As Spider-Man: Far From Home and The Lion King are apparently the only Disney films breaking documents, people have forgotten that Aladdin is chasing a prestigious box office feat itself.
Last weekend, Aladdin $3 million domestically and $10.6 Million globally to drive on its total past the $1 billion mark. With that, it’s now officially the fourth largest highest-grossing film in the fantasy genre ever in the U.S.
also in shooting distance of achieving that same designation at the global box office.
Despite dropping 307 theaters throughout the 10th week of its U.S. run, Aladdin’s $3 million weekend is only a 25.6% fall over the previous weekend. And its 6.9 million revealing involving July 19-25 was only a 35.1% fall over the last week.
That brings its domestic total to $346.2 million, which pushed it just past The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers ($342.6 million).
Now only 3 films now stand in Aladdin’s way at the domestic box office. While the third party is far forward to even entertain the notion two are possible to grab. In the 3 position is The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King with $377.8 million and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 with $381.2 million. Initially (by a landslide) is Beauty and the Beast (2017) with $504 million.
In recent weeks at the domestic box office, Aladdin not Only moved past Both Towers, but Alice in Wonderland ($334.2 million), Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ($317.9 million) and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring ($315.5 million) too.
Still sitting at the #6 spot globally, Aladdin did not move up the Charts since last week. It did however come much closer to catching the movies in the fourth and fifth places, which can be Alice in Wonderland ($1.03 billion) and The Hobbit.
An Unexpected Journey ($1.02 billion) respectively.
Following a strong $7.6 million showing in its 10th week in foreign markets, It’s likely Aladdin will capture those movies within the next few weeks. Aladdin is still showing strong numbers in South Korea, Japan, Germany and Australia.
The same 3 films that top the all time dream list from the U.S. predominate The list as well. Except now Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is in the lead with $1.34 billion, Beauty and the Beast is currently in second with $1.26 billion and The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King is currently in third with $1.12 billion. While reaching the #4 position seems inevitable, Copying any of those films in the 1-3 spots would require some sudden foreign returns for Aladdin.
As a small side note, Once We account for ticket price inflation, Aladdin Only moved up one place on the U.S. record, jutting only past The Hobbit: An Unusual Journey into the #14 spot. On this list, Aladdin will Have to push its domestic total previous $360 million to entertain the thought Of catching two Harry Potter movies (Half-Blood Prince and Prisoner Of Azkaban) and Alice in Wonderland. After that, there continue to be Five more Harry Potter films and all three Lord of the Rings films.
