Transcript for 'The Lion King' movie debuts with $185 million at the box office
Now how about Lara Spencer and some "Pop news." We begin with the newly crowned king of the box office. Yep, "The lion king" roaring into the record books this weekend with a massive $185 million debut. I guess you liked it. I think so. It is the biggest domestic launch for a pg-rated film of all time. Wow. It is also the biggest July opening ever and it's the largest ever opening for a Disney remake. A couple more stat, are you ready? The second best debut of 2019 behind only "Avengers: Endgame" which we might have mentioned a little earlier, just bested "Avatar" to become the highest grossing movie of all time. Your lesson has concluded. The box office lesson. It was so hot, great to be indoors watching movies. Yep, agreed. Miranda lambert in the news. She knows how to beat the heat, while heating things up. She posted these pictures showing a nice view in lake tahoe and a nice view. Those abs getting some air time posting this video last week just before the release of her new track. It all comes out in the wash. May should have been all comes out in the washboard. You know she loves her man in a uniform. He used to be stationed right here outside "Gma." The couple first met here. We like to think of ourselves as matchmakers.

Also in the news, Keanu reeves, currently in Louisiana filming the long awaited secretle to "Bill and Ted's excellent adventure." It pays to be nice to him. Driving by a sign, he doesn't hesitate and jumps out of his car, autographed the sign for the family, the family was home, 16-year-old eaten hunt who made that ran outside. Keanu more than happy to chat with him and take pictures with the family. Ethan's mom saying he could not have been nicer. Keanu watt a video game conference and screamed that out you're breathtaking and became his catchphrase. Became viral. That's exactly how he left the family that day. "Bill and Ted face the muse" debuts in August next year. Nice things all the time. So great. Pops up doing nice things. He sure does. Lara. Finally we want to you meet Archibald the German shepherd who loves his doggie day care but when he gets thirsty, he thinks he's that Archie. One of the English Royals refusing to brink from the bowl. You can see what this dapper dog wants and sure enough the second the tap is turned off, yeah. The good boy gulps it down. I would just like to say turning the tap off. He may think he's too classy for the bowl but Archie's technique could use a little work and so could my talking so I will end
