‘Aladdin’ Tops Memorial Day Weekend Box Office

It may be a whole new world for Aladdin, but it turned out to be another lucrative opening weekend for Disney. The live-action feature grossed $112.7 million stateside over the Memorial Day weekend, beating out even high-end estimates that the film would bow to $100 million. 

The rehashing of the studio’s 1992 animated pic has received a mixed response from critics, with a 57 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but has fared far better with audiences, earning a A CinemaScore. Aladdin’s audience skewed male, with a 60/40 split, with 51 percent under 25 years old.

The top 12 films of the weekend are as follows:
