Disney’s The Lion King earned an estimated $454.4m worldwide over the weekend as the animation vaulted to $531m after 10 days, fuelled by a $269.4m international weekend and a $185m record July debut in North America that will encourage box office observers after sluggish overall performance in the year-to-date.

Sony’s Spider-Man: Far From Home is fast approaching the $1bn global milestone, while Warner Bros horror Annabelle Comes Home is approaching $200m worldwide.

Jon Favreau’s photo-real adventure adaptation The Lion King stands at $346m at international box office and $98m in China after 10 days, and opened top in the UK on $19.9m for the second highest launch of the year behind Avengers: Endgame.
