The Lion King in 3D

Four newcomers weren’t quite strong enough to unseat The Lion King (in 3D), which held the top spot for the second weekend in a row.

The Lion King in 3D achieved $21.9 million this weekend, bringing the re-release’s 10-day total to $61.5 million. When added to previous Lion King grosses, the movie has now made $390 million, which is good for 12th place on the all-time domestic chart. Many theaters are opting to continue to play the movie past the initial two-week engagement, and therefore it’s now guaranteed to top $400 million and enter the all-time Top 10.
