Disney is adding some additional footage to Avengers: Endgame to help it bridge the gap to Avatar, but that's not the only Disney film in theaters that continues to bring in money at the box office. Disney's live-action Aladdin is also still generating revenue, and on Friday the film pulled in another $2.9 million. That's quite impressive on its own, especially with so many other films in theaters at the moment, but it also means Aladdin is on the precipice of surpassing $300 million domestically, and that will be the third Disney film to cross that threshold this year.
Once Aladdin surpasses $300 million it will join Captain Marvel ($426 million) and Avengers: Endgame ($837 million) in that elite club. More than likely it will by the end of the year be at least one of four films in that club, as Disney's Toy Story could join it by the time its run is over. As it stands it is at $196 million domestic.
Before Friday Aladdin had brought in $299,416,946 million domestically and another $524,732,584 million internationally, resulting in a worldwide total of $824,149,530 million. Aladdin has been in theaters for over 5 weeks, so it remains to be seen how much longer it will stay in theaters. If it can stick around for a while, it could end up hitting the $900 million mark, but that remains to be seen.
