With Will Smith in a starring role as the Genie in this Disney live action remake it was never going to be a flop but early trailers got fans worried, they had nothing to worry about as the film gets a good critical response on release.

The film also stars Mena Massoud as the title character with the like of Naomi Scott also starring, the film is directed by Guy Ritchie.

On its debut weekend, which is also Memorial Day in the US, the film manages a fantastic $86.1 million, $112 million if you include the holiday Monday as well.

This brings the films total gross to $798.1 million and the film is the second highest grossing film ever in the US, it will not go any higher.

<span class='highlight-purple'><i>Brightburn</i></span>


Starring Will Smith and Mena Massoud and directed by the underated British director Guy Ritchie the Disney film tops the global box office with $207.1 million.

this is far better than expected and although not as good as the Disney remake of Beauty And The Beast sits up there with the best of the recent run of live action films.

After the film got criticised after the first trailer, especially Will Smith's Genie, there were fears it would bomb, but critics and audience have likes the film and the box office future looks promising.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum
