Disney’s The Jungle Book, as expected, surpassed $500M internationally yesterday and today will join Zootopia as the second Disney release of 2016 to cross the $800M worldwide mark. And the studio and Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War will become the third in the $800M realm soon enough. Its global cume right now sits at $788.2M.
Meanwhile, Jungle Book is swinging higher in the U.K. than Deadpool. By the end of this weekend, the Jon Favreau-directed live-action, CGI take on the beloved Rudyard Kipling book will overtake Deadpool to become the highest-grossing title in the region (UK/Ireland). It currently has $54.4M. Add that to Mowgli’s other successes: Jungle Book is the highest grossing Hollywood release ever in India($36.8M) as well as the third-highest grossing Disney release ever in China with $148.2M.
Domestically, The Jungle Book will push past the $300M mark this weekend. As it currently stands, it has cumed $294M stateside after pulling in another $1.39M last night. Internationally, its cume is $501M and globally $795M.
The film opens in Korea on June 2 and in Japan on August 11.
