Box Score: The Lion King reclaims the box office throne

Returning to theaters after first ruling the summer of 1994, the re-release of The Liong King 3D [TLK3D] tallied an estimated $29.3 million to retake the box office crown.   Families comprised  two-thirds of the audience. The animated classic is likely to extend its advertised two-weeks only engagement.

Last week's champ Contagion [CONTG] stepped down to second place with $14.5 million.  The viral thriller diminished a respectable 35%.

Drive [DRIVE] finished third with a $11.0 million debut.  The crime thriller attracted young males expecting a fast-paced actioner as well as older moviegoers brought out by great reviews.   

The remake Straw Dogs [STRAW] grossed $5.0 million to debut at the fifth spot. The evenly mixed crowd gave the film poor marks.

I Don't Know How She Does It [IDKHS] earned $4.5 million to open sixth overall.  The target audience of working women were too busy to check out  the working mom comedy.
