The Lion King had an excellent first weekend of 54 crore nett and showed an extraordinary trend as collections went from 11 crore nett on Friday to 24 crore nett on Saturday. It went up almost 120% from Friday to Sunday which has not happened before for a film which opened double digits.



The growth on Saturday was sort of expected though maybe not as much as 70% but Sunday is definitely a surprise as Hollywood films do not go up 25-30% on Sunday and generally films have not gone up a lot on Sunday after big Saturday growth. Here with The Lion King the dubbed versions performed on the Sunday especially the Hindi version which saw good gains across mass markets.. 



The first weekend is the third highest ever after Avengers - Endgame and Avengers - Infinity War and it is also the only Hollywood film outside those two Avengers films to record a collection of over 20 crore nett on a single day.



The first weekend collections of The Lion King are as follows



Friday - 11,00,00,000 apprx



Saturday - 19,00,00,000 apprx



Sunday - 24,00,00,000 apprx




TOTAL - 54,00,00,000 apprx



The film should hold on very well on Monday on this trend though the kids audience which would have bought the families out in large numbers over the weekend will not be there on the weekdays but this audience is sure to be back next Saturday and Sunday. The film is a sure shot HIT and remains to be seen how big it becomes. .
