It's official: movie goers prefer lions to dolphins.
And also to really good looking actors.
For the second weekend in a row, the 3D version of The Lion King captured the box office prize, earning just a bit more money than Dolphin Tale and the Brad Pitt-anchored Moneyball. Taylor Lautner's first post-Twilight role finished a distant fourth, as rounded up below:
- The Lion King (3D): $22.1 million
- Moneyball: $20.6 million
- Dolphin Tale: $20.2 million
- Abduction: $11.2 million
- Killer Elite: $9.5 million
