Lion King had a good start with collections in the 30-35% range. It is the seventh best opening of the year if we count Hindi and Hollywood releases and the opening is a little less than Spiderman - Far From Home released a few weeks back.



This is a good result for Lion King as its a film where the target audience of kids and families will come on Saturday so it is sure to go up by a margin as the under 16 audience comes in numbers especially in the metros. The opening may be a little less than Spiderman - Far From Home but the first day can beat that film as this film can have better growth from late afternoon onward.



The Hindi releases Family Of Thakurgunj and Jhootha Kahin Ka were dull and its only about which of the two can do better as they are hardly likely to do well. Penalty also released and that film had no audience. The top ten openings of the year are as follows. Gully Boy is placed ahead of Lion King due to the wider release.



1. Avengers - Endgame - 77.5%



2. Bharat - 60%



3. Kabir Singh - 40%



4. Captain Marvel - 37.5%



5. Spiderman - Far From Home - 35%



6. Gully Boy - 32.5%



7. Lion King - 32.5%



8. Kalank - 30%



9. Total Dhamaal - 30%



10. Kesari - 22.5% (released on Holi when morning shows have limited audience)
