Will Smith Announces Aladdin as the Highest Grossing Film of His Career

Will Smith Announces Aladdin as the Highest Grossing Film of His Career. Aladdin is still going strong in the box office and hit a major milestone this week for actor, Will Smith, who plays a new take on the lovable character, Genie, in the live action remake.

In an emotional video, Will Smith shared the news that Aladdin had officially surpassed Independence Day as the highest grossing film of his career. Smith posted the touching video via his verified Instagram account, @willsmith.

“This is a post that I’m just humbled and honored to make right now….To be in this game as long as I’ve been in this game and to have my biggest movie at this point of my career, I just want to say thank you,” shared a grateful and teary eyed Will Smith in the Instagram video, before proceeding to say thanks in as many languages as he could remember. “Just thank you, everybody, around the world, thank you, thank you. Who I miss?”

Aladdin currently sits at over $875 million globally and will likely see another bump over the holiday. Will Smith has even more to look forward to with the release of several films in the next few months including Gemini Man (October), Spies in Disguise (December), and Bad Boys for Life (January).
