That’s Baller: Aladdin’s $113 Million Memorial Day Weekend Box Office Smash

Disney remakes are increasingly popular and audiences never seem to get tired of seeing their childhood favorites on the big screen. Films making a debut during Memorial Day weekend can either be a box office smash or a flop. It’s safe to say ”Aladdin,” featuring, Will Smith as the genie is a hit, earning $113 million over the Memorial Day opening weekend.

The film’s earnings have surpassed other Disney classics like ”Dumbo,” which debuted at $45.9 million earlier this year, ”The Jungle Book” in 2016 debuted at $103.2 million, however, ”Beauty and the Beast” pulled in a whopping $174.7 million in 2017. The critics reviews for ”Aladdin” so far are mixed, with a 57 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes yet scoring an A CinemaScore. Even with the success of the film, the 2019 holiday box office didn’t do as well other years only bringing in $226 million with sales from ”John Wick 3,” “The Avengers: Endgame” and “Detective Pikachu” collectively.
