‘The Lion King’ Crosses $500 Million Domestic, Will Soon Pass ‘Beauty and the Beast’
Jon Favreau’s “The Lion King” is now on the verge of becoming the highest grossing Disney remake both domestically and globally, as its North America total crossed $500 million on Thursday.

It is now the 14th film in box office history to reach the half-billion domestic milestone. 10 of those films came from Disney, and six of those films were released within the last two years. Those films, along with “Lion King,” are “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “Black Panther,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Incredibles 2” and “Avengers: Endgame.”

Saturday Night Live Season 45 Premiere Host Guessing Game: Jennifer Aniston? Phoebe Waller-Bridge? Lil Nas X? (At Long Last) Kristen Bell?
Forget song of the summer. Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” is now the undisputed song of the decade, having ruled Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart for a record-shattering 19 weeks. It’s a veritable foregone conclusion that Lorne Michaels will extend an invitation to the rapper to pull double duty as host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live‘s inaugural Season 45 installment.

Of course, the hip-hop phenom is not the only shoo-in to headline SNL‘s first batch of Season 45 installments. According to my trusty crystal ball, the following A-listers will also turn up this fall in Studio 8H,

'Toy Story 4' becomes Disney’s fifth release of 2019 to cross $1bn global box office

Pixar smash is eighth highest-grossing animation of all time.

Pixar’s Toy Story 4 has become the fifth Disney release of 2019 to cross $1bn at the global box office, setting a new record by a studio in a calendar year of unprecedented dominance.

Disney executives said on Thursday (15) the animation and Oscar contender had reached an estimated $1.0017bn on Aug. 14, marking the fourth time a Pixar release has reached the milestone after Incredibles 2, Finding Dory, and Toy Story 3.

Disney Has Already Broken Its Own Annual Global Box Office Record With $7.6 Billion

Disney Has Already Broken Its Own Annual Global Box Office Record With $7.6 Billion
The 2019 box office was predicted to be a year of Disney domination, and that has proven to be all too true as the studio has broken the all-time annual global box office record in just seven months thanks to Marvel films like “Avengers: Endgame” and its latest release, “The Lion King.”

The previous record had also been set by Disney back in 2016, the year where Disney truly began to show off the power it had accumulated through its acquisition of several major franchises. Films like Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Rogue One,” Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: Civil War,” Pixar’s “Finding Dory” and Disney Animation’s “Zootopia” combined for the first ever $3 billion domestic year and a global annual total of $7.61 billion worldwide.

But in 2019, Disney has blown by that total in seven months, but really in just four. Unlike in 2016, where Disney got off to a

‘Aladdin’ to Hit $1 Billion Friday as Disney Remakes Keep Ruling Box Office

‘Aladdin’ to Hit $1 Billion Friday as Disney Remakes Keep Ruling Box Office
Two months after its release, Guy Ritchie’s remake of Disney’s “Aladdin” will cross the $1 billion mark at the global box office Friday, taking advantage of a mix of nostalgia and weak competition to dominate the box office in June.

Released on Memorial Day weekend, “Aladdin” received mixed reviews with a 57% Rotten Tomatoes score, with some reviews echoing the sense of Disney remake fatigue that many critics would show two months later with “The Lion King.” But that didn’t stop Disney fans from showing up to the tune of a $117 million 4-day opening, the largest Memorial Day opening since “Fast & Furious 6” in 2013.

But it didn’t stop there. In the following weeks, fellow Disney release “Toy Story 4” proved to be the only serious competition for both family and general moviegoers as titles from other studios like “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” and “Men In Black: International

‘Avengers: Endgame’ to Top ‘Avatar’ on Sunday as Highest Grossing Film of All Time

  • The Wrap
Like Thanos, this was inevitable. In its 13th week of its release, Disney’s “Avengers: Endgame” is set to overtake “Avatar” as the highest grossing film in box office history, ending the James Cameron film’s nine-year reign atop the global charts.

Marvel announced the record-breaking achievement would take place on Sunday at its panel at San Diego Comic-Con.

As of Friday, “Avengers: Endgame’s” global gross stood at $2,789.2 million. This is just $500,000 behind the lifetime global gross of “Avatar” of $2,789.7 million set back in 2010, and “Endgame” will close this gap by tomorrow.

Even when adjusted for inflation, “Endgame” sits among the top 10 highest grossing films of all time, standing among some of cinema’s greatest event films like “Star Wars,” “Doctor Zhivago,” and “The Ten Commandments.”

The road to this new record was a far different one than what “Avatar” took. Back in 2009, “Avatar” was set for a December

5 Disney Movies That Deserve A Sequel (& 5 That Don’t)

Disney’s animated features have had a long, rocky relationship with sequels. Starting in 1994 with The Return of Jafar, Disney began cranking out direct-to-video sequels for some of its most beloved theatrical releases. The problem is that many of these new films had predictable stories and poorer animation than their predecessors. While enjoyable, they didn’t hold the same cinematic value of the classics that came before them.

Thankfully, Disney seemed to realize this and slowed down the production of sequels in the 2010s. Nevertheless, its theatrical sequels have not reached a dead-end (Frozen II). While we don’t know how good Disney’s future sequels will be, we do know which films deserve a follow-up — and of course, we know the ones that don’t. We’re only going to be covering the movies that don't already have a sequel,

The Batman Wants Chloe Grace Moretz as Catwoman?
We all know Twilight and Remeber Me actor Robert Pattinson will be taking on the role of Bruce Wayne / Batman in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Cloverfield director Matt Reeves' The Batman. Now we can all start wondering who will be taking on the previously announced role of Catwoman.

And that's just what we're going to be doing here today, as this morning we got word that the powers that be behind the scenes of this new Batman movie are looking to cast Kick-Ass and Let Me In actress Chloe Moretz as Selina Kyle.

Parks and Recreation and recent Child's Play remake star Aubrey Plaza recently threw her metaphorical hat into the ring for the role, going to "audition" as Catwoman over on Stephen Colbert. But considering that Reeves' upcoming take on The Dark Knight is said to be set in the very early years of the Caped Crusader's life,

Frozen 2: 10 Things You Missed In The Trailer

After 6 long years and a critically-maligned short starring a snowman that ill-advisedly premiered in front of Coco, the highly-anticipated sequel to 2013’s animated blockbuster hit Frozen was finally confirmed for a November 2019 release date. Through a pair of trailers, Frozen II was unveiled to those who couldn’t wait to see Anna and Elsa on the big screen again. Problem was, they didn’t really make sense. Despite being beautifully animated and scored, the trailers were vague and provided little to no hints about the sequel’s plot.

Because of the lack of answers and the intrigue that the mystery has spawned, fans and online theorists resorted to mining the trailers for the smallest of hints while missing out on some rather obvious ones. Here are 10 such things that people may have missed in Frozen II’s trailers in their search for clear answers and spoilers.

‘Frozen 2’: Disney Shows Off New Look at Much-Hyped Sequel, Hints at Deeper Story
When Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck’s much-hyped “Frozen” sequel opens later this year, the Disney animated offering will likely answer some lingering questions leftover from the original smash hit. While early looks at the film have promised to explain the origin of Princess Elsa’s wintry powers, a new presentation from Disney brass at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival hints that the story is even more wide-ranging than previously disclosed. Like many Disney features, much of it might hinge on Elsa’s parentage.

Variety reports that during a special event held at Annecy’s lakeside Bonlieu Theater, “Frozen 2” head of animation Becky Bresee and head of effects animation Marlon West shared a slew of new details about the film, including three new pictures (which you can see throughout this article) and a key note on time: the film will pick up three years after the original wrapped.

New ‘Frozen II’ Trailer Goes Searching for the Source of Elsa’s Magic

Disney has released a new Frozen II trailer. The upcoming sequel sees Anna, Elsa, Kristof, Sven, and Olaf going on a new adventure to discover the source of Elsa’s magical powers. What's interesting about this trailer is how it looks like they're going all in on the adventure aspect. There's no humor here, no Olaf throwing in little jokes (maybe Olaf's Frozen Adventure was an even bigger debacle than we realized), and the focus is firmly on Elsa. And perhaps moving away from the childish stuff makes sense when you realize that people who were …

Why was Elsa born with magical powers? The answer is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll set out on a dangerous but remarkable journey in the enchanted lands up north. In “Frozen,” Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In “Frozen 2,” she must hope they are enough.
