look for it to be a solid performer as it continues to add to its theater count.
