After $1.65 billion at the global box office, becoming the seventh highest-grossing movie of all time, Lion King rained $1.2 billion in overall revenues for Disney in global theatrical rentals, home entertainment and TV. Disney didn’t cheap out with a $260M production cost, $145M global P&A spend, and overall costs of $621M. We hear Favreau had a great payday here, taking the lion’s share of $60M participations. Disney walks away with $580M in net profit, 16% more than the half-billion it netted the previous year on Avengers: Infinity War, which was the No. 1 film for Deadline’s Most Valuable Blockbuster Tournament.

Whew, bigger than Infinity War. :clap3:

That’s tremendous for a film that was attacked from all corners of the globe (OBH and atrl racists inclusive). I remember posts in the Frozen 2 thread desperate for it to surpass TLK in gross just for the crumble points. :clap3:

Absolutely not. My post is factual. The chatter was about gross not profitability. Frozen 2 still trails behind on that front.

Always ‘bey’s lion king’ when it comes to $$ but never when it comes to critical acclaim

 

It’s still a stinker of a remake and that’s all it will be remembered for

The audience score is 88%

Only the critics trashed it for being a remake not the GP as shown by the score and the movie profits. :coffee:

It was 'Beyoncé's Lion King' in every aspect. The poor critical response just showed once again that ATRL were talking out of their ass when they said nothing that Beyoncé is involved in can get poor reviews, because they're too scared to rate her/her projects poorly. In fact, I was told on this forum that projects with black people predominantly involved were automatically rated higher, because critics were scared of being called racist. I guess they didn't care with this one, huh.

 

OT: Massively profitable and well received amongst the public. :clap3: We love a hit.

Beyonce, who voiced the older Nala and had the songs “Spirit” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” singles on the soundtrack, was the social media star of the cast with 206M followers across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, repping 22% of the film’s entire social media reach.

If Bey wasn’t in it, it’d be #1, and that’s the tea. 
 

 

As both a Lion King and Beyoncé fan, she was tragically the worst part of the film and her song detracted from the film, rather than revitalized it.

Maybe they can use those profits to clear out all The Gift copies at Ross. :thing:
