Weather Alert

Box Office: “The Lion King” Shattered Records, and “Endgame” Is Officially the Biggest Movie of All-Time

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
