Disney can still draw a crowd at the global box office. The studio tops the bill with the live-action remake of its classic “Aladdin,” starring Will Smith as the Genie, which grossed over $207 million on its opening weekend. “John Wick Parabellum” and “Pokémon: Detective Pikachu” follow in second and third, while “Avengers: Endgame” continues to edge closer to the record set by “Avatar.”
