Disney's new Jungle Cruise movie starring The Rock and Emily Blunt set sail over the weekend, and it made a lot of money, both in theaters and from Disney+.

According to Deadline, the movie made $34.2 million in the US over the Friday-Sunday period, plus a further $27.6 million from international markets. On top of that, the movie pulled in more than $30 million from Disney+ with Premier Access to bring its total to around $91.8 million.

The majority of the Disney+ revenue is coming from the US, according to Deadline. For comparison, Marvel's Black Widow made an estimated $60 million from Disney+ over its opening weekend. Series star Scarlett Johansson is now suing Disney over her deal with the media giant.

"We have delivered the No. 1 family film opening of the year and take great solace in that; one can't compare the numbers to anything pre-pandemic," Disney's Tony Chambers said. "With great word of mouth and audience exits, we've exceeded our own and industry expectations."

According to Deadline, Jungle Cruise was expected to make $25 million at the US box office and $65 million globally (before Disney+ numbers), so the film is indeed doing big numbers, but the figures aren't strong enough by certain metrics, according to some people.

$91.8 million after one weekend is no doubt a pile of money, but it's "not the ingredients to profit off a tentpole," the report said. Separately, The New York Times reported that the movie cost $200 million to produce and carried costs of at least $100 million in marketing.

You can see the full top 10 list for the US box office's latest weekend below. As you will see, Jungle Cruise was easily the best-performing film of the weekend, which makes sense.
