The Jungle Book Crushes the Box Office Opening Weekend

Updated 4/17/16:

The opening weekend estimations are in and opening night clearly wasn’t a fluke for “The Jungle Book.” Multiple news outlets are reporting that it is estimated to take in $103 million in the US and close to $300 million globally. Pretty impressive start to 2016 for Disney.

Original Post:

BoxOffice Pro is reporting that Disney’s “The Jungle Book” took in $4.2 million on Thursday (opening) night. This is a very strong number for the first night. To put this total in perspective, it is roughly the same amount that “Maleficant” gained on opening night in 2014.

This news comes in after reports that “The Jungle Book” had an excellent opening day in China. More updates to come soon!

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
