Visually impressive, but challenged by some screenwriting critics, Aladdin live-action nevertheless had a very good box office performance at the US weekend release (days dominated by the American hero festival Memorial Day).
The film was topped by $ 86.1 million in cash – a success for Disney, whose adaptations from outside the Avengers franchise often made it difficult to get paid (Aladdin “flies” to the box office than the recent Dumbo, which had a release of only 46 million dollars, the total in the US is 112.7 million).
Aladdin reached $207 million in cash (it would have been added to Japan’s earnings, where the film was released only on June 7). The production budget was 183 million dollars.
Disney’s newest live-action movie, Aladdin is a mix of music, dance, comedy, drama, and action, and has taken months of production work, from finding the best place to shoot to creating spectacular costumes and producing unique music, ingredients that make the movie unforgettable.
Guy Ritchie’s director, Mena Massoud (Aladdin), alongside Naomi Scott (Princess Jasmine) and Will Smith (Lamp Spirit), as well as Billy Magnussen, Nasim Pedrad and Marwan Kenzari.
The film’s action takes place in Arabia, in the imaginary city of Agrabah, a commercial harbor on the Silk Road. The city, seen as a multicultural gateway to the East, came to life thanks to the designer Gemma Jackson (known for his work on The Mermaid of Thrones).
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum ($ 24.3 million), which reaches $ 175.4 million after the first week since launch ($ 75 million). If compared to the first John Wick film, the amount needed to make production almost doubled, the same thing happened with the proceeds – in addition, the third part had the best debut in the franchise.
