Aladdin Is Crossing the $1 Billion Mark at the Global Box Office Today

-

With $999 million through yesterday, Disney’s Aladdin is crossing the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office today. It’s the fifth Disney-branded live-action release to do so alongside Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland, and the second and fourth Pirates of the Caribbean films. It is also The Walt Disney Studios’ third film of the year to reach this milestone.

Earning an A CinemaScore and a 94% verified audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, Aladdin has seen robust week-to-week performance throughout its run. It debuted over the four-day Memorial Day weekend with $117 million domestically and has remained in the top seven over the course of its nine-week run, earning a total of $343 million to date.

Internationally, Aladdin has brought in $656 million and continues to draw audiences throughout the world. The top international market is Japan, where the film is about to pass the $100 million mark following on from very strong holds since its opening on June 7. It has also performed strongly in Korea, where it is the No. 4 Western film of all time with $81 million, China with $53 million, the UK with $45 million, and in the Middle East, where it is the highest-grossing release of all time in the region.

The film stars Will Smith as the Genie; Mena Massoud as Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar; Alan Tudyk as the parrot Iago; Navid Negahban as the Sultan; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia; Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim.
