Is “Aladdin” Close to Becoming Will Smith’s Most Successful Movie?



After a nearly two-and-a-half-year break from the big screen, Will Smith returned as the Aladdin’s wish-granting sidekick in Disney’s new live-action adaptation of its 1992 animated film.

The superstar, who has a 30-year blockbuster career under his belt stated that he was apprehensive about taking on the role at first, but there is no doubt that he is not regretting his decision, since Aladdin is close to becoming his most successful movie ever.

In the third week of its release, Aladdin managed the score the #3 spot at the box office this weekend with an estimated $16.7 million – moving higher on the list and closer to becoming Will Smith’s highest grossing movie ever.

That says a lot given the actor’s incredible success at the box office since the very beginning of his career.

The Numbers

Aladdin has earned $263.4 million at the domestic box office and $461.4 million in foreign markets, making it a total of $726.8 million.

That makes the movie pretty close behind Suicide Squad, $22 million, to be exact and $92.6 million behind Independence Day. Given the Aladdin success, moving ahead of the first movie is definitely a possibility, while moving ahead of the second, will be a little harder.

Other Successful Movies

Here is the list of Smith’s top five movies at the worldwide box office:

  1. Independence Day ($817.4 million)
  2. Suicide Squad ($746.8 million)
  3. Aladdin ($724.8 million)
  4. Hancock ($624.4 million)
  5. Men in Black III ($624 million)

And here is the list of Smith’s top five movies at the domestic box office:

  1. Suicide Squad ($325.1 million)
  2. Independence Day (306.1 million)
  3. Aladdin (263.4 million)
  4. I Am Legend (256.4 million)
  5. Men in Black ($50.7 million)

But, things look very different, when the ticket prices are adjusted for inflation:

  1. Independence Day ($624.1 million)
  2. Men in Black ($492.1 million)
  3. Suicide Squad ($344 million)
  4. I Am Legend ($330.9 million)
