    I'm kinda shocked at the legs Aladdin has at the theater. It came out almost six weeks ago and there are still five screenings today at a local AMC. $305 million domestic is nothing to sneeze at. Another $570 million international.

    All that being said, it's nice to see. The chatter has been about Endgame vs. Avatar. Aladdin has snuck in there even with all the competition.

    Gonna be interesting to see what "Lion King" does. Seems like all the predictions were that "Aladdin" would do lackluster business and "Lion King" would be massive.

    Which it still might, but "Aladdin" clearly did way better than most predicted!

    I hope there’s a lesson that someone learns here that if you have 100% brand recognition, you don’t need to spend twice the movie’s budget on advertising. Those campaigns are toxic to the industry in my view, because they add so much cost while adding so little of value to the actual film, but can be the difference between having a small profit or being hopelessly stuck in the red.

    Official audio of "Desert Moon," the deleted song that will appear on the Blu-ray.



    Why does this sound better than anything Ritchie actually kept in the movie?
