John Wick 3: Parabellum fell to number two this weekend with a four-day haul of $31 million.

The debut weekend secured the official release date of John Wick 4, which diehard fans were hoping would happen
It’s the sixth-highest Memorial Day weekend total ever, topping the 2011 mark of $103.4 million for “The Hangover Part II.” The top total came in 2007, when “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” took in $139 million in its first four days. “Aladdin” is also dominating moviegoing internationally with $121 million in 56 markets.
“Aladdin” has outperformed Disney’s pre-opening domestic projections, which were in the $75 million to $85 million range, taking in $86.1 million in its first three days. The reboot of the original 1992 animated movie — which generated $502 million in worldwide box office — stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Will Smith as the Genie, Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar. Guy Ritchie directed “Aladdin,” produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich.

The first and last time this happened was in 2007 when Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End opened with $114.7 million following Shrek the Third's $121.6 million opening the weekend prior. In fact, the rarity of what will take place this weekend doesn't end there as only eight times following a $100+ million performance at the weekend box office has a film not repeated at #1 the following weekend. Even more rare, two films have never brought in more than $100 million over the same weekend.
Should Incredibles 2 drop 45.26% or less this weekend we'll have yet another piece of history to discuss come Sunday morning.

Pirates went on to earn $153 million including Thursday night previews for the four-day Memorial Day weekend, which is also a record. Currently Solo is tracking for anywhere between $11o and $150 million depending on who you ask, so it will be a close race to see if the record falls or not.
Compared to the last Star Wars Story, Rogue One, Solo came up way short of expectations. The first standalone Star Wars film earned more than double Solo at $29 million for its Thursday night preview showings.

In addition to many fans wanting this movie to be a scene-by-scene reenactment of the 12-volume manga series, we have the additional race issue. Hollywood has a bad habit of whitewashing, and given the white and black (distinctly non-Japanese, in other words) leads of this movie, many fans are already cursing this flick. But what about the original creators? We reported back around San Diego Comic-Con that producer of the film Masi Oka had revealed that they loved the film,
I'm not a fan of shadow Ryuk, so hopefully, we get a little color on the guy and a full picture as the film continues. I also wasn't too crazy about the acting in this scene, and if I'm being honest I didn't like any of what I saw at all. For me, this is a bad sign. Maybe I'm just too cynical to give the film a chance, did anyone feel differently?

Dead Men Tell No Tales -- not to be confused with the similarly titled Dead Man's Chest (aka Pirates 2) -- picks up a thread teased at the end of At World's End (Pirates 3): Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) is attempting to free his father, Will (Orlando Bloom), from an eternity cursed to the Flying Dutchman.
