Highlights
  • Aladdin released May 24 in India, across the world
  • It is expected to earn more thanks to four-day weekend in the US
  • Avengers: Endgame inches closer to Avatar’s all-time record

Aladdin led the worldwide box office this weekend, delivering a $207 million (about Rs. 1,437 crores) opening weekend that places it fourth among Disney's recent live-action remakes of its animated properties, behind 2017's Emma Watson-starrer Beauty and the Beast ($350 million), 2016's Jon Favreau-directed The Jungle Book ($242.1 million), and 2010's Tim Burton-Johnny Depp collaboration Alice in Wonderland ($210.1 million). All three films are the highest-grossing films in Disney's live-action reimagining wheelhouse, having grossed close to a billion dollars or more. It'll be interesting to see if Aladdin box office collection worldwide can get anywhere close to those numbers.

The biggest contributor to Aladdin's $207 million global weekend total was naturally its home market of the US, where the Guy Ritchie-directed film brought in $86.1 million (about Rs. 597.79 crores), followed by China ($18.7 million), Mexico ($9.2 million), UK ($8.4 million), Italy ($6.6 million), Korea ($6.5 million), Russia ($6.4 million), Australia ($5.4 million), Indonesia ($4.9 million), Spain ($4.8 million), Brazil ($4.6 million), France ($3.8 million), Germany ($3.6 million) and Philippines ($3.4 million). In India, Aladdin led the weekend with $3.1 million (Rs. 22.03 crores), according to numbers provided by Disney.

Made off a reported production budget of over $180 million, Aladdin is estimated to rake in $105-110 million (about Rs. 729-764 crores) by the end of Monday in the US, thanks to a long weekend because of Memorial Day. The only major market where the live-action Aladdin has yet to open in is Japan, where the film releases June 7.

Avengers: Endgame Is Now the Highest-Grossing Hollywood Film of All Time in India

Aladdin wasn't the only Disney movie making money at the worldwide box office this weekend. Avengers: Endgame brought in $32.1 million (about Rs. 222.85 crores) to take its global total to $2.677 billion (about Rs. 18,584 crores), about $111 million (about Rs. 770.62 crores) behind Avatar as the record holder on the all-time highest-grossing film chart.
