"THE LION KING 3-D" REIGNS OVER BOX OFFICE


Still from The Lion King
Family always comes first and that would be the case at the Box Office this weekend as Disney's The Lion King 3-D reigns supreme with $29.2 million earned from 2,330 theatres.

Former Champion Contagion by Stephen Soderbergh slips to second this weekend with $14.4 million after landing on-top last week.

Debuting in third is early Best Picture contender Drive starring Ryan Gosling, with $11 million for Lionsgate/Alliance Films, opening in 2,886 theatres. It currently stands at a stellar 93% on Tomatometer at Rotten Tomatoes.

Disney's The Help also is still going strong in fourth spot this weekend in its sixth week of release with $6.4 million this weekend, just ahead of the Remake of Thriller Straw Dogs in fifth spot, starring James Marsden and Kate Bosworth.

I Don't Know How She Does It starring Sarah Jessica Parker opens in sixth spot this weekend with $4.5 million and poor reviews at 20% on the Tomatometer.

The excellent Warrior is in eighth spot with $2.7 million in its second week for Lionsgate/Alliance Films, which is a pity.  Hopefully it will see strong numbers overseas.
