‘Little Mermaid’ - $125M Memorial Day Weekend Opening

This makes the film one of the best showings ever for screenings before the holiday weekend.

If the Rob Marshall directed musical keeps pace, Little Mermaid will rank as the four highest Memorial Day opening ever after Top Gun: Maverick ($160.5M), Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End ($153M), and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ($152M). Hands down, Little Mermaid buries Aladdin‘s 4-day start over the holiday of $116.8M, to be the best for a live action take of a Disney toon.

That preview figure of $10.3M is rolled into Friday’s figure and also counts $850K from the special fan Wednesday showtimes. Overall, Ariel’s preview number is the 7th best ever for a PG/G rated title.
