Box Office: ALADDIN Wins the Holiday Weekend!


I know you’re used to the box office report on Sunday, but with this being a holiday weekend, I figured I’d wait a day and report on the whole darn four day holiday weekend.

Not surprisingly Disney’s Aladdin, a live-action remake of the classic nineties toon, won the weekend with $112.7 million. The flick had critics split with it only getting a 58% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but families gave it a solid A Cinemascore, so word of mouth will be good and should carry Aladdin to a most bountiful box office treasure.

Last week’s number one film, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, had to settle for second place this weekend with a four day total of $31 million. It’s now at a series best of $107.6 million. In two weeks Parabellum has managed to outgross the entire domestic run of John Wick: Chapter 2‘s $92 million. Internationally the story is even better with Parabellum earning $182 million so far.

Avengers: Endgame fell one spot to number three with $22.3 million. It’s domestic total is now at $803.6 million. Internationally Endgame is $2.68 billion. It’s needs about $100 million more to beat Avatar’s worldwide record of $2.78 billion, and I think it will. If we all get off our butts and go see it again! My daughter and I are going this week for the third time, and we’re taking some family members with us. Are you doing your part?

Pokémon Detective Pikachu dropped a spot to number four with $17.2 million. The domestic total is at $120 million.

Brightburn, the James Gunn produced superhero horror movie, debuted in fifth place with $9.5 million.

Here’s the full top ten for the four day weekend:
