Dumbo Flies Into First with $45 Million Debut

The Disney and Tim Burton live action remake, Dumbo, easily took the top spot at the box office this weekend ($45 million). However, this was below what many analysts predicted and adding mediocre reviews, this could be a first miss for Disney's live action remake phase.  With that said, it has already picked up $71 million overseas, for an early worldwide total of $116 million.
