The Lion King left a big paw print at the box office for its premiere, raking in $531 million globally. It's now the No. 1 movie in the world. More inside...

No surprise here!

The Lion King dominated at the box office this weekend...everywhere!

The live action remake totally slayed over the last 10 days (opening early in China), raking in $531 million globally, according to Deadline. Sheesh! It's now the No. 1 movie in all of its opening markets, which debuted in 51 new hubs. Over the last 10 days, the film grossed $346 million overseas, which boosted the numbers for the global box office and set new records.

It raked in $191 million following its debut in nearly 5,000 theaters in North America.

It roared within the Top 5 industry opening weekends ever in several hubs, including Russia, Brazil, Mexico, Australia and the entire Latin America region. The Lion King left its mark, charting above The Jungle Book and Aladdin in all material markets, and Beauty And The Beast in nearly all. It's predicted once Japan, Hong Kong and Italy numbers are in, Disney’s CGI/live-action adaptation film will reach at least $900 million overseas. WOW! That's insane.

Also, The Lion King grabbed the ninth-biggest opening of all time, which is a new July record. Woot!

Looks like the star-studded addition of Beyonce & Donald Glover gave the Jon Favreau-helmed film the mega boost it needed, despite mixed reviews.
