Since this Disney’s remake of a popular evergreen cartoon from 1992 overtook Independence Day, Will Smith decided it was time to say thank you to his many fans. At the same time, this movie became Will Smith’s biggest one yet.
In his video post, Smith humbly said that he couldn’t be more thankful for the biggest movie of his career. He made a video post saying thank you in multiple languages.
On Sunday, Guy Ritchie’s most successful global hit, Aladdin, made over $568 million at the international box office while earning $874.2 million globally.
During the day, Will Smith’s Independence Day earned $511.2 million overseas and $817.4 million worldwide. Until Aladdin saw the light of day, this was the movie which was considered to be Smith’s highlight.
However, the Suicide Squad keeps its place as Will Smith’s top-grossing film with $325.1 million in North America. This summer, Aladdin represents a genuine surprise, in a good way. It was riding its magic carpet from early June.
We were all scared as to how the movie would look like, considering that it has some big shoes to fill. However, we all felt relieved once the final scene ended. It was magical, it was amazing, it was epic — a movie which was named a summer blockbuster for a good reason. The audience was captivated and entirely in love.
It was notable that the movie has earned over $60 million in Korea and $67 million in Japan. Globally, it is estimated that Aladdin should earn over $900 million worldwide by the end of its screening.
Top five offshore earnings are coming with Japan leading the flock with $66.6 million so far. Number two is Korea with $60.2 million. The bronze medal goes to China with $53.3 million. The fourth place goes to the United Kingdom and their $42.8 million, and last but not least is Mexico, having earned a total of $32.1 million.
On the domestic ground, Aladdin has remained in the top four six weeks in a row. This frame became Disney’s third release of 2019 which passed the $300 million thresholds. The other two which reached this figure were Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, and The Beauty and the Beast.
