USA Box Office follows the Lion King

Image Last weekend, the USA box office took a break from the high-profile summer premieres, so the top five of the domestic box office underwent slight changes, and the Lion King proudly sits at the top of the financial rating. He, in fact, set the tone for the entire box office: the box office receipts dropped by half, as did the audience for the Disney remake, and amounted to 691.2 million rubles.

The top five for the weekend (July 25-28) is as follows:

1. "The Lion King"


Week at the box office: 2
Added: 517 million rubles.
Total fees: 2.03 billion rubles.
Sank / Rise: - (-51.9%)

Despite the fact that the "Lion King" was left without half of the audience, the second victory in the box office was given to him easily, as, indeed, the second billion. "The Jungle Book" and "Aladdin" sagged less by the second weekend, but they also started weaker. As for "The Lion King", the film by Jon Favreau became the third after the final "The Avengers" and "T-34", who this year exceeded the mark of 2 billion rubles. If we talk about the history of the domestic box office as a whole, now "The Lion King" ranks tenth in the list of the highest-grossing films released in USA cinemas.

2. "Spider-Man: Far From Home"


Week at the box office: 4
Added: 40.6 million rubles.
Total fees: 1.32 billion rubles.
Sank / Rise: - (-46%)

Peter Parker, of course, finds it difficult to compete with Simba, but he snatched his tidbit in USA cinemas. The other day, the blockbuster by Jonathan Watts will also bypass Captain Marvel, which stopped at 1.33 billion rubles.

3. "Vidocq: Ghost Hunter"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: 21.2 million rubles.
Total fees: RUB 21.3 million.
Sank / Rise: - (-)

Painting by Jean-Francois Richet was the only one of a dozen newcomers of the week who somehow took advantage of the temporary break from the new summer blockbusters. "Vidocq" started from the top bar of expectations, which is already good, because in the presence of French cinema stars led by Vincent Cassel, the film did not receive proper advertising support, and even changed its name on the way to cinemas. It is noteworthy that the previous joint work of Richet and Kassel, the dramedy "This Awkward Moment", started almost the same way - from the mark of 22.2 million rubles.

4. "Anna"


Week at the box office: 3
Added: 16.7 million rubles.
Total fees: RUB 214.7 million.
Sag / Rise: -1 (-54.2%)

Luc Besson's action movie did not become a box office hit either in France or in other countries, so USA viewers were quite loyal to him. At least “Anna” beat “Malavita” (199.8 million rubles) of the same Besson in the domestic box office.

5. "Solstice"


Week at the box office: 2
Added: 11.1 million rubles.
Total fees: 40.2 million rubles.
Sank / Rise: -1 (-41.5%)

The second directorial work of Ari Aster is already close to surpassing the result of his own "Reincarnation" (46 million rubles), which at one time became a real discovery for fans of the horror genre. "Solstice" has earned more controversial press reviews, but without its big jackpot left.
