Dolphin Tale won the weekend, with Moneyball and The Lion King 3D in second and third, respectively. How crazy is it that in a week that saw four wide-release new releases, the top three spots at the box office were filled by movies that were already out in theaters for more than week? It’d be one thing if critics trashed all these films, but 50/50 did very well with critics and moviegoers, so why didn’t it do better at the box office?
The Lion King 3D was able to retain the top spot at the box office for a second weekend but we want to know if Moneyball and Dolphin Tale lived up to the strong reviews it received. Was Abduction really as bad as critics made it out to be? And what did action fans think of Killer Elite? Vote in our polls and sound off in the comments section.
Busy weekend at the multiplex, and whaddya know – the king of the jungle is also king at the box office. The Lion King 3D managed to top all the new releases, which kinda says something about what audiences want from Hollywood if a 20-year-old cartoon is beating all the latest new releases, right?

No one saw the winner of this past weekend’s box office coming, to the point that we didn’t even include the film in our Box Office Poll on Friday. Yup, The Help surprised everyone by beating out all of the new releases with $20.5 million, which was more than enough to take first place. So what’s up? How come no one went to the movies this weekend? You can answer that question in the comments, and if you did go to the movies then feel free to rate the films you saw

As expected, Transformers: Dark of the Moon remained ahead of the competition for a second week in a row, grabbing $47.1 million.
