'Lion King' Bests 'Moneyball' at Box Office

The Lion King 3D maintained its top spot at the box office this week!

The rerelease of the beloved Disney animated film brought in $22.1 million, just beating Brad Pitt‘s Moneyball, which earned $20.6 million, Variety reports.

Third place went to Dolphin Tale, featuring Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd – the film brought in a strong $20.3 million.

Also released this weekend were Taylor Lautner‘s Abduction, which brought in $11.2 million, and Killer Elite, which earned a slightly lower than expected $9.5 million.

  • 3D

    they should factor in the price of 3d tickets. does 3d really make a movie better? seems more like a ploy to charge a lot more. is it just me or do those annoying 3d glasses make everything darker? i’ll be willing to pay more for 3d movies if they had the technology to do it without those glasses.
    lion king is a classic and a beloved movie by many. on the hand, a bad movie is still a bad movie in 3d or not.

    Lion King is a classic and it is a movie parents and children can see together. ( = $’s) throw in 3d costs and there you go. Moneyball is a great film, Brad haters are blinded.

  • correction

    what a flop. brad pitt is an A list tabloid star not an A list actor

  • z list

    lmao brad pitt cannot beat out a cartoon. a freaking 30 year old cartoon. z list actor he sure is. his good looks helped him back in the day but now he has lost it all nobody wants to see his ageing face on the big screen.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    wow my idol has become a z list actor. even bounty hunter did better than this. let me cut myself like my idol jolie.

  • Mama told me not to tadle tale

    @Media Wh@re MANiston: Do you like just sit around refreshing the page and replying to post’s…Because that is pretty sad dude! i mean you’re actually on everyone JP and even JA post JJ posts seriously you seem obsessive GET A LIFE HUN!

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    brad and angelina suck, they are media wh@res and use their kids for publicity. they also suck at the box office.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    to be honest, i am just jealous of beautiful jennifer aniston that is why i write mean stuff about her. justin theroux is a hottie. i agree with jen fans when they say and angie are on drugs thats why they have aged drastically.

  • So

    Do the clouds spell the word “sex” in this version too?

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    how come jennifer keeps producing box office hit. only this year alone her 2 movies has grossed up to 500 mili. but brads tree of life tanked and noe money ball. i am disappointed.

  • Pimping my kids Jolie

    @Media Wh@re MANiston: Glad you finally accepted that JP’s are psycho’s

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    brad and angelina paid me to write bad stuff about jen. i hvnt been paid for this month and i am pissed. i hate their guts.

  • CONGRATULATIONS BRAD!!!

    Congratulations Brad on your movie finishing 2nd despite the media flogging you received in the past week. Goes to show you that Brad is still a superstar, if he was not, Moneyball would have tanked Big time!!!! Thank God there are always audiences out there with real brains and do not feed on negativity in these stupid blogs. All Brad haters – TAKE THAT!!!!! IN YOUR FACE!!!!!!!. And however much you try to spin it and make it seem like a flop, no site has called Moneyball a flop or said it tanked. Congratulations Brad!!!! Haters are dying of jealous. You are a real superstar, even former ex’s can’t bring you down!!!!

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    To the troll whoever you are stealing my name. Free feel to use my name anytime. Do you really think I give a s hit. I am not surprised you trolls are stupid. Too stupid to come up with you own name.

    The JP fans know who’s the real “Media Wh@re MANiston” is.

  • Hypocrites

    Lion King is 17year old classic 3D movie..you jen fans know good and well kids movies always do well…wondering how come Jen debuted at number 7 in switch and couldnt beat out lil bow wow opening weekend..the BH which all keep bragging about lost to a kids movie as well and alice in W which was already in its 3RD week..funny how yu all say its a shame pitt lost to a kids movie but when Kung Fu Panda one and 2 had such success you were screaming that its a kids movie of course it would do well..hypocrites much?

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    @CONGRATULATIONS BRAD!!!: @CONGRATULATIONS BRAD!!!: yeah congratulations on yet another flop. tree of life is still struggling. until i get paid by brad and angie i will continue to be on jens side.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    Hypocrites @ 09/25/2011 at 4:50 pm

    Exactly. They are hypocrite. The biggest of them all.

  • be real

    @Hypocrites: puhlees ur in denial.. 17 year old cartoon that is out on dvd and on broadway. but still brad pitt cannot beat it lol.

  • Laranjen

    Boycott made a difference —- numbers could have been reversed. He’ll get an oscar nom. anyway —all this could work in Leos favor.
    Oscar drama ahead !

  • poor American

    Poor Americans, as long as it has 3D, poor American will see it.

  • pitt da mediaho

    What happened to Pitt’s star power? A brad Pitt movie with this type of competition shoulda been in the 30 millions not low 20s.I bet tomorrows official numbers will have Pitt behind the dolphin. He’s a tabloid star

  • be real

    be real @ 09/25/2011 at 4:53 pm

    Really. Putt Aniston against Lion King and see if she can beat. Moron

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    oo.. i just got a call from brads camp telling me i should be calm and i will get paid soon. they are waiting on angie to release the check. i guess very soon i will be back on team brandgelina. is not easy spending 24hrs a day defending them against loyal jen fans. (deep inside i am a jen fan but she is not paying me ;( )

    Disney movie always does well in the box office. But Moneyball is a masterpiece, it will get many Oscar nods. The box office is pretty good, the best baseball movie opening weekend. Bravo.
