The Lion King Passes Black Panther at Box Office, Becomes Tenth Highest-Grossing Movie Ever

Just like that, Jon Favreau's The Lion King has become one of the highest grossing movies to ever hit box offices. Through Thursday night, the film has made $1.34 billion worldwide, good enough for the tenth-highest total a film has ever earned. The photorealistic remake of the Disney animated classic continues putting up stronger numbers as it way through its run, with solid numbers flowing in from overseas. Just 36 percent ($484.2 million) of the remake's total has been made stateside while $863.8m has been made in international markets.
