‘Moana’ Might Just Break Universal’s Record; Disney Movie Triumphs At Box Office On Its First Week
The latest Disney movie, “Moana” is making waves on the box office as it crashes box office records. The movie was received great on its initial release that it has gained millions, threatening to overthrow Universal from its top spot.
“Moana” premiered at the American Film Institute (AFI) Fest on Nov. 14. But Disney released the animated film in theaters all over the US on Nov. 23, the eve of Thanksgiving Day. The movie was widely acclaimed and attracted so many viewers just on its first weekend, it earned $56.3 million.
With that feat, it has topped the weekend US box office and defeat even Brad Pitt’s movie, “Allied”. The movie so far has already grossed $101 million worldwide to date. It is expected to top the box office again on its second weekend despite new movie titles making their debut in theaters.
“Moana” opened in 3,875 theaters all over America and with its miraculous box office figures, it has been hailed as one of the only four movies in the US since 1982 to have a successful opening. Thanks to the latest fruitful release, Disney is on the verge of breaking Universal’s annual box office record. Disney had a great year last year but it still fell behind Universal Studios.
“Doctor Strange” has already given Disney the jumpstart they needed to make up for this year and with “Moana” showing impressive results, Disney might just grab the top spot from Universal. Disney has yet to release “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, which is set to release in the US on Dec. 16. The latest two movies are predicted to help Disney turn the tables in the annual box office records.
“Moana” revolves around a girl who grew up with a Polynesian tribe and was chosen by the ocean to reunite a mystical relic with a goddess. Moana is joined by Maui, portrayed by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who is a legendary demigod.
