Brown Skin Girls Help Beyoncé Debut at #2 With 'The Lion King

Brown Skin Girls Help Beyoncé Debut at #2 With 'The Lion King

But with all that, "The Lion King" and its wide appeal still almost matched the opening count of the film. With The Lion King set to join that billion-dollar club soon, that brings the Disney remakes total box office to over $7 billion - a jaw-dropping number that the House of Mouse reached in less than a decade.

Still, Tarantino's film ranked second this weekend with Disney's Lion King still roaring in at first place. While there have been many controversies surrounding Disney's casting choices for The Little Mermaid, we're guessing that the studio is trying to ride on the conversation and use all the press as a way of hyping up the film.

Favreau's next role is as the showrunner for Star Wars spin-off series The Mandalorian for the Disney+ streaming service.

As is the case with most blockbusters these days, The Lion King's box office is being driven by a strong worldwide performance.


Disney accounts for about 45% of the $16 billion-plus made worldwide in movies this year. "Some brands are inoculated from that kind of negative speculation".

Disney is on a record breaking spree, and this at a time when the year isn't even over.

The rest of the box office top 10 remained essentially unchanged from a week earlier.

And this summer releases - Toy Story 4 and The Lion King - are on track to smash the $1 billion barrier after already raking in more than $900 million worldwide.


"The Lion King" could reign for a third week.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at USA and Canadian theaters, according to Comscore.

The only true contest it will open next weekend is "Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw" with significant summer releases slowing as fall approaches. Where available, the latest global numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. "In Hollywood", $40.3 million.
