Just like Bollywood, even Hollywood films are enjoying a sensational run at the box office. All Hollywood biggies like Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man: Far From Home and Aladdin have hit the billion mark at the global market and the latest one to join them will be The Lion King as it currently stands with the grand total of $963 million and will enter the $1 billion club by tomorrow or Wednesday. It will be Disney's second consecutive film after Aladdin to achieve this feat at the ticket windows.
While the film is a live-action animated venture, Filmmaker Jon Favreau has shared a snapshot of the only "real" scene in his film. It is the first scene of the film, depicting a sunrise photographed in Africa. "This is the only real shot in 'The Lion King'. There are 1,490 rendered shots created by animators and CG artists. I slipped in a single shot that we actually photographed in Africa to see if anyone would notice," Favreau captioned the image, adding: "It is the first shot of the movie that begins (the song) 'The circle of life'." Favreau took to his social media accounts to share the photograph of the rising sun. The image is considered iconic and found space in the 1994 animation version of "The Lion King", too.
Talking about the Indian box office, it has crossed the 100 crore mark and is eyeing for Rs 150 crore in its theatrical run at the ticket windows. The new film brings back the adventures of Simba, the lion cub who is to succeed his father Mufasa as King of the Pride Lands. The film updates the classic tale with photo-realistic and computer-generated animation. Favreau had earlier helmed the 2016 global blockbuster, "The Jungle Book". Anyway, have you liked the film?
