Lion King added $38M this past weekend. Once again, it's behind Beauty and the Beast for weekend box office.

However, it's still $38M ahead of BatB because it keeps winning the weekdays.

So Lion King should be a $500M film -- it's just taking a different path than BatB took to get there.

--

Hobbs and Shaw won the weekend box office, opening at $60M. While that's not a strong number for Fast and Furious films, the franchise does well overseas and Hobbs and Shaw had $180M global take for its first weekend.

So the film's success is going to be measured more by what it does overseas. Domestically, it's probably going to top out around $150M. Internationally, it's going to do good business.

--

Milestones for several summer releases:

Toy Story 4 - $410M
Spidey Far From Home - $360M
Aladdin - $350M

Disney has been hitting it big this summer. The Spidey film is being distributed by Sony, so that's one hit that's not exclusively Disney.

Lion King is up to $496M and has a $42M lead over Beauty and the Beast.

So it's going to finish ahead of BatB, the only question is how much ahead.

$525M is in play, perhaps $535M. Labor Day weekend could help a bit with its total.

---

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is up to $114M and will pass Inglorious Bastards. I don't know if it has enough to catch Django Unchained, which pulled in $162M, but it's still a good showing for Tarantino.

Pulp Fiction would arguably be his best showing at the box office, though. While that pulled in $107.9M, that was in 1994, thus that number was more impressive at that time.

Oddly large drop for Spidey this weekend compared to Homecoming. It bled theaters quicker than Homecoming as well. Have a feeling that this will keep it from $400M.

I think #1 was a much better movie than #2.---Yohe

#1 was better than any MCU movie other than Cap 2, so that's an impossible standard for Far From Home to top.

#2 is a perfectly good MCU movie, better than most.
