This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM:
The Walt Disney Co.’s live-action remake of “Aladdin” crushed the competition at the box office this Memorial Day weekend, earning more than $207 million worldwide since its debut. Other new movies in theaters this holiday weekend — the horror “Brightburn” and the critically acclaimed teen comedy “Booksmart” — failed to make a major impact.
While the 2 new R-rated films didn’t even break $10 million, “Aladdin” grossed an estimated $86.1 million to take the top spot at the North American box office, according to studio estimates on Sunday. The family pic did better than the expected $90 million pre-release tracking. It’s expected to surpass the $100 million mark by Monday.
The musical stars Will Smith, Canadian actor Mena Massoud and English actress Naomi Scott and is based on the 1992 animated film, which was the top earner that year. Guy Ritchie directed the remake.
Audiences, who were 54 percent women and 51 percent families, gave the film an A CinemaScore and the newly launched verified Rotten Tomatoes audience rating gave it a 93 percent.
