“The Lion King” topped the box office in its second weekend, dominating the box office for a $76.6 million. This comes after its massive $192 million debut, which was the eighth biggest in North America ever.
Director Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” took second place, with estimates placing the film at $40.2 million in opening weekend ticket sales. This is Tarantino’s ninth film, and is on track to become his highest opening weekend ever. That’s above earlier estimates which had originally placed the film at around $30 million for its opening weekend — about $8 million less than Tarantino’s previous box office record set by “Inglourious Basterds” which opened with $38 million in 2009.
“Spider-Man: Far From Home,” “Toy Story 4,” and “Crawl” rounded out the top 5.
