(AllHipHop News) The magic of Will Smith has been impacting the box office for three decades. In 2019, the rapper-turned-actor reached yet another milestone in his legendary career.
Disney's Aladdin passed Independence Day to become Smith's most successful motion picture across the globe. Director Guy Ritchie’s live-action remake has made $874.2 million worldwide. Independence Day topped out at $817.4 million globally in 1996.
“To be in this game as long as I’ve been in this game and to have my biggest movie at this point in my career, I just want to say thank you," said Smith in an Instagram video. He went on to express "thank you" in several languages.
Aladdin ($305.9 million) is highly likely to overtake Independence Day ($306.2 million) at the domestic box office as well. The 2016 comic book movie Suicide Squad ($325.1 million) is Will Smith's all-time leader in North America.
