Weather Alert

Some HUGE records were broken at the box office this weekend.

For starters, “Avengers: Endgame” finally slipped past “Avatar” to become the highest grossing movie of ALL TIME worldwide. “Endgame” has made $2.79 billion globally, surpassing the $2.7897 billion that “Avatar” made 10 years ago.
That’s with the numbers NOT adjusted for inflation . . . and it also needed a little boost. In late June, “Endgame” was re-released with six minutes of new footage . . . probably in a bid to help it pass “Avatar”. That’s the GLOBAL #1.
“Endgame” will finish a distant second domestically . . . behind “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. “Endgame” has made $854.2 million in the U.S., while “The Force Awakens” is at $936.7 million.
As for this past weekend, the new “Lion King” movie was a MASSIVE success. It made $185 million in its first weekend out . . . and $531 million worldwide. And here are some of the records it set:
1. Biggest Domestic Opening of All Time for a Disney Remake
2. Biggest Disney Opening of All Time Outside of Marvel and LucasFilm
3. Biggest Domestic Launch Ever for a PG Movie, Animated or Otherwise
4. Biggest July Opening of All Time
5. Ninth-Biggest Domestic Opening of All Time
(In other words, Disney’s live-action groundhog HAS seen its shadow . . . meaning we’re probably in for another six years of live action remakes.)
1. NEW: “The Lion King”, $185 million
2. “Spider-Man: Far From Home”, $21 million. Up to $319.7 in its 3rd week.
3. “Toy Story 4”, $14.6 million. Up to $375.5 million in its 5th week.
4. “Crawl”, $6 million. Up to $23.8 in its 2nd week.
5. “Yesterday”, $5.1 million. Up to $57.6 million in its 4th week.
