BOX OFFICE: “Aladdin” over-performs expectations, @$113 over Memorial Day weekend

The actual tally was $112.7.

Big news. Bigger news? The busts that “Booksmart” and “Brightburn” turned out to be.

“Brightburn” was critically dismissed and only managed $9.5.

“Booksmart” earned effusive praise from critics, but under $9 million from paying patrons. $8.5. Maybe it’ll stick around and do well enough, maybe it should have been platformed. I saw it a second time over the weekend in a small town cinema, sparse turnout and it didn’t play for that crowd. So that might be l she wrote. No “Superbad” momentum.
