Disney has debuted a magical new TV spot for the upcoming live-action adaptation of the 1992 animated classic Aladdin teasing the film’s rags to wishes story with the help of Will Smith’s all-powerful genie.
According to Box Office Pro (who has been pretty spot on with their tracking), Aladdin is on track for a $70-$95 million opening domestically for the three-day and between $85-$115 million for the four-day Memorial Day holiday weekend.
“Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, the film is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s animated classic “Aladdin.”
Aladdin stars Mena Massoud (Jack Ryan) as Aladdin, Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) as Jasmine, Will Smith (Bad Boys) as the iconic Genie, Marwan Kenzari (The Mummy 2017) as the villainous Jafar, Numan Acar (Prison Break) as Head of the guards Akim, Navid Negahban (Homeland) as The Sultan, Nasim Pedrad (SNL) as Dalia, Billy Magnussen (Into The Woods) as Prince Anders, and Alan Tudyk (Ralph Breaks The Internet) as the voice of Iago.
Aladdin will hit theaters on May 24, 2019.
