Despite mixed reviews from critics and less than enthusiastic initial reactions from audiences, Aladdin proved to be a diamond in the rough at the box office this Memorial Day weekend.
The newest live-action adaptation earned $90 million over the three day weekend and another $22 million today, equaling an astounding $112 million. With that number, Aladdin has now become the fifth highest Memorial Day opening weekend film, the current record holder belonging to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End which opened to $139 million back in 2007. Internationally, Aladdin grossed $121 million, making its worldwide total $233.7 million.
Taking fourth place at the box office but still holding strong is the juggernaut that is Avengers: Endgame, earning another $22.3 million, bringing its domestic total to $803.3 million and worldwide total to $2.68 billion.
