I'm so sick of 3D movies please let this trend die. Avatar started it and it just wont end. 3D makes a movie earn more than it really would have without it. I'm suprised moneyball made this much. Nobody watches baseball movies. It was the highest grossing baseball movie ever. Nobody wants to see Jacob without twilight.

Even though The Lion King was supposed to be a limited 2 week engagement, I would Not be surprised if the powers that be hold it over even longer than the 2 weeks advertised. The Lion King in 3-D was an absolute pleasure to revisit!!
