This is a pretty quiet weekend thanks to the overwhelming economic power of Disney, the big bet of the house of the mouse to maintain its success in box office is a new version of Aladdin, with Will Smith painted of blue. If it is not his whim, three other releases seek his preference: one on Impossible loves (the sun is also a star), catastrophes (disaster in Paris), and Drama (the anonymous artist).
