The Lion King has an excellent opening weekend at the box office. The film has collected a huge 54 crores in first 3 days of its release.
The Hollywood release witnessed massive growth on Saturday as the collections went up by 70% which is very rare these days. It showed further growth of 28% on Sunday as it collected 24.54 crores. Generally the films do not show such growth after a massive Saturday. The Lion King was benefited by its genre as it is a film for families and kids which come in good numbers on Sunday.
The film is likely to hold well on weekdays and can pick up pace again in the second weekend. The Lion King will be a box office hit for sure though we can't predict its lifetime gross as of now.
