The much-anticipated Disney live-action version of “The Jungle Book” was released this weekend. Last year Disney released their first movie that is part of their long list of live-action fairy tale movies, “Cinderella”, which was incredibly successful critically and in the box office.
With much to live up to, “The Jungle Book” delivered, taking the number 1 spot in the weekend box office. The movie made $32.4 million just on Friday alone, and at that point was projected to make about $90 million for the weekend. However, “The Jungle Book” exceeded the projections, grossing a whopping $103.6 million for its opening weekend, one of the highest April openings of all time.
This movie is definitely a success, beating out the domestic opening weekend numbers of last year’s “Cinderella”, which had a $70 million debut. Prior to the U.S.’s opening weekend of “The Jungle Book”, the film had brought in $136.1 million overseas.
