"The Lion King (3D)" still got the crown beating out four newcomers!
Brad Pitt's 'Moneyball' failed to strike out Disney's 3D re-release classic, who managed to conquer the top spot for two consecutive weeks. Moneyball's marketing play gave them the edge last Friday but failed to slide and dethrone the king.
Other new releases are Dolphin Tale, Taylor Lautner's Abduction, Contagion and Killer Elite.
