Disney's live action version of Aladdin has been released in cinemas worldwide and the movie is already making a lot of money at the Box Office.

The movie has exceeded expectations and it looks like average movie goers like the film more than the film critics.

As reported by Box Office Pro, Aladdin earned a very decent $84 million at the Box Office this weekend. This is above the $50 million debut that was predicted by Box Office analysts a few weeks ago.

If we include the 4 day Holiday weekend on Monday, the movie should be earning close to $104 million. As for the overall reception for the movie, word of mouth will be positive going forward.

Aladdin earned an "A" grade on Cinemascore while the Audience rating for the film on Rotten Tomatoes is 93%. This is far better than the middling 58% rating from the professional critics.

From a worldwide standpoint, Aladdin has grossed over $200 million globally exceeding its $183 million budget already. It still needs to gross at least over $400 million worldwide in order to break even though.

In related news, Avengers: Endgame has finally grossed over $800 million in North America and close to $2.7 billion worldwide. It might need a few more weeks to pass Avatar if it manages to reach there in the near future!

Next week the Box Office will see the debut of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It will be interesting to see if Aladdin can compete with the competition next week.
