Despite the dominance of new Hollywood release Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw, The Lion King continued its splendid run at the box office. The live-action photorealistic venture raked in Rs 5.67 crore and yesterday and now stands with the grand total of Rs 139.20 crore. The film is expected to enter the 150 crore club by its fourth weekend at the ticket windows. It has already surpassed the business of Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 and will cross the lifetime collections of another Hollywood biggie The Jungle Book in the coming days.
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.
