'Aladdin' flies off with $7M from Thursday night box office previews




Disney's latest live-action choice 'Aladdin' (which I can assure you is not as aggressively terrible as 'Beauty and the Beast') started off the long weekend box office in the U.S. with $7M on Thursday night, and is expected to make anywhere between $80M-$100M during the three-day Memorial Day weekend (on a $183 million budget).

In addition to 'Aladdin', this weekend sees the debut of the horror 'BrightBurn', which brought in $950,000 on Thursday and is expected to make around $10M-$12M on the long weekend (on a $7M budget).

The third movie out in kinda of major release is the critically-acclaimed teen comedy 'Booksmart', which is expected to bring in $10M-$16M this long weekend (on a $19M budget).
