'The Lion King' Set to Devour July Box Office Opening Weekend Record

'The Lion King' Set to Devour July Box Office Opening Weekend Record Disney's "The Lion King" is taking its place as king of the box office, grossing an estimated $78.5 million from 4,725 screens on its opening day as industry estimates now project a $175-190 million opening weekend for the latest Disney remake. Not only would an opening in that range stand behind "Avengers: Endgame" as the second-highest opening of 2019, it would break the July opening weekend record and possibly the record for animated films as well. The currently July opening record belongs to "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2" with $169.1 million in 2011.

Disney Has Already Broken Its Own Annual Global Box Office Record With $7.67 Billion The 2019 box office was predicted to be a year of Disney domination, and that has proven to be all too true as the studio has broken the all-time annual global box office record in just seven months thanks to Marvel films like "Avengers: Endgame" and its latest release, "The Lion King." The previous record had also been set by Disney back in 2016, the year where Disney truly began to show off the power it had accumulated through its acquisition of several major franchises.

The list of countries where some form of AI surveillance is used includes liberal democracies such as the United States and France as well as more autocratic regimes.

Tuesday's report from the group says Chinese tech companies led by Huawei are supplying much of the AI surveillance to countries around the world. Other companies such as Japan's NEC Corporation and U.S.-based IBM, Palantir and Cisco are also major international providers of AI surveillance tools.

The report doesn't distinguish between legitimate and unlawful or harmful uses of digital surveillance.
