An Inspiring Dolphin Tale: Kids Flick Holds Off Moneyball

by at . Comments

Moneyball may have succeeded against traditional baseball wisdom, but the well-reviewed movie just can't knock off any animals at the box office.

A week after falling to The Lion King, Brad Pitt and company were defeated this week by Dolphin Tale, which finished with the most money earned on Friday and Saturday.

Among new releases, 50/50 was a modest success, considering its small budget, while What's Your Number? couldn't exactly establish Anna Faris as a movie star. Let's take a look at the top 10:

  1. Dolphin Tale: $14.25 million
  2. Moneyball: $12.5 million
  3. The Lion King 3D: $11.1 million
  4. 50/50: $8.85 million
  5. Courageous: $8.8 million
  6. Dream House: $8.2 million
  7. Abduction: $5.65 million
  8. What's Your Number?: $5.6 million
  9. Contagion: $5 million
  10. Killer Elite: $4.85 million
