The Lion King 3D Easily Dominates A Boring Box Office

Yes, The Lion King's return to theaters in the third dimension took in almost $30 million this weekend, much higher than analysts predicted as no other movie could compete with it. Contagion (last weeks numero uno) only took a 35% dip this weekend for a $14 million plus, second place finish... While the Ryan Gosling vehicle, Drive, took in $11 million for third.

Meanwhile, the two other newcomers, Straw Dogs and I Don't Know How She Does It failed to find an audience, and looks like they will become minor flops.
